    Mark my words this will end in tears, if used as a weapon it won't last two seconds, and the splinters will end up in eyes, finger nails and various other sensitive areas, it's just not structurally strong enough to be a Tele IMHO :whistling:

    Different strokes I guess, because I think its gorgeous looking.. playing it though is a whole nother smoke.

    Edit:

    If the last minute of the video is any indication of how it sounds.. have to say hard pass.

    It reminds me of the guitar version of this:
    B82DA875-2698-4585-A682-B1CC11F58962.jpeg

    Also, the points of the F holes are supposed to be positioned even with the bridge on a proper archtop design. It looks stupid if that is wrong. The whole phony violin distressing looks hokey too. If it is indeed $30k then it’s about $27k overpriced. Does the headstock have a carved violin scroll on it?

    I heard this strange noise from below the ground earlier. Somewhere between a rumble and a scraping sound. I think it was Leo turning in his grave, as he realised what the affordable guitar for the working musician he designed had turned into.

    I know a guy who will do that build for 1/3rd that... and probably still laugh all the way to the bank.

    At that price I'd almost expect it to be made out of 300yr old wood leftover from the original Stradivari workshop...

    A real Strad is worth 30 million.

    i was watching 'Master And Commander: The Far Side Of The World' last night, and i recalled how i'd heard somewhere
    that as many if not more casualites and fatalities came from flying splinters and shards of wood than from the shot itself.
