Aye, been seeing these a lot on Instragram. Really like the design overall, just a crappy headstock.

The guitarist from The Horrors has a signature model -

I dig the old-school/homemade looks, but I bet the fact that it's a 3-saddle Tele saddle scheme will put some people off. It does leave you wondering "why"... clearly going for a classic vibe with the whole thing, but would've been easy enough to sort 6 saddles. Although I suppose that lone bridge piece that accepts them is a pretty nifty way of having a mostly-original and simple/cheap bridge design on an original guitar, and I like how the shape of it around the mounting screws lets it be used as a through-body hardtail or a bridge in a separate vibrato tailpiece design.

3-saddle Tele bridges are notoriously known for adding up to ten times more mojo to the guitar. If Fano gets away with selling guitars equipped with 3-saddle bridges for a couple thousand bucks each, then there should be something special about those 3-saddle bridges... or not.
