Are we talking about the one on the right? It looks pretty hot, didn't see it the last time I was at that GC.

Pickguard looks weird. Looks like a Rondo or some other knockoff company that *almost* got it right.

I got to play one a few days ago. Sounded good and felt nice but it's a project guitar. I could see myself buying it and changing out the bridge, bridge pickup, pickguard and wiring. I would of loved the neck better if the finish wasn't so thick. The neck pickup makes the guitar. A great guitar for effects pedals.

Funny story, second to last time I was there I was playing a thinline tele and when I went to put it back I didn't get it in the rack thing so it dropped on the floor and I quickly put it back and left. I checked it quickly and it seemed fine, but the next time I came in it wasn't on the rack anymore. No one called me out on it so far so it's all good.

That is basically what I said when I saw pictures of these after they were first announced. It looks (and I'm sure feels) like a cheap knockoff intended for beginners.

From the hang tag, it looks like they are being sold only at GC in the US? (At least for now...) Another reason I wouldn't buy one. I still want to try it though, maybe it'll make me eat my words.

Sorry, but I don't llike the tiny (compared to a regular Tele) body. I'll stick with my 60s Baja Tele, thank you very much!

^sunburst '60s Baja rules

Didn't realize these shortscale teles had small bodies as well and am similarly put off, certainly at that price anyway.

I second the "Rondo" comment, as the proud owner of an SX gloss-necked '60s-cover'd Jazz Bass I'd put up against the 3x more expensive CV '60s any day. Fender are just dicks.

that's sad man, you shouldn't feel that strongly about any guitar.
