Those harp guitars are really spectacular.

Yeah - pretty amazing to look at and play as well. The wood just resonates really well with all the notes.

Maybe 3 years ago I picked up an '83 mij Tele Custom RI for roughly $300. It had been played heavily and had plenty of knicks, dings, and weatherchecking to prove it. Looked like more of a relic than my $4K CS Relic, and more importantly it played great. The prices these days amaze me.

the japanese fenders are damn good. nothing like the messican ones.

yup. The key is to find one used at a random local music store for a couple hundred bucks.

Lovely. Something I don't understand is people preference for a p90 neck and a humbucker bridge. I would prefer the other way around.

Thanks man - this guy came this way. Strangely enough, that's also the way I like it smile.gif

Really like that shade of red. And I just thought I'd cured myself of a purchase fixation.

Epiphone, so not the Gibson LP, but also a lot cheaper.

These guitars are a great. I'm a big into the US made guitars but this one is phenomenal. I can't figure out which humbuckers to drop into this guy though.
