The one thing that amazed everyone who touched this guitar...it must weigh 5 lbs at the most!!! It feels like a toy.....right up til you slap that first chord on it!!! I had a lot of guys who normally dont play tele style guitars come up to me saying they may have to rethink that!! LOLOL This is one of the prototypes that they sent out for guys to see out the BBQ I threw the other day. Honestly I think I like this one the most out of all of them they sent to the house. Its just phenomenal. It really has me thinking about a hollow type guitar for my next purchase! And the copper hardware is just the Cats Meow!!! THe copper is just NUTZ!!!! Killer looking backplate!!
