    Those are probably the best looking Lentz guitars I've ever seen. Just wonderful guitars.

    Talk about two guitars with personality. It's amazing how far the finish and appointments can stretch a design.

    As much as I like the trans colors on Scott's guitars, the oil-black one is just stunning. What a mean machine!

    Beautiful guitars! What a joy to see Scott and Co. getting so creative. I know all of us who have supported Scott over the years are delighted to see him rebound so powerfully.

    I really disliked the first Lentz offerings, but I gotta say those are the best yet. The looks don' put me off on these. Maybe I just don't like the tele bridge on it?

    Anyway, get a vintage trem on there and we're in buisness!

    Good to see you're doin well Scott! :dude

    Is it yours? If so, congrats! That is one great looking guitar. I wonder how it would look like with a w/b/w 3ply guard....

    Man, what a killer piece :dude

    I Like the looks of em':) I really dig the way the block inlays look on the orange guitar. Very cool.

    I like them, especially the orange one. The black one with a maple neck would be a beauty as well.

    Its off topic but I haven't tuned my Lentz once, since I received it, it just stays in tune. Is it because of the nut or the string tree?
