    I absolutely love these guitars. Definitely some of the best playing ones I have ever had.

    Here is the first one.

    Never heard of Zane Guitars before, but your Retro Rocker looks killer!

    They are a new company out of Antigo, WI. that has been around now for maybe 3 years but their stuff is top notch. Some of the best necks I have ever played.

    Nice.
    The headstock on the bolt-ons reminds me of Batman.

    Nice looking Fender/PRS clones.
    Not crazy about the Fender like headstock shape.
    Jay, are you affiliated with Zane guitars or have an endorsement deal?

    Per his signature, I'd say "yes".

    Yes, I have an endorsement deal with them. And as far as them being knockoff clones, I will take the quality of these any day over and actual Fender. Don't get me wrong, I respect what Fender did decades ago because the business would not be where it is today if it had not been for Leo Fender. Unfortunately, the company has changed a lot sense then and for the most part, not for the better. I still do like some of their stuff and enjoy the shape of many of the bodies but wanted something with better quality. A friend hooked me up with the company a little over a year ago and not only a business relationship developed but a friendship too.

    Not a fan of the headstock shapes, but the Prodigy looks to be pretty much exactly what I'd like in a T-type. Nice guitars!

    That one is probably my favorite one. I love the roasted neck and the abalone inlays. Both of those things I am a huge sucker for.
