    I remember Robert Baker having some kind of endorsement with the brand. He's a youtube musician-influencer

    I came very close to buying one the other day... but I was too afraid of not liking it and never being able to sell it and just flat out losing money

    The Tele club did not think so. So a guy that worked for Vola came and talked with us. He was a nice man. He worked for the American Vola Vista line of guitars. They hated the design.

    Luckily, I'm more forward thinking than the tele club.

    Thanks. Never heard or seen one. I love T types and big necks. Well done, IMO.

    I'd get one, but worried about resale and for sure take a big hit... the neck might be just a bit too big for me at .90 at the first fret and gradually gets bigger.. I think I max out around .86...

    well when I first opened it up I couldnt believe how perfect it was... it completely reminded me of a Suhr custom order I purchased... I still cant find one flaw on it.. its crazy... anyhow.. but the neck.. aaarrrgghhh... first day I was really worried it was going to be too big... second day.. ah not too bad... 3 rd day I was digging the fat neck... is it my fav neck ..no...but I dont mind it at all now.... the guitar still plays fast for me... and I kinda like that its different... completely changed my mind about fat necks....

    soundwise its nice.. I havent really cranked it up yet at gig levels... hopefully if some of our gigs get rebooked towards the end of the summer.. then i can really test it out...

    so as of right now its a keeper... I got it for a great price... so to me it was a steal... now with that being said... not sure I'd be able to sell it for the price I paid.. I'd like to think I can but.. who knows

    Glad to hear it. I am tempted to get one of the strat models. I sure would like to try one before, but that's just not going to happen any time soon. I kind of like big necks, even though I have relatively small hands. Comparing it to a Suhr is a bold statement, and it really makes me want one even more now. Hope you enjoy your new guitar!!

    I dont think the Strat type has the fatter neck like the tele.. make sure you verify it first... its a MIJ guitar and all the vids I watched everyone said how perfect they are made... I was skeptical too.. and mine I think is used.. I cant tell.. Im pretty sure its a 2018... but looks brand new to me
    if you cant get one used for a great price.. I'd try one that you can return that is new. IMO
