    What a unique guitar. I would love to hear some opinions on them.

    i've played a couple. they're pretty cool. albert lee did a clinic at the store i was working at. he can play the literal hell out of them (and he's really nice, too), but i found them a little small in dimensions (body and neck) for me. of course, if i were to grow to become half the guitar player mr lee is, i might find them more to my taste. the fit and finish is very nice, and the small body makes quite light. the neck is very "small tele", in my recollection.

    fabulous guitars, very well balanced, both physically and tonally. I wouldn't mind owning one, for sure.

    I had one with 3 MM90s, and it was a tone monster. The neck is very unique, and you either love it or hate it. In the end, I just couldn't get used to it. It's a fat C, and felt narrow. Great craftsmanship.

    I've got a Gold Albert Lee and it's my #1 guitar out of a herd of 11. Awesome playing and sounding guitar. The neck is super comfortable to me. Very cool guitar with quality build and excellent playability. I hope to own more than one. :BEER

    the Jetson's designed that one ! i also had one wit 3 P90's and whammy - second the verdict of the gentlemen above : great stuff qua build, fit + finish. sadly i had to sell it - cash crisis. i would buy an EB/MM anytime, they deliver. on my wish-list i have an Axis Super Sport /trem .... :AOK

    Albert Lee needs to get back on a telecaster where he belongs. I'm sure its a nice guitar & loved be many, but sounds exactly like a strat to me.

    Got a gold P90 hardtail here on the emporium quite a while ago, and I love it. I have loved the "Jetsons" look since day 1. I don't understand the strat connection for Mr. Lee, never did. But it's a cool little hot rod of a guitar, with really tough tones with P90's. Mine has Lollars, and the silent system disconnected. And, it's Gold, Gold baby! It's not a replacement for my Callaham (my #1), but for the $, I love it.

    Not when you use the bridge pup only. Very Tele sounding.
