Anybody play one? Have clips of one?
I don't know of any shops around that have one for me to try out and the description of it really gets me excited.

The older models are even cooler. They came with Gretsch style TV Jones/Filtertron style pups. That's what I'm talkin about. Anyone have one? Post pics!
I have one. I agree with you about the pickups, wish they were a little hotter, but the guitar is cool none-the-less. The body's not really weight relieved as much as it's purposely chambered to give it an airey, almost semi-hollow body type of tone. Someone mentioned the neck being too thin, but I like,...I find the neck comfy to play on.Originally posted by dzeitlin
I've owned both. The Strat-o-sonic was pretty cool. The neck was thin and narrow, the pickups sounded great. A little thinner than P90s on a set neck mahagony. The Telesonic was a lot harder to warm up to. The pickups were VERY low output. I could have changed them, but the guitar was also pretty heavy, and they are supposedly weight relieved.
They made them in the late 90s or early 00s. They show up occasionally, but you gotta keep looking. I've even seen one in my local GCs used stock. I recently let one get away that I found on the web...regret that. Just like anything, you see them when you don't care; when you're gassin for one, you can't find it! Stay vigilant and patient. You'll eventually see one. Good luck! ACOriginally posted by pfflam
