I just got this really cool tele variant over the New Years weekend!

Here are links to tl;dr threads from the Reverend Discussion Page about the build from Steve's (the builder) and my own perspective. I met Steve through our mutual appreciation for all things Reverend. The builder thread is full of cool build pics, most of which I received from him along the way.

But for now, just a few specs and some pics! This guitar was inspired by and named after Grace, my wife of 22 years.

*Tummy cut and contoured neck heel
*Maple cap
*Cream binding
*Coral pink finish
*Bigsby and Mastery bridge
*Peter Florence pickups, Dano set

*Rosewood fretboard

*Tilted headstock with volute and veneer accents

Wow. that guitar oozes cool. Coral pink is a great guitar color.

This video is the grand reveal, followed by me playing my Gracie and the other version Steve built. It takes place at his place in Golden, CO. These guitars deserve a much better demo, but I had a blast doing it! I plan to have a friend who is a much better player than put her to work this weekend.
