    Well, Sean did it again. I asked for a killer, lightweight, big neck, bad ass esquire-type guitar. He told me his ideas and ran with it. This thing sounds KILLER! Fat Budz bridge pickup tone, highly resonant, lots of sustain and bloom. Feels like I stepped back in time a few decades.

    Swamp ash, very light. Sean worked the neck hard. It is perfectly rolled and there are zero buzzes or dead spots. Chords are huge and single notes ring out. The neck is beastly, but highly playable.

    I've got a '52 T-type from Sean and they are one of the best bargains to be had for this type of guitar.

    CONGRATS! :AOK

    Those Budz pups are killer. The guitar looks great. I like those fat maple necks. Im glad to see the old world guitars are doing well for Sean.

    I used it today for rehearsals. Man, it rips and the action is as good as it gets! I LOVE that big neck.
