    2002 broadcaster style. An interesting touch is that it has flathead screws throughout too.

    2004 54' style strat (I took delivery of this one just before Scott got the "letter.") This guitar is stoopid light and has an incredible neck. Scott and I picked out the wood together. Think "cello-like" mids.

    2001? Purchased used from "fatback." T-style with braz rosewood fingerboard and a one piece ash body. This may be my favorite all around guitar. Scott tells me that the bridge pickup is voiced to sound like Led Zep 1. It kills!

    Great stuff you have there GeetarGoul!!! Is that the S that prompted you to sell your vintage Strat? I would love to hear that black T sometime.

    Here are a couple of mine. I also have a black ash S with a braz rosewood fingerboard.

    dzo- actually my first Lentz strat (which I sold duh!) was what prompted me to sell my 58 refin strat. I wish I had that one back too but the current lentz strat is quite a bit better than my first lentz S, so go figure...I'm doin' OK.

    yeah! Chuck's black Lentz T is a wonderful sounding guitar, like my Olympic White Lentz. Here is a pic of both of them.

    I still can't believe that I was able pick up the black tele used. It is such a killer guitar. It covers a lot of musical ground. From jazz to early Zep in a whizz!

    59burst, the body is ash. Simply the best sounding Tele I ever owned. Bridge PU is almost in the terretory of my 57'LP JR and
    Neck PU is smooth and warm. Played a lot of Scott's guitars and they are all fantastic, (own 4of them) but this one is the magic one.

    :eek:

    Those are some mighty fine looking git-fiddles!

    I'm seriously jonesing for a white blond/rosewood Tele (a la Mike Bloomfield), and the pic of yours is not doing anything to help! :)

    Do you play out anywhere here in the Bay Area?

    This old pic was from a little SF Lentz get together from last Feb. The Blond strat in the middle is now in England. The three-tone S belongs to Ron K, whose Radical House Studios we were meeting at.

    I've said it before, Lentz sprays one of the nicest finishes that I've ever seen. Absolutely georgeous.
