    For all of the great pictures people post, these are the best. For me it's how it looks when it's being played. (The Hamer headstock is a perfect example of something that looks stupid until someone's playing it and the neck is pointing right at you.)

    I used to think the new Lentz was ugly, but I was wrong. The headstock and body go together smashingly.

    Red is a wonderful player, and the blue Lentz that I played was fabulous!

    They're Lentz pups ...Scott winds 'em himself :dude
    They're Scotts version of "T" style pups...
    the other "new Lentz" designs have L-90's that Scott designed from the ground up :)

    Oh and here's a pix of Cindy Cashdollar

    I was playing my Lentz unplugged yesterday, man what a huge bass response, it really sings. Just what the single coils want.

    Cindy sure looks better than Redd! Cashdollar is a great name. It can't be her real last name.

    Remember Burl Ives? Redd looks like he could be his son. You don't get more blue collar looking than Redd. Son of a gun can play a geetar! Don't really matter what make/type he plays.

  15. I went to SXSW in Austin this year for the first time. Caught Redd several times, and he is one awesome Tele picker! You're right about his hands, they're huge... he had a hat on most of that week that made him look like Bluto from the Popeye cartoons...

    I didn't see Cindy Cashdollar, but did catch Carolyln Wonderland, awesome singer/guitarist with a great stage name...
