    I take it these are mad money? I was designing a small bodied Tele with a lopped-off horn, and here Rick has already done it and filled it with NYC mojo.

    Rick is an old school artist, craftsman and stand up guy.
    I had a Bowery Tele built a couple of years ago for around $1200.
    Even now his teles may be in the $1400-$1800 range, strats around $2200.
    Sweet tone, they sing!

    Yeah he's upped the price to around $1800 now.

    The thing is that he does things at his pace, which can be REALLY slow. A couple of people have waited in the 2 year time frame, though generally he takes less time than that.

    His guitars are AMAZING!

    Here's mine. I solo around 5:20 but check out the whole thing. The singer and band are pretty good. ;)
