    I would love to see a tele in Gretsch orange with the western inlays and an F brand on the body.

    Mojo, those look nice, but what you and I think of when someone says "western" just ain't the same. :)

    Those are very cool mojo! I was just doing a Kisekae mockup of a White Falcon and Black Falcon Tele the other day for a possible RS Guitarworks project sometime in 2010. I got the itch again!
