I've had my eye on this for a while and got it in a very good trade deal - Hanson Gatto. I love the look, loved the feel when I picked it up - BEEFY neck!

Heck of a lot of fun so far. Tonally what you'd expect with a fairly thick slab of mahogany and a couple of vintage voiced 'buckers. I've been running through my Valve "Bimbo" (think plexi sounds) and ragging the shit out of it - so far, so good. No problems with the Bigsby, but then again I didn't expect any. The neck is by far the thickest in my arsenal - not quite boatlike, but very close and that's the biggest adjustment for me. It's very well finished, hardware is top-notch. The coil tap gets me into some nice single-coil goodness, especially when cleaning everything up at the amp. It's very comfortable on the strap and also seated. What you don't see on the photos (user error) is the subtle pearl finish, which frankly is very sweet to my eyes. I'll be gigging it next weekend.
Specs:
Body: Bound Mahogany
Neck: Set bound Mahogany
Fingerboard: Rosewood with Pearl Block markers
Scale: 24.75”
Frets: Medium Jumbo
Pickups: Hanson Classic Humbuckers w/ coil tap
Bridge: TonePros Tune-o-matic fixed bridge, large posts
Tail Piece: Bigsby “horse shoe” top mounted vibrato tail piece
Tuners: Enclosed full size
Controls: Vol, Master Tone (pull-for coil tap), 3-way Toggle

I like it! HNGD

I'd change those knobs though, they don't match. Other than that, it's beautiful!

The knobs look very fitting imo. Strange guitar, reminds me of Rickenbackers, but this has a certain groove to it. Really sexy and a unique of guitar.

Just admit that you're lazy like every guy during Movember.

On topic: HNGD! Never saw one of these before. I like the 'second' knobs better, but witch hats should make the guitar really shine, I think.

Tele knobs look nice.

Great looking ax man.

I don't think I've ever played anything in black walnut. It's a great ice cream flavor, so I assume it works well for a strat too.

The slugs in the pickups for telecasters are from old winchester rifles, which is why they sound so country.
