I saw this come up for auction a couple of weeks ago on eBay and I fell in love with it. Although I recently pruchased a 25th Anniversary Tele which I really like a lot, I decided to try and win this one. I was successful and received it today.

It was built by master builder John Cruz in 2003. Apparently according to the seller there were 2 Teles and 2 Strats that were made in this 'Tiger Eye' quilted maple. (I am now on a quest to find the matching Strat! )

Although the guitar is 6 years old, it is in amazing shape and looks to have been played very little. I love the neck. Hope everyone likes it too!

God damn, people need to learn to resize their pictures.

And actually I hate to break it to you but I have seen a few Teles like that before, the guys over at Warmoth have made quite a few the same and/or similar to that.

But still, gorgeous guitar anyway.

Yes, I am a little disappointed about that and that was not detailed on the eBay description. I might have to send to fender to fix.

$2761 in a eBay auction.

These Fender Masterbuilts with exotic woods trade all over the place--here is an example fo a pretty cool looking strat that traded yesterday much higher than I thought (or hoped):

I have personally never seen one like it but I was shocked how high it went. . . the again, like some one said, it's more like a piece of art than a instrument.

I'm a huge Tele fan, but this really isn't my cup of tea at all. I'm sure it sounds amazing and whatnot, but it kind of looks too...pretty? Or prissy. Something like that. Tele's should be workhorses that you tune by dropping them.

But anyways, happy NGD, you seem rather smitten, so that's all that matters
