    Fret work looks a little dodgy. But the price seems reasonable enough to take a chance. Overall seems kind of cool.

    A 1000 bucks buys a lot of guitar on the used market these days, unless you're absolutely head over heels with the look I would pass. Politely of course. :)

    They are interesting looking Larry.
    I think that if it were I, I'd wanna test drive it first to check the playability before spending a G o it.

    Oh...I dont want it...just curious about the brand....
    If I was going to drop some cash on a boutique build, I would go with Echopark or Fano....and I agree $1000 can get me a lot of guitar...like another sweet Tele:);)

    I never heard of this brand. On first sight the guitar looks like an old Japanese or Italian made model.

    My honest, unfiltered opinion is that those look like hot garbage. Sure they might sell for 3K to some collector some where. Some things are "rare" for a reason, namely they aren't very good/successful and therefore not very many people bought them. I mean that fretwork just says it all.
