    The thread about guitars you’ve always wanted........it got me thinking. I’ve had a lot of the guitars I’ve wanted by now.....all the usual suspects.........but I’ve never had an Ernie Ball Music Man Albert Lee and I’ve always really wanted one!! A Strat and a Tele in one, with a silent circuit for no hum......perfecto!



    Behold in her metallic white glory:

    WOW!!! Never seen one… do they have a B-bender? Really nice one way or the other.

    Edit: Looked them up and no; missed the whammy bar socket in my haste looking at the photos. :p

    The Strat connection isn't hard to see, but what makes it Tele-esque?

    A bit of the shape, and it has a Tele bridge pickup.

    I would never have guessed it was one of those. I have seen many Musicman guitars on Music store walls in the UK but I've never tried one.

    I've only ever seen red ones and thought they looked a bit odd somehow. But in white -- very handsome. And I bet that neck feels good.

    I played one of these when they first came out and got to meet Albert Lee at NAMM one year. It was too George Jetson for me, but I do remember it played REALLY nicely. Congrats!
