    I am a tele guy. All day. Been swapping and trading looking for something that sticks.

    Just got this in today. Veritas Texas Miracle Pro Line. These are made small batch by the same Korean shop that makes reverends. That being said, this feels just like a Reverend, which is not a bad thing at all.

    Sounds great too! Although the neck is a little thinner than i like, but the width and string spacing feels very similar to a PRS Wide/Thin Neck. Quality parts and pickups. Just needed a setup.

    We will see how it fairs in the weeks to come!

    Very purty! Reverends are solid guitars so I assume this one will be too.

    Congrats. I understand for Reverend, woodwork is done in Korea, but everything after is done in Michigan - similar to the Duesenberg model but more transparent. Is this guitar completely built in Korea?

    Yup! Built and then assembled and set up by veritas here in the states.

    Umm, no. They are shipped to Reverend as completed guitars. They unbox them and set them up before shipping them out.

    It looks pretty groovy. The coin in the headstock is an original idea. I’m not surprised as when I was there most of the military had challenge coins easily made out in town. The headstock shape sort of reminds me of a G&L if someone broke part of the point off.

    This is as they come in from the truck:

    Then they are individually set up, this was the setup station when they were in Michigan (they moved to Ohio for whatever reason).

    The setup guy personally signs the back of the headstock when he's done and they get ready for shipment.

    They used to make the bodies there and just import the necks until they discovered the ones that Korea made were better and more cost effective. Here's the original body shape.

    Visiting the Veritas website looks like they offer three guitar lines. What they call Custom Shop, Craftsman, and Pro Line. When clicking on each only the Pro Line brings up the Korea thing pasted below. I’m thinking most of it is assembled in Korea and they may do one final step. And the other guitar lines built in the Washington. But regardless of where it’s built or assembled, it looks like a really cool Tele.

    Nice, as a long time Reverend fan and player, I am sure youll be pleased with the Veritas, I think the headstocks are awesome with that "coin" embedded.
