    Pair of P90s and that would be sweet!

    Same here. Kind of like a Gretsch version of a plank LP Jr, but with a bolt on neck.

    I just keep looking at it.

    Exactly!
    I was thinking about a B6, a single bridge Dynasonic and a Corvette-like shaped pickguard to cover the other pickup hole.
    And then play some twangy Johnny Thunders :)

    I'm dreaming P90's too, or maybe a pair of TV Powertrons?

    I think I need the white one;). I'm sure it would bring out my inner Leslie West!

    No thanks for me Rich - the natural timber finish is the only thing I like about it.
    Electromatic is the cheapest guitar I own :p

    I must get one. Maybe a birthday present to myself. I really like the Golddust version.

    I sense great vulnerability. A land child crying out for love, an innocent orphan in the post-modern world.
    I see a parasite.
    A sexually-depraved miscreant, who is seeking to gratify only its most basic and immediate urges.
    It is struggled, it is man-struggled. It lifts my spirit!
    It is a loathsome, offensive brute, yet I can't look away.
    It transcends time and space.
    It sickens me.
    I love it.
    Me too.

    Well, we've made our decision. We want "The Streamliner Jet."

    :p

    I like it - It looks kinda like a Telecaster to me.

    Funny that you say that. To me it has the LP Jr vibe going on, but, after a few seconds of pondering that thought, the Tele does come to my mind.

    Hmmm, I have a nice "plank" now.

    They probably would get along well though? Dang it. Lol

    Just pointing out it's probably a poor investment, the result however could be really cool and better than a $1000 guitar from elsewhere.
