    I'm thinking a guitar with a roasted finish.

    Aaaaaaand it’s here.

    If you think I’m on a Tele kick.......you’re right. :)

    I will also say that if you are a Tele guy or gal but have not tried the Brad Paisley Signature Telecaster, then you are missing out. This guitar is 5.5lbs(!)with a nice fat soft V neck and incredible pickups. There’s nothing more to ask for. It’s incredible. OH - I did immediately replace the paisley pickguard(cause I’m not Brad Paisley)with an aged white guard.

    Beautiful Tony! I've been on a serious Tele (thinline) kick myself the past year. Very happy for you. Love to hear it in a clip! :- )

    Congrats and nice. I like the aged white and silver combo.

    I didn’t know they used spruce and bologna in today’s guitars. Whatever works I guess at 5.5 lbs. ;)

    I was SUPER on the fence between this and one of the new Fender Vintera Thinlines in red.....! But, I kept picking this up various places and just couldn’t believe how great they felt and sounded......

    Congrats on the sweet new axe, she's a beauty. She's no Cort, to be sure, but still pretty nice. Enjoy!

    These are awesome, congrats Tony!

    I almost grabbed one but that worn sparkle needs to be touched up first :)

    That's very interesting to me. I've been working with spruce lately in a non-guitar related project and of course my mind is all guitars while I'm at it.
    Planning on building a few spruce telecaster bodies over at my buddies workshop next year. I remember that Eric Johnson's Stratocaster, Virginia, was a spruce body.
    If it's good enough for Mr. Bat-Ears...

    Nobody's going to lose you on stage, Tony. You'll dazzle 'em!

    Congrats on your new Tele!

    That is a beauty! I do like the stock pick guard too, but it does look great your way.

    I've never played or heard one of these. The weight sounds awesome. What pickups do they put in them?

    I'd say yes to a video clip too. Partly because I'd love to hear it, but also partly because I really enjoy your playing and vids.
