    What seemed like a week ago I received this guitar. But it seems like the color has lightened throughout the week.

    Did it get aged that quick? Wow that is quite a difference.

  3. Have you been hitting the virus juice? There not the same heads. Maybe the guitar fairy came by and switched them. Which is all explained by hitting the virus juice. Dont worry, my wife hits it every night. She now confuses me with the dog. I am easily a hundred pounds heavier

    Maybe it was a virus thing.

    Those are really cool!
    Which bridge pickup do you prefer? Are they both the same wood?

    Water it well, the grain us changing so maybe the wood is still growing too. Maybe you can feed it more finish to eat.

    lol... will have to for sure. Lessons learned from a true classic of a movie.


    Btw, next up is two hard cases. The Stock Fender soft case is ridiculous and really a bag with no insulation. They are temporarily residing in two soft Vox cases I had laying around that are better padded.

    Thanks. The left is mahogany and the right is Korina. The Korina one is a nice medium weight at 8 lbs 2 oz (some out there are over 9 lbs). They both have mahogany necks. I can see them both having their place and time. Obviously the Tele bridge offers a bit more bite and twang in the bridge.

    Beautiful guitars! I really like that offset meets telecaster design.

    So which one is your favorite? ;):D
