Thanks, glad you like it!

It's a LsL, and would you believe I found it used at a Guitar Center?

Unlike Fender, who used actual fabric, they do it with a special flatbed inkjet printer... They put down the white coat, print the paisley, then add the black burst...

And...

They sneak in tiny little LsL logos into the pattern... So far I've found 6...

Cosmin,

www.lslinstruments.com

They're a small builder in California, making vintage style Tele and Strat guitars, plus some other models. All hand made, hand carved necks, as well as winding their own pickups.

I never could have afforded one unless I had found this one used, at an amazing price, but it's way cheaper than Fender Custom Shop...

Very faithful to vintage sound and feel... Nitro finish with a light relic, it's absolutely a dream to play and sounds fantastic! Not a shredder by any means, but perfect for blues and r&b.

Also, this one is made of pine for the body (unlike the typical ash or alder), like a lot of the early Tele's were, and it still has all the twang and "spank" without any harshness in the high end.

I'd highly recommend checking them out if you're looking for a hand built, vintage style guitar, at a reasonable price.

Oh, and each one they build is named, after a woman.

Mine is "Silver" (although I've never met a woman with that name!) but I think it's perfect.

David

Superb! I think that giving a guitar a personality is by far one of the nicest things to do smile.gif It's like a warrior's sword! It bears a name and a history!

I will most definitely check'em out!

Very nice guitar! It looks very original. I'm planning to get a tele in the future, and one of the possibilities is to get one from a luthier that handmade beautiful guitars here.

Cosmin,

They hand wind their own pickups, single coils voiced like vintage Tele, and they sounds great!

Thank you man smile.gif I just checked upstairs in the thread and you mentioned it already biggrin.gif I am getting old ... But I was curious if they are not collaborating with some well known pickup manufacturer such as Bareknuckle, for instance.

Now that I got the deal with PRS, I will have to stick to those and buying another guitar which I can't use onstage, is a bit of an overkill and my wallet is not at all that fat... I am planning to get one which is as close as possible to a Tele, in respect to the sound smile.gif So, maple neck and single coils are the prerequisites.
