    Wow that is super sexy. The pink-purple burst looks a lot like the color/finish that ESP USA offers. I think they call it cranberry burst.

    I'm actively looking for one of these 2, Ibanez S5527 (preference) and S5427... if for any instance someone spots one please tell.

    I have no self-control. I placed an order for the M-Black Metal I posted on the last page and I'm getting it in a week. I am pumped.

    Ah I can deal with that, but how has it become so commonplace to break a patterned inlay across the full board with some arbitrary design at the 12th? Kiiiiiilllin' me here.

    This. Mate of mine has decided it’s not for him, seriously considering pulling the trigger on it so I can actually have a back up for my 2027XL live.

    I'm 2/3 of the way there. ;)

    And I think I'll pull the trigger on the Gamma next Christmas.

    You NEED the SD80 (Pre-Peavey). It is legit insane how loud it gets and it truly does everything from cleans to metal. I don't know how it gets overlooked as a great amp.

    Same here. BTW (not vintage at all) but have you tried the American Elite series with the compound radius fretboard? I barely resisted the temptation of buying one, but I'd put it up against any Suhr or PRS. It played like... well... an Elite American guitar. lol

    Incoming long-form post?

    I really like Tele's, even though I've never owned, nor played, one. So, all of the following can be taken as completely superficial.

    In the realm of teles, I tend to like more the classic designs with slight modern accoutrements, which is mainly just an elbow contour and thinner body.

    And as fate would have it, this week has been pretty rife with tele content that meets my preferences.

    ESP Custom Throbber

    Of course, I have to start with ESP. This popped up on the ESP Tech House IG. I really like the minimalism on this one. However, the Throbber is pretty hit or miss for me really. The current one has that pick guard that is way too flamboyant for me. Concerning the production end ones, the only color I like is the Olive green one.

    Dragonfly HI TEE Custom & 666 Custom

    More Japan content, I post about Dragonfly pretty often (mostly the Sottile 666, and occasionally the Border). I don't see HI TEEs very often. This popped up on the Dragonfly (Harry's Engineering) IG. Gold is not my thing, but I like the way this came out. They make a 666 version with a pretty classic design. I would prefer 22 frets though. They also make a HI STA (strat) for those interested in that.

    ESP USA TE-II

    Still not burl girl, but this Dark Horse TE-II is neat. The black ink infusion is cool. I like the simplicity of the USA tele. Besides the natural open grain ash, this blueberry/faded blue one is probably my fave at the moment. I think the blue could be a little lighter/faded though. But, mostly the exact guitar I'd get from ESP USA if possible. It's probably the exact Tele I'd get period (but with a dark wood neck).

    Wirebird Contour IV

    The Wirebird is the best all around modern classic tele to me. The thin body makes me think it'd probably feel like my ESP Horizon Custom or my ESP VP-SL7 (the green one). I'm not sure there's anything I dislike about the Contour IV. If there is ever a new guitar in my future, a Wirebird near the very top. I'd say probably between ESP Custom and ESP USA.

    [​IMG]

    As an aside to those interested in boutique Japanese guitars specifically, some good places to check out are Dolphin Guitars and Bottom's Up Guitars . I discovered Dragonfly through Dir En Grey (Kaoru has one for studio use), but the aforementioned places tend to have things like Dragonfly and other cool brands like Nishgaki Guitars, Altero Guitars, T's Guitars, and Xotic.

    Tootles!

    FYI, this is the best Japanese-made Tele I've played:
