    What I like about this new model is that it is thought provoking ! I want a "version" of one. I don't have a offset and I've still had a full life but this one has provoked a project for me :

    My version:
    tele neck
    hard tail string thru bridge
    no PG
    natural finish
    body mounted tele pickups ( GE Smith )
    tele control plate 4 way switch

    the beauty of this project is that I have everything but the body already - it will be my first Offset !

    Too much money for my liking. They have the same in black also.

    I like that shape. A lot.
    I think that a Jazzmaster body from GFS in unpainted poplar for $55 and some time with a belt sander and then some careful hand sanding could produce that shape. Or close enough, anyway.

    Hmmmmmmmmm.... Yet another project to file away in the back of my mind.
    Like I don't have enough in there already...

    Here's my stab at mocking a Burgundy Mist version with a Rosewood/Dots fretboard.
