    I had a little time to kill before work today, so I hit up the GC down the road. They had this in the “You can’t afford it” section :) I sat and played it for far too long, and was late for work today (oops) Anyway it’s Fender-branded, apparently all Mahogany (the neck is quite nice) and obviously sports a P90 neck pup. This pushes ALL my buttons! If the neck was bigger, I might have done something stupid, and have to move into my van for a while... It was being sold as “new” but there were lots of suspicious scratches on the pickguard and P90 cover... not that I could afford it, in any case. I may go back on Monday to see if it’s still there...
    In Squier news, they had a SQ Strat (actually marked as an 83, MIJ, “SQ serial” Strat. It had the 3-bolt neck and BIG headstock, and looked every minute of its age. And was marked at $599! Uhh... What is it with GC and their used prices?
    They had ONE Squier offset, and it weighted a good 2 pounds more than the guitar I posted above. And the neck was really skinny.

    I also meant to say, I’ll be first in line to buy one, if Squier releases an offset Tele.

    Is that one of the parallel universe getups?
    I think the Meteora Tele is really cool.

    That is dangerously close to a Telebird, which pushes a lot of my buttons.

    That's a 2018 Mahogany Offset Telecaster, MIJ, apparently limited. People have been RAVING about them over at TDPRI and thegearpage. $799 new.

    I haven't seen one in the wild yet.

    Yeah, I had to look it up. It was marked $800 at the store, but no case or hang tags. (And really scratched up...hmm) I wonder if someone bought it the moment they came out, traded it recently and the store is trying to pass it off as “new”...
    I had to go check out bodies on the bay, I could get one there and add it to my project pile... but I wouldn’t have it finished for, like, 5 years :(
