    I know - this is MLP, not MFT.

    I have been itching for a tele recently. What are you thoughts on these odd guitars?

    Ah, a chance to post this photo I just took an hour ago! This is custom built by MLP member The Thruth. My first ever. I've had it for a while now, and I'm still on honeymoon. Should have gotten one long ago.

    Very nice River. If I get one I may need you to send me one of you stickers in the mail!

    So that is a Tele-copy? There must be a story there.

    Any LP fan should at the very least give a tele a chance. Two pickup, single-cut, versatile. I feel it's an LP's sister guitar.

    Yes, made to extremely accurate vintage specs down to the smallest parts and pickups. But the board is a 10-12 compound radius.

    All the detail you could want, and more, can be found here, including sound clips: http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/fender/80207-ngd-custom-blackguard-tele-mlp-luthier.html

    If you read through The Thruth's "Extreme Makeover" thread, you can see where the idea got started.
