I have one and will post photos soon. All I can tell you it's awesome. I'll explain a feature I love about it when I get the photos up.

They are sold by Musicians Wholesale America in Nashville, Tn. I would suppose they are an import, but you can contact them directly to find out? :hmm:

Here's my Delta. It's one of my favorites. Think Les Paul sound and sustain with a Strat Neck. To me that's a good thing because I have average sized hands and a standard Les Paul neck is to chunky for me.



Here's a look at the back. Here's an unusual feature, at least from what I know about Les Pauls.. The relief provided where the neck meets the body really helps with me reaching the upper frets. Didn't have much success with a standard Paul.





Found this rare bird complete with SD pickups. Playing it is infectious.

These guitars were made in Nashville, Tn. using foreign parts. They were only made for 3 years or so and I have heard the company went out of business because they sold the guitars too cheap. I sold a bunch of these back in 2005, they wholesaled for 650 and retailed for 899 or 999...
Very nice guitars, I have the LP in sunburst and an electric/acoustic with a built in lcd tuner. I never see them for sale and they cane be bought on ebay so I am thinking of selling mine.
Love the forum though this is my first post...

I know this is an old post but,
I've got one of these in a gold top model. I own two Gibson Les Pauls, one 2012 model studio and one '85 studio with a locking tremolo system and I have to say that the Delta out plays them both hands down. The pickups in this thing SCREAM, it's built solid as a rock also. The tuners are smooth as silk with no noise even being as old as it is. If you get a chance to grab one of these do it.

Thank you for this wonderful act of necromancy. I get to learn something new today.

I've recently picked up another gold top model. It's missing some minor parts and the pickups need potting. You can get these fairly cheap still, if you can find them. WELL worth the money.
