Hey guys,

Have any of you heard of these guitars before? Ian A. Guitars in San Diego. What do you guys think? It's Les Paul construction in a Telecaster shape. I kind of like them myself.

The original Peavey Odyssey was kind of like that:



I have one myself. The shape is a little more tapered than a Tele, the way a Paul is. I think that helps the look.

It looks like a pretty guitar. What scale is it? Personally, I would go for a hybrid along these lines:

Great looking guitar. I thought it was a G&L at first, minus the headstock. I read the specs but it does not mention the fretboard radius.

That "Dumble-screen you first" attitude seems to be contagious. All I can say is business must be good.
Still...nice looking guitar....

Here is a similar model from another luthier. This one was made by Valery Vaschenko. Johan Gustavsson also makes a blend - 59 Bluesmaster. They are very nice blends of 2 great guitars!
