    Double Neck spin guitar... spin and swap the guitar's neck in use. Careful not hit one of the headstocks on the ground when doing so... for the shredder in us, it could used as an helicopter...

    IDK, it almost works. It's like they almost made a really cool MAB sig, and almost made an actually cool doubleneck, almost made a twelve string electric, almost made a flying-Z, almost placed the controls in a not-stupid way, ...almost.

    I love that it has the ZZ-Top-style rotating guitar strap attachment point in the middle. I'm officially back on-board. :lol:

    Most of them are obvious from a mile away, but there's nothing worse than seeing an almost amazing Custom Shop pop up for sale and realizing it's been Pablo'd and ruined.

    I imagine it's still a bolt-on and 25.5" scale length, no?

    It's just a Tele Deluxe with a different wood combo and bridge.

    Same neck, same electronics.

    But, considering that "Les Paul, but a Telecaster" has been a Fender Custom Shop staple for years, I'm actually kind of surprised this didn't come out sooner.

    I like how they recycled other Fender stuff into it, like the Cabronita guard and Jazzmaster knobs.

    Meh, the Lespaulocaster looks pretty much like other guitars before it to me.

    Very true.

    But this is the closest actual Fender to a Les Paul without paying Custom Shop prices.

    The whole series is basically Fender CS stuff and boutique clones for fraction of the prices.

    I'm not really into this stuff, but a bunch of folks are.

    I actually came here to post this one. At least one can't blame Jeff on it. He spotted it in a walkthrough video when it was hanging in drying racks outside the paint booths, and when he saw it, he asked, "Huh...I didn't even know we offered to do that", or something to that effect....however he actually said it made it sound like he wasn't too into it. :lol:

    I do believe this is only the 2nd (maaaaaybe the third) neck-pickup-only I've seen some out of their shop.

    This one being the only other one i remember off the top of my head, which is their SH550...I think it could be OK if it still had the F-holes, but they went with the "no f-hole" option. Hmm...

    It's almost impressive how someone managed to mis-match every single color on that guitar. Orange, green, black hardware, cream pickup, AND a maple board?!?! Holy hell.
