Our favorite thing about this Ice Pink LsL T-Style is undoubtedly the fun factor. This ash bodied, dual-humbucker loaded T-Style is sporting a hotter pink finish w/a slight metallic sheen and a faux diamond encrusted 3-way switch tip. Strung with a fresh set of 9s, you simply can't help but smile, crank the amp, and go! (We can definitely picture Billy G slinging this one live...).
In addition to the fun vibe looks-wise, this is simply a fantastic T-style guitar (pros like Carl Verheyen play LsL's for a reason). The chunky V shaped maple neck is a highlight and the setup is spot on. We had no trouble with chord work or single note leads - this carve works beautifully for both (enough meat to dig in for bending, not so much that jazzier passages feel clumsy). Though we have it strung w/9s (meaning, it's super slinky), we have no doubt that slinky feel would carry over even when strung with heavier wires.
The LsL humbuckers work really well with the brass saddle / chopped Tele bridge combo. You get higher output, fatter mids, a touch more bass, but with that classic Tele snap and clarity. It still sounds a bit like a classic Tele, but with more muscle, body, and punch. You can split the pickups by pulling up on the tone control for a more conventional Tele sound, btw.
Condition: It's a relic, but there's no fret wear and it's close to new in this regard.
This is a really fun, great sounding Tele-style for those looking to buck convention. Priced with a hardshell case.
