Saw this upon the eBay this morning and it looks pretty interesting to me. I'm not really a Tele person but I am a sucker for unnecessary electronic additions. What are people's thought's?

I asked the guy for a bit more info and he said "The Mexican Tele was bought new from GAK. We went through the left handed Teles and selected it as it was the best finished one in stock. I then took it to Badlands Guitars who did the work. The Tele cones with a soft case."

An awful lot of money for a second hand Mexican tele that's been modded to fuck.

In his do an modds list he actually ends with "No expense spared" and "You'll never see another Tele like this" [lol] so it's clear what he's after.

If I were him I'd stick cheaper pickups in it and sell the BKP/Duncan stuff separately with high BINs they'd actually go for.

I don't think the mod is super-interesting, just a stratification, but with the middle humbucker is not too common.

However, considering lefty teles are hard to find...

Teh moddz aside, I clicked my tongue at the whole fuss about the thread until I realized that left-handed Nashville Telecasters don't actually exist.
