Richard did an introductory video of this on his channel along with other Gordon Smiths and I though the finish looked amazing, and being in the market for a tele I was sold.
I am not in anyway dissapointed with this guitar. The finish is wonderful and the guitar feels very well built. It seems to me that you get something pretty unique with each guitar, being hand built to spec. The neck on the guitar is so smooth, not too thick and not to thin. I find it very versatile as there is a huge difference between the neck and bridge pickups.
I have already gigged the guitar 3 times and it is holding up very well. The guitar has definetely benefited from a great setup as well. A very low action, and plays like butter. Cant recommend enough!
