2019 LSL Instruments Tele-Style "Bonnibelle" Electric Guitar

LSL Instruments are quality "copycat" builds, made in the US, and play and sound quite a bit like "the oldies." This one is a Tele-style guitar with what feels like a chambered body (it's about 6 1/2 lbs) and it has traditional, Tele-style pickups. It's got a "light relic" finish so it feels a little pre-worn-in and, post-setup, it plays like a champ and sounds quite a bit like any number of the vintage Teles I've handled in the shop.

The top is figured maple and it has figured maple binding on the top edge, too. The back appears to be mildly-figured alder but I'm not 100% on that. It has retro-style fittings and hardware and the tortoise pickguard has a complex pattern on it that looks pretty cool juxtaposed with the also-complex figure and sunburst finish of the top.

Repairs included: setup, saddle adjustments, light cleaning.
