    I have one ordered. Once here, I will give the full rundown of fit and finish!
    It will be tuned in GDAE.

    I've got to admit, as a lover of acoustic instruments, that this is very cool.
    I want one!

    I play my Eastwood Mando almost every week and want to see how this fits for some of the more up tempo stuff we do at the beginning of each set. I'm also very curious to see how the P90s sound as well.

    I need another tenor like a hole in the head but they got those colors EXACTLY RIGHT. Headstock logo looks great, too.

    Yeah for me that is definitely a tempting tenor. My two favorite guitars (a ‘68 LP and a Hamer Artist) both have P90s. I love the P90 punch. Hope you receive a primo example!
    Blow on, man.

    It's not one of their current production models (like the Warren Ellis Tenor or the Classic Tenor), it's a custom shop project. Enough people had to commit to getting one (crowdsource funding like GoFundMe) in order for them to get built. I'm not sure where that leaves people who want to get one now. Even though it says it ended in March (or that is when it was fulled funded) it looks like you can still "Support" the project and get one for $599?

    23" scale is almost full LP scale length of 24 3/4" The body size must be almost (or exactly?) full size.

    The good news: I have a box!
    The bad news: I have about 3 hours before I get to open said box.

    Alright, got the box open! It is gorgeous... Not yellow, but gorgeous!
    The packaging for shipping was outer box, padding, inner box, padded gig bag, soft foam wrap, guitar.
    The cherry color has more depth to it than the pictures I had seen show.
    The silly thing, after travelling from Illinois to oergon was in tune. Seriously! It was in tune.
    Set up is really good, just need to move the pickups a touch closer to the strings.

    Now, as to reaching chords, I get to learn some new technique as I am not used to that much each and my stubby fingers are, well, stubby.
    I will plug it in tomorrow when it isn't 10pm.

    Just ran the LP through its paces on my Vox modeling amp. First thing? Those P90s are sooooooo much hotter than what is on any of my other instruments!
    As to the tone? Very cool, rich and varied depending on what pick up you are using. This is going to be fun! The set up is 99% where I want it out of the box... minor things to do per taste.
    I would highly recommend one if you are thinking of going with a solid body that isn't out of a custom shop!
