No. 13-020509 Telstar "Lucky" Privately commissioned build. Sold to Mandy who says this: Jeez Ray, I've tried and tried but I just can't get a bad tone out of this guitar. It is solid gold all the way through. And although it's nice that I can feel smug about choosing the right pickups, I'm completely certain that the sheer depth of the whole playing experience is down to the quality of the build. It just makes me want to play!Thanks for everything Ray - I couldn't be happier! (Plus - she's SO pretty to look at.)
all the best Mandy

A very cool guitar - light and comfortable with a bright spanky tone The short scale [24.75"] gives a soft feel with 10-46 gauge strings
