    My new Cole Clark 'Culprit III' semi-hollowbody tele arrived this morning, all Aussie made, Blackwood top, Maple fretboard, very much inspired by Kiko Loureiro's custom Tagima which he used on his 'Universo Inverso' fusion album...

    I've already got a Caparison Horus which is great for shredding, and is really ok for fusion as well, but this will be even better for the fusion stuff I feel, Brett Garsed, Guthrie Govan, Kiko Loureiro, Greg Howe, Scott Henderson etc. that kind of thing...

    Aaand now the pics!

    Looks great Dan (for a tele :heh:). At first when I saw the grain on the fretboard I got a little freaked out but then it appears to be a fretboard not one piece with the neck. Nice looking top wood. I have been wondering how these thinline semi's sound, must be pretty good, there is alot of them out there these days. My lower level Gretsch archtop has decent tone but some very undesirable harmonic resonance even at fairly low volumn levels, so there is some disappointment with that purchase.

    Cool looking guitar.

    What kind of bridge is that, not sure if I have seen one of those before? One thing what pops to my eye is that the string spacing is noticeably smaller between E and A strings than between other strings.

    It's just a standard 3-saddle tele bridge altered for the fact that it's got a humbucker in the bridge position rather than a single coil.

    The bridge is a Wilkinson, the pivkupd are their own design. I may end up replacing them along the track, I'll have to see how they go.
