I like it. No experience with pine other than what I’ve read about it being super soft…

I had a pine telecaster built by Jason Hilbourne.  He's a really gifted luthier.   I have a killer Les Paul inspired custom he built that I'll die with.  The Tele sounded terribly shrill and the neck weighed down the body like a Firebird.  Just not my cup of tea.  They make model airplanes from Balsa...

Pine isn't bad when used for guitars, as long as it's HARD pine, not soft pine.  This article is a very good guide to pines in general, and hard pine in particular:

https://www.wood-database.com/pine-wood-an-overall-guide/

The 'hard' pines have a higher Janka rating for hardness than Alder, and close to if not harder than Korina.  Problem is, guitar makers don't usually publicize which  type of pine is used for their guitars, Fender is particularly bad about this.  They'll tell you if it's roasted pine, but which type of pine?  Good luck with that!  It makes me think that they either don't know or don't care.  <_<

BIG fan of the pickup/ bridge combo on this guitar. 

That guitar looks killer. Turtoise binding on the body would have been the icing on the cake.

Soft pine dings so, so easily….I’d have that thing relived unintentionally in 6 months….assuming it is soft pine. I had a soft pine Tele body that dented if you slalomed at it wrong…made from an old 70s waterbed…it was my first Tele and it sounded great.

Luckily, I never had to deal with him.  Paul was great, when I met him at Ace Music in Orlando back in the mid-eighties.  He brought Martin Barre with him!

Paul is one of the nicest guys you could ever meet.
