That's a handsome ax buddy. Action looks pretty good. How's the intonation? Don't remember ever seeing a tobacco burst Telly. Looks really sweet.
The action is good, not lay flat barely touch the string kind, but somewhere closer to a perfectly set up acoustic.
The tone is cool! Very open sounding, and full 'after tones' that seem to hang long after a string is struck.
Plays well all the way through the 12th fret, which is about as far as I go!
I've always liked a black burst on a dark background. This is very late '50s looking and feeling; except with the chambered body it only weighs 5 lbs 13 oz. The body weighed in at 2 lbs 12.6 oz !
Very happy with the end product!
