I’ve got one of these on my Christmas list now!
It’s that time of year: What to get the hard-to-buy-for guitar lover without making a major investment. If the guitar lovers on your list happen to be Fender Stratocaster, Telecaster, Jazz Bass or Precision Bass fans, a die-cast company called GMP may have the answers. GMP, based in Georgia (U.S.), makes a line of officially licensed 1:3-scale guitar replicas that feature a real wood neck contoured to match the replicated guitar, an accurately contoured die-cast body, wood grain details, moveable pickup selector switch, volume and tone controls, accurately scaled steel strings and a moveable tremolo arm (Stratocaster model only).
There are nine replicas to choose from: Stratocaster in red, black or sunburst; Telecaster in red, sunburst or butterscotch blonde; Jazz Bass in black or sunburst; and Precision Bass in olympic white.
