5034-TFT Rancher Dreadnought

Depending on who you ask, opinions on the 5034-TFT land anywhere from "that's interesting" to "What were they possibly thinking?"

Opinions aside, it's definitely one of the more unusual guitars you're likely to run into, mating a Rancher flattop hollow body to a FilterTron and Bigsby.

So how does it work? Well, better than you'd expect. Acoustically it's pretty thin, probably due the big hunks of metal hanging on the flat top, but plug it in and it has a very pleasant sound to it. And thanks to some clever boxing and shielding around the pickup, it doesn't really feed back, at least at reasonable volumes.

So all weirdness aside, it actually makes a lot of sense for quieter gigs and recording.

And you'll definitely get people's attention.
