Ah, ShucksA few comments from some of our new friends
Now that I've had some time to sit back with the Old Stockdale, I wanted to tell you I am really falling in love with it. I've been playing it non stop. It feels great to play. The sound has been just what I was looking for in a body that feels completely comfortable to me. Tonight my band's going to a little studio date, and I'm looking forward to surprising the boys with my new instrument.
I saw on your website that you were requesting videos of people playing your guitars so I made one. I don't have a lot of youtube experience or any proper video equipment, but I tried to make one as complementary to you as I could:
Hope you like it! -Brice Henry
Guitar arrived in perfect shape, excellent packing box...everyone should use these! No packing mess to clean up, and it protects the guitar perfectly. Unbelievable quality for the price, light weight, fast neck, flawless finish, great sounding pickups. My first Berger was a 2012 green La Cresta SFC#2, My second was a drop dead beautiful gold 2016 La Cresta Deluxe GT. Now, this black "Little Joe". I now have my eyes set on a Rodeo King (as soon as I can save up the small amount he's asking).
THIS GUITAR. ! Every single thing I wanted AND hope for. Tone. Tremolo. Ebony board. The humbuckers. THE FINISH! People go crazy when they see it. Such an amazing price.
I'll be posting a video review shortly on YouTube but in the mean time I am so pleased to thank PT Berger for his work. Great great guitar AND at huge value. I'll definitely be buying more of Paul's guitars!!!

First, thanks for the gig-bag, that was very thoughtful of you to include. It's almost as beautiful as the guitar and compliments
Excellent fret work on the Berger. Next to my dad's two teles: the Olde Stockdale tapers in more in the middle of the body and overall the curves look more accentuated to me. BTW, I just made my dad sooooo jealous. His tele "blacktop" and his other tele can't touch my Bakersfield. Told him to sell both his Fenders and buy some of your guitars off ebay. Played the Bakersfield with the Mustang III amp I got my father for Christmas, sounded great.
The axe is super light and balance in my hands and on a strap. I could play the guitar for hours, oh wait, I did! I literally started playing again for the first time in three years about three weeks ago so my hands are so sore right now but it's a good sore. The thing really sounds (metaphorically speaking of course) like a thinline tele and a Gibson 335 got drunk at a bar together one night and the resulting one night stand resulted in this awesome sounding axe : D. Wow, the hardware, gorgeous...the gold works so well on the Bakersfield. Excellent job on the pick-up and I'm not easily impressed when it comes to pick-up sound and tone. Running through a vintage Harmon Kardon 40-watt PA tube amp that's been custom modded into a two channel bass/guitar amp, with a touch of verb (or tremolo) and delay, pushing a vintage 15" speaker, sweet mercy the axe sounded lovely. I can get 60's - 70s Buddy Guy tone, BB, Son Seals, Johnny Guitar Watson, and my own thing with ease with the set up of the Bakersfield, a few stompers (eq pedal, always) and my HK amp. I know you designed this axe with the jazz cat in mind and my heavily BB/Gatemouth Brown/Guitar Watson influenced playing used it to those ends but equally my Son Seals/Jimmy Page/Hubert Sumlin influenced playing self turned up the gain on the HK and let er' rip. This guitar was meant for playing "Kashmir" as it handles the atonal qualities of DADGAD tuning very well. I've used several turnings and they all sounded great on the guitar. I finger and flat pick, often alternating often within a song. The Olde Stockdale is already my second favorite axe I've ever played utilizing this playing technique.
So to sum up, I'm exhausted from playing from about 7:00 pm to 3:30 am. I'm elated with my purchase. I'm glad I didn't have a job to do last night so I had the time to spend with my new best friend. Can you make five more? Joking...well, kind of. I'd love to be able to give one of these guitars to my dear friend Sol Creech. His Nashville type Tele (three single coil PU model) has failed on him once or twice before or during a gig and he doesn't carry a back up electric (he only has one other, an Epi 335 knock off) often enough to gigs.
Again, thanks so much Paul. I look forward to doing much more business; and hopefully even a video collaboration with you.
