If by "showroom" you mean my backyard, and by "a monkey to play the bongos all day" you mean me, you're both right on!!!

Way to go, Doug! What beautiful art on the guitars too! Congratulations on a great project.... I knew those Fender guys were alright too! My '52 Reissue tele is my main guitar, so there you have a great product with great artwork on it. Now we just have to find out what Holden has up his sleeve!

Wow, Doug! Outstanding! Congrats on boosting our genre in the music industry. Maybe I missed it, but how many of these jewels will be produced?

Thanks everyone for the comments I really appreciate it.

Ron, Hank and Holden, my tallness is all done with smoke and mirrors, I'm actually the size of Mini Me. Take a picture at just the right angle and you'll see.

Aaron, last I heard Ron said 600 of each guitar. Not set in stone I'm sure.

Ron, we all have to take a field trip down the the Kon Tiki in Tucson and you can see BambooBens handy work.

Below is a better image of the Monkey Business piece.

That is incredible work and a very cool promotional/instrument.

Bob Benedetto, who was working with Fender for a while, has been here at the Lagoon Lounge a few times, once with tikiconvert, and mentioned that there were a few tiki-freaks at Fender.

I had no idea. Wow.

Hey Doug...I've been to the Kon Tiki, and Ben's work is AMAZING...And, the drinks weren't bad either!

Now on to more pedestrian matters! The Tiki guitars are going to be released one per quarter, 600 pieces per design. MSRP on the guitars will be approximately $575, and should be available nationwide...More details on that to follow. If TC-ites desire, I can put up a link later to a site that will have participating dealers, making them easier to find.

Anyway, I'll post photos later in the week of the display with the Tiki-coustics. Thanks to Holden W. for sending me out a bevy of Tiki display items for use in our display. Hey, it's gotta be right!

And "Sperm Whale"...I'll be around on Saturday, please say hello when you stop by!

Mahalo...

fendertiki...Aka Ron K.
