This is a truly fantastic American-made Telecaster built with all top-of-the-line parts. A perfect instrument for a working musician who wants the most versatile guitar w/ some character and custom twist.
Here are the most important things you need to know: I've been playing guitar for the last 30 years, modifying them for the last 25 years, building them for the last 10 years. I built this one for myself in 2011/2012, and it is one of the best guitars I have ever played. Each and every part was carefully selected and is there for a reason. It's hard to find a more versatile Tele that would sound and feel this good. I have tried multiple pickups, necks and bridges until the ones that sound perfect were selected.
Body: Warmoth, USA, Fender Lis., Standard Telecaster, Swamp Ash, Neon Chartreuse
Neck: Musikraft, USA, Fender Lis., Mahogany with Ebony fingerboard, Nitro finish, self-lubricating TUSQ nut, Large headstock
Bridge pickup: Joe Barden HB Two/Tone (USA) - a fantastic dual-mode pickup: allows you to switch between a full humbucker and *hum-free* Danny Gatton Telecaster tones.
Neck pickup: Railhammer Gnarly 90 pickup - absolutely the best mix between a P-90 style pickup and a Tele neck, lots of character and tone!
Bridge: American Fender Hardtail bridge, USA
Tuners: Sperzel USA, locking
Pickguard: Custom made in the USA by Jeannie Pickguards, "bright orange cone"
Neck Plate: Fender Telecaster 60 years, USA
Control Plate: provides three positions plus two additional tones when the bridge pickup is in the "Danny Gatton mode" (push/pull on the tone pot). Best available components, professional soldering.
The guitar plays and feels GREAT! Stays in tune perfectly fine, the neck is super-comfy and true. There are some signs of use here and there but nothing significant. I was planning to keep this one for myself but have to part with it due to some (hopefully) temporary financial issues. No hard feelings though, I hope the baby finds a new loving owner. I will pack well and ship fast.
