This excellent Telecaster features a White Blonde Heavy Relic Nitro finish over a lightweight, two piece Ash body. The one piece maple neck has 21 Sanko 6105 frets, a 9.5” radius with the Fender Custom Shop Nocaster “U” profile. Measurements are 0.860” at the first fret and 0.920” at the 12th fret. Pickups are the Hand-wired Twisted Tele in the neck and a Hand-wired 51 Nocaster in the bridge position. The guitar weighs an impressive 6.7lbs and feels perfectly balanced. The paint and ageing is exceptional, the guitar looks every part the well-loved 70-year-old guitar it’s based upon. The extra level of detail in the ageing process shows and that transfers into how the guitar feels in the hand. The hand-wound pickups sound great with all the classic Tele tones available. The flatpole Nocaster spec bridge pickup pairs excellently with the slightly hotter, Stratty Twisted Tele neck pickup.
With guitars of this quality it’s easy to see why the Custom Shop Masterbuilders are so highly regarded and have such a long wait time on pre-orders with some builders order sheets full. This guitar is in excellent condition with its original centre pocket Tweed G&G Case, bridge cover and certificate.
