This Guitar is Light! This Guitar is Pure! This Guitar is Green! And what a glorious Sherwood Metallic Green she is. Everything about this instrument is fantastic if you are looking for a purists Tele with the most pure bare-knuckled 1960's tone. The Neck Pickup is a startling example of what a tele can do. The Bridge pickup barks and screams when you push her and can play smooth and nice when laid off. Everyone in the shop absolutely loves this guitar. The roasted neck is not only gorgeous and perfect to the hand but also adds a tonal color to the mix letting in just the right amount of warmth to this lean tone machine.
She comes in at 7.1 pounds and is light light light!

The touch sensitivity is very apparent in the neck pickup and we loved how easily we could go from a classic tele tone to a bare knuckled sound in no time. All it takes is a different attack to the strings and it feels like a different instrument. From cleans to dirt this pickup is outstanding! The Bridge is a monster all onto herself. The growl is there as is the sparkling tele chime. Again, this is a very tactile pickup that can bend easily to each user. 

A thrilling instrument this Telecaster is. A purists guitar and a true example of what the Fender Custom Shop can do like no other!
