NAMM SHOW LTD 1960 HS Fender Custom Shop Telecaster Custom Aged Olympic White Over 3TSB

Here's another another guitar we absolutely fell in love with at NAMM 2020. This telecaster custom packs plenty of bark and bite with the combination of a Handwound Texas Special in the bridge and a Seymour Duncan SH-55 Seth Lover in the neck. The pairing of those pickups work so well in this guitar. Even though the neck is a humbucker, it's not a ton hotter or louder than the bridge pickup, so there's a balance that's to always easy to find on some HS teles. You can go from creamy to spanky twang and everywhere in between, making this instrument a truly joyful experience to play. 

The white binding is subtle but awesome against the aged Olympic White on the body, and it really gives this guitar that little something extra in the aesthetics department, especially where the 3 Tone Sunburst pokes through. The tortoise shell pickguard is gorgeous as well, and looks particularly cool with the black pickup ring and the chrome cover of the neck humbucker. 

The neck is amazing and the Custom Shop did an a phenomenal job with the finish ( or lack thereof ) on the back. It's one of the smoothest necks we've felt in a while and its a very comfortable player whether playing chords on the first 5 frets or searing leads up in the higher register. It's a little on the chunky side, but in a good way and it feels up the hand nicely while one is engaged is telecaster tomfoolery. 

If you'd like to try this exemplary custom shop guitar or have any questions please stop by the Casino or give us a call at the shop.
