Another of our lucky hand-selected batch has arrived and we are thrilled! This piece thrilled us and we snatched her up and we are even more excited to be able to offer her to our great customers. The feel is immaculate and the fit and finish is pure vintage. The relic work is outstanding o this piece. There is a true magic to the feel and look of this instrument. When you first put your hands on the neck you can tell you are grabbing something special. The moment you plug this guitar in you are transported to the early 60's and the tones that pour out of this beast are pure vintage. There is a great Bakersfield ability within this beast as well as a growler with a bit of overdrive.
If you want a pure toned Tele with the most pure circuit besides an Esquire then look no further. The neck pickup really cuts and can pull the best out of any amp. There is a strange mix of vintage and modern in this pickup in that it really can cut through the mix when needed with the right attack. No one wanted to put this guitar down once they started playing. The bridge pickup can scream and get that Johnny Cash/Luther Perkins sound. We had a game where we awere only allowed to use the bridge pickup and tone controls and were able to create an Esquire, Les Paul, and Tele all in one at points. Needless to say it was a very fun game and everyone won! Position 3 is the classic tone cut and db down setting that Leo Fender fought hard to keep all the years he was with Fender. It wasn't until 1967 that CBS changed that circuit, taking away a bit of what Leo thought was that magic of his original design. If you are looking for a proper Tele than this might be about as good as it gets.
