Summary: This Creston guitar is called the “Atom Schmitt’s Water Tank G-Bender” and it was made with reclaimed wood from an old locomotive water tank from the 1800’s! This guitar was recently set up with a set of 10’s and it plays & sounds great. This instrument ships with the original gig bag.
Body: Western red cedar body that began its vocational life as a stave in a locomotive water tank on the trans-American railroad, circa late-1860s. This Telecaster has a natural wood finish and a custom metal 1 ply pickguard.
Neck: 1 piece maple neck, 21 frets, black dot inlays, big chunky fat neck, 1 5/8” nut width, 25.5” scale length.
Pickups/Hardware: B&W G bender, aged nickel hardware, Duncan Antiquity neck pickup, Duncan Broadcaster bridge pickup, one master volume knob, one master tone knob, 3-way switch, original vintage Kluson style tuning keys.
Cosmetics: This guitar does have some dings & scratches on the body and you can see the age of this old piece of wood with lots of wear around the edges.
Playability: We set this guitar up with a new set of 10’s – the truss rod is fully working – the action is low & if you like a big chunky neck you will love the way this Creston plays & feels. The frets are in good shape & have a ton of life left in them.
Weight: 6 lbs, 11 oz.
