VERY early Detemple Tele from 2005 here. These early guitars are coveted because they were made by Mike himself as he got off the ground. This one is an Ash body with a Flame Maple Neck. 1-11/16" Width and 7.25" Radius. Nice full V neck profile to die for! Sweet Spot pickups and of course the original hardshell case.
I acquired this guitar AND it's twin (Strat) many years ago from the original owner. Both were weather checked during transit (due to thin nitro). I had me a bright ideeeaaaa....I sent them to Mike and had him refinish them both in his famed Zsa Zsa black (named after his beloved cat). This black finish is extremely rare because it's so hard to apply. This was the first Zsa Zsa black tele. There was no structural issues just a color change. Since the change the guitar actually sounded better to my ears (fuller)...not sure why.
See all the specs and condition in the attached sheet. Happy to help you identify if this guitar is tonally what you're looking for vs. the dozens of other DTs I've had.
