Description
The COOOOOLEST Detemple I've had...and I have had 10% of all he has ever made...over 50 at this point.  Let me tell you...nothing touches a Detemple for overtones in a F-style guitar.  Maybe it's the way Michael mates necks & bodies during the build process.  Maybe it's the way he has the tightest neck-to-body connection I've seen.  Maybe it's the large necks and flame maple?  Maybe the 1-piece bodies from select light woods.   Maybe it's the hand shaping? Michael isn't just a world class luthier..he is also a world class player who has been on stage touring with some all-time greats.  It's one thing to be a builder...one thing to be a player...but a man who has done both at world class levels brings another dimension of know-how to the table. Such is the case with this one-off Tele-Gib "Jeff Beck" tribute comissioned by a friend of mine.  OHHHH it is a nice one.  Has that nice bottom end snap you lust for in a great tele....has that light weight you wish your LP had.....has that wonderful soft V neck you always lusted after.   This guitar just shined through every one of my vintage and modern amps in the library.   You like gain...come at it.....I threw a Bogner Twin Jet at it and it blew away my supposed 'shred' guitars.  Princeton Reverb....lush spanky cleans ...nice underwond pickups that don't color or over-push the amp.
