Summary: A beautiful Custom Shop Tele with a hand-selected lightweight ash body and big neck. A perfect marriage of vintage looks and modern playability. Tone for days.

Body: Lightweight Ash. Black lacquer finish with light relic.

Neck: Quartersawn maple. ’57 Soft “V” shape. Medium jumbo frets. 9.5” radius. 25.5” scale length. 1.65” nut width.

Pickups/Hardware: Twisted Tele neck pickup and Nocaster bridge pickup. 3-position pickup selector. Master volume and master tone controls with knurled knobs. Nickle/chrome hardware. Vintage style, 3 brass saddle bridge. Fender/Kluson vintage style staggered machine heads.

Cosmetics: This guitar is in excellent condition. The custom shop gave it a light relic treatment with subtle crazing and a handsome matte patina paired with a lightly aged white pickguard.

Playability: The neck is big and fat, but easy enough to move around on; combined with the light ash body, this makes for an extremely resonant, lively-sounding guitar. Action is low and the frets are full, and the board plays smoothly with no buzz or dead spots. The custom shop pickups are strong and clear, with plenty of bite and twang.

Weight: 7 lbs, 3 oz.

Case: Original hard shell and COA.
