When we consider the number of Teles that pass through the 'Elkcave, there are a select few that really stand out. This '60 reissue Tele Custom is just one of those special guitars and if you're ever searching for one, good luck. Due to the limited time of production, which was 2002- 2005, these guitars have fallen into the "rare as hen's teeth" category and the list of neat features is long and interesting. The first aspect of this guitar that you'll find intriguing is that it was built using the original tooling from 1960. Yep- it was made like they were back in the day and if that doesn't establish a vintage lineage, I don't know what does. It has an absolute direct line to the past, so let me present a few of the specs that make this guitar so special:

  • Beveled poles on the bridge pickup, just like an original Tele Custom
  • Early 60's "C" shaped neck
  • Slab Rosewood fretboard with a 7.25" radius
  • Fender/Gotoh vintage style tuners
  • 3-ply parchment pickguard
  • Custom 60's Tele pickups
  • Finely relic'd nitrocellulose finish
  • Wide dot spacing

    Those are but a partial mention of cool features on this guitar and the accompanying build sheet provides the entire list in detail. You pick this Tele up and it just feels...old. That's the sign of a well-made axe and you'll want to start blistering on this guitar from the first moment you pick it up. It also has a perfect weight of 7 lbs, 7 oz, so it's middle age picker and back- friendly. Trust me- you'll appreciate that feature after 10 minutes of playing this fine machine. As always, we thank you for visiting the land of the free and the home of the brave- please feel free to email of call with any questions or requests.
