The Limited Edition Brent Mason Telecaster, masterbuilt by Kyle McMillin, is inspired by the distinctive Tele Mason has used for countless recordings and performances with a one-of-a-kind-tone that has made him one of Nashville’s most sought-after session aces. For this detailed recreation, we had an amazing time in Nashville working closely with Mason—painstakingly disassembling the guitar, measuring every detail precisely and examining every last part.
Truly, it’s hard to tell this guitar from the custom-powerhouse original guitar Mason has put through its paces for so many years. From the black grease and oil marks on the primer-gray custom Heavy Relic® finish to the heavily worn quartersawn Relic maple neck, it effortlessly harkens back to Mason’s hard-played and long-serving original. A trio of Seymour Duncan® pickups includes a mini humbucking neck pickup, ’80s-style hot-stack middle pickup and vintage-stack Telecaster bridge pickup, all wired to a custom control assembly with individual volume for the middle pickup, a push/pull tone knob that deactivates the middle pickup when pulled, and three-way blade switching.
Other custom appointments include an off-center-seam ash body, 1967 “C” neck profile, 7.25”-radius round-laminated quartersawn maple fingerboard with 21 vintage frets and black pearloid face dots, and a Joe Glaser B-Bender system for extra Nashville twang. Deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity included.
