Summary: Made between the years of 1989-1995, this souped up Telecaster offered some very modern features for the time while sticking to the classic feel and look of the Tele we know and love. The coil splitting options and ultra-clear Lace Sensor pickups seem at home on the beautiful ash body and maple neck. This guitar has been inspected, setup and restrung by our in house guitar tech and it is playing wonderfully.

Body: The ash body is finished in a nice dark edge sunburst and topped off with a white 3 ply pickguard.

Neck: It has a C shaped maple neck with 21 frets, 25.5” scale length, 1.675” nut width, black dot fingerboard markers, skunk stripe and closed back Fender tuners.

Pickups/Hardware: The neck pickup is the original Blue Lace Sensor single coil and the bridge pickup is a later version Red Lace Sensor humbucker. Master volume & tone controls with knurled knobs, 3-way pickup selector switch & 3-way mini toggle for coil splitting. All electronics are in good working condition.

Cosmetics: There are some minor scuffs on the body, mostly on the back and all consistent with a played but well cared for guitar of its age. There is one small ding on the bottom by the output jack (see picture) and a small crack in the nut but it does not affect the playability.

Playability: Our in house luthier has inspected, set-up and restrung this guitar with a new set of 10s. The neck is straight, the truss rod is operating as it should and the frets are plenty tall with tons of life in them. Although there is a little bit of wear on the frets it plays great without issues and the notes ring clear and true. This is a truly special guitar, it sounds and feels wonderful with low action up and down the fingerboard.
Modifications: The original Red Lace Sensor bridge humbucker has been replaced with a more recent version of the same pickup.

Weight: 7 lbs, 15 oz.

Case: This wonderful Tele ships in its original tweed hard-shell case with red plush interior.
