Circa 2016 JW Custom Tele Style Maple Leaf guitar.

This instrument is in excellent condition showing limited playing time.

JW Guitars is a custom shop that makes high quality boutique guitars and electronics, basically a one-man operation. The designs are really quite spectacular. All of their guitars and electronics are handmade!

This is a JW “B” stock (misalignment issue string loading hole off center) Alder tele body, purchased complete with JW hot Tele pickups with the JW Expression System. By engaging capacitors, via push/pull pots, pickups can be re-voiced on the fly. Flame fiddleback redwood top, inlaid with Gold Mother of Pearl maple leaves, grounded cavities and Gotoh bridge.

Due to the misalignment JW didn’t want to build one of his custom necks for it. So, he had his client order a Warmoth 10” radius quarter sawn, compound to 14". It is the PRS “wide-thin” neck. JW finished the neck with vintage toner and did the final assembly.

JW body with M-O-P maple leaf inlays, JW electronics, Warmoth neck finished in vintage toner, strap locks, setup to perfection, Drop Dead gorgeous!

Hard-shell case included.

*Please note: we do our best giving descriptions of used pieces. We have found it impossible to describe every mark on an instrument or amp that is not in the "mint" category. Also, what's important to you may not be important to someone else. For example, you may say, "I don't care what it looks like as long as it plays or sounds well." Another person may say, "Body cosmetics are very important to me so tell me about every scratch, nick and blemish." So, please ask the questions that are most important to you. If you ask they will be answered. They are free and there's no limit. Additional photos can also be made available.

This is a specific item that is also being offered for sale in our brick & mortar location. It is possible that it has just been sold. Please ask if it is still available before purchasing.

*It is our policy to require a signature on delivery of all musical instruments. Please let us know if you prefer no signature required when ordering or we will automatically require a signature.

If you prefer your item to be sent without a required signature Imperial Guitar and the selected carrier can no longer be responsible for the security of the package once it has been delivered.
