Offered here is a one-of-a-kind instrument from Lentz, an all-Mahogany beauty built to a customer's specifications. This guitar is Lentz' take on a Tele Junior, which of course was Fender's take on the LP Special/Junior. The specs for this instrument include: a light weight Mahogany body with a very thin vintage cherry nitrocellulose finish and a total guitar weight of just 7.5 pounds (7 pounds, 8 ounces); a one-piece Mahogany neck with a very soft V to C shaped neck and depth measurements of .88" at the 1st fret increasing to .98" at the 12th fret; a very dark Indian Rosewood fretboard with 9.5" radius, 6105 frets and a 1.655" bone nut; a Rutters hardtail bridge with brass saddles; and for electronics, Lentz Custom P-90 pickups with VTT and a three way switch.
The sound of this guitar is HUGE! Listen to the provided Soundcloud sample and I think you will agree. These P-90's can do clean nicely, but they really want to be driven! You can get Tele twang, but you can also get a fat LP-like tone. The all-Mahogany construction gives this guitar a touch of warmth to the tone that you don't get from a conventional Tele setup. It plays superbly and is setup nicely with a new set of Elixir Nano .10's.
This guitar is in very good cosmetic condition. The body shows some clearcoat play wear and a few tiny boo-boos here and there, the worst of which are pictured. The neck, fretboard and frets are virtually spotless and the overall look is superb. It comes to you in a blonde Lentz G&G case.
This one-off guitar cost over $4K a couple of years ago and would cost even more (and a significant wait time) to reproduce today. Get this great and unique piece for lots less. Get yourself a Lentz electric, you will be very glad you did!
