Description
An incredibly well built and easy playing Tele Custom by Mario Guitars. The Metallic Flake finish is very reminiscent of the Tele's you've seen played on the Grand Ol Opry stage and show, back in the late 60's and onward. It has a very Old Time Americana vibe to it. The tonality is classic Tele. Lot's of bite and twang in the bridge with glassy single coil neck position tone (very usable on this guitar) and a great middle position, which is very useful for fingerpicking styles. Fralin Pickups do a great job at winding vintage correct sounding late 50's early 60's era Tele pickups, without the harshness or microphonic overtones many of those pickups are known for. This guitar is easy on your back at just 6lbs 4oz and has one of the best necks on a new Tele that we've tried. It's a Chunky C profile with a nice gradual taper from .860" at the 1st fret to .930" at the 12th, the finish is a med gloss Nitro, which feels like playing an older guitar without having any fake wear or relicing to the back of the neck. It is not sticky like a high gloss finish would feel. The only parts on this guitar that are aged are the hardware; bridge, saddles, tuners etc. Definitely a worthy piece to any guitar arsenal or collection.
