What We Think

Condition: Used, Very Good (one small ding on the upper shoulder, pictured)

Wow! The looks and feel of this guitar are truly exceptional. The Chocolate 3-Tone Sunburst immediately gives this Tele a totally unique look while still maintaining a vintage, classic air about it. Staying on theme, this beauty features clay face and side dots, a 3-Ply Mint pickguard, and is double-bound! Add on a perfectly deep 59 Large "C" neck and compound neck radius for playability and top it all off with the Custom Shop's Handwired '58 Tele pickups! What else could you possibly ask for?
