What We Think

Weight: 7.05 Lbs

Condition: Used, Very Good

For your consideration is this great Fender Custom Shop Telecaster that has some very nice relicing done as well as upgraded pickups to boot! If you're looking for a vintage T style guitar this '58 base definitely has some mojo. The neck profile is certainly more fitting of a guitar from decades past and with the finish (or lack thereof!) on the neck it truly feels great while playing chords or blazing through the positions in a lead setting. With JBE blade pickups I noticed a bit more balance in the EQ of the guitar compared to most teles and the guitar responded fantastically if you're using the volume and tone controls for most of your sound shaping. If you want a telecaster that has mojo to spare and plays like a dream then check out this great example from the Fender Custom Shop!
