What We Think

Condition: Used, Very Good

If you ever wanted the versatility of a strat with the tone of a tele, this '60s Hot Rod tele was built with your name on it! The S-1 switch adds the texas special bridge pickup into positions 3, 4, and 5 allowing for another layer of tonal versatility. With a D-shape neck you'll feel right at home the whole way down the neck, especially combined with the compound radius fretboard. This guitar was built to be a workhorse and we think it's time you got in the saddle.
