This player’s guitar takes the best features of early classic Tele design and combines them in a unique package that feels & sounds fantastic, and is built to play. The relic butterscotch body is pure Blackguard vibe, while the two Duncan Broadcaster pickups are spankin’ bright and gritty in all the right ways. And at a flyaway 6.8 lbs this is a light and lively guitar to play
Though it's a combination of vintage original, replacement, and replica parts, it all adds up to a truly fine guitar which plays beautifully and sounds like a vintage Tele without breaking the bank.
You could opt for a modern relic or roadworn guitar, but this neck has the feel of a 45+ year old instrument, the pickups are accurate replicas of Fender’s original Broadcaster, the bridge is vintage relic repro, and the vibe is definitely old school classic Fender.
