$1,195.00 20309


It seems the very strange year of 2020 resulted in some out-of-the-ordinary pastimes …. like lots of folks using their COVID downtime to build some great guitars.

Some of this activity has been motivated by the fact that unless you’re in a big city, you may have some challenges finding the right Telecaster Custom with just the right specs …. until you realise that you can actually build it !

Here’s a great playing Fender Tele Custom built by an experienced player using mostly Fender USA parts sourced from US guitar parts reseller The Stratosphere in Brentwood New Hampshire -

From The Stratosphere – “We have been helping the world build a better guitar every day now for the past 16 years. We are best known for offering the largest selection of brand name necks & bodies anywhere. Our customers range from working musicians to repair shops to some of the most famous guitar players in the music industry.”

Here's the rundown –

Fender American Standard Telecaster Neck – one piece maple with rosewood fingerboard, modern C profile, satin lacquer, medium jumbo frets. Staggered Fender closed back tuners. Laminated parchment pickguard. Headstock face in Surf Green. Serial # US13112105

Fender Japan solid body (we think ash) in Surf Green lacquer with double binding.

Fender USA Noiseless Ultra Vintage Tele pickups.

Fender Vintage style Tele bridge with 3 x steel saddles

Emerson USA pots, caps & wiring with treble bleed – super high quality, hand wired in USA – see

Weight is 7.9 lbs                                                                  

It all went together very nicely, and the guitar has been tweaked and set up in a most professional manner.

The result is a fabulous Tele Custom that plays beautifully and sounds great.

This guitar is brand new – it has not been played live, in a studio, at a rehearsal … not anywhere. It was built for the enjoyment of the challenge, and then brought direct to PREMIER GUITARS to find a new home.

Comes as is – ie, it does not include a case.
