Here’s another tasty Tele Custom from the same builder as the Surf Green, Shell Pink and Matt Black guitars previously listed here at PREMIER GUITARS.
Again, this one is mostly Fender USA parts sourced from US guitar parts reseller The Stratosphere in Brentwood New Hampshire - https://stratosphereparts.com/
Here's the rundown –
Fender American Professional Telecaster Neck – new 2020 – one piece maple with stripey ebony fingerboard, modern C profile, satin lacquer, medium jumbo frets. Black staggered Fender locking back tuners. Matching gloss black headstock face with silver Fender and Telecaster logos (hard to see in our pics, but the logos are there). Serial # US19090244
Hosco Japan solid body (we think ash) in high gloss “Piano Black” lacquer with double binding.
Laminated cream coloured pickguard.
Fender USA Custom Shop ’51 Nocaster neck and bridge pickups
Fender Vintage Tele bridge with 3 x threaded steel saddles.
Emerson USA pots, caps & wiring with treble bleed – super high quality, hand wired in USA – see https://emersoncustom.com/products/3-way-telecaster-prewired-kit?variant=42583858314
Weight is 8.0 lbs
A bone nut has been installed and the guitar has been tweaked and set up by Matt Bullus at Saltmine Guitars in Sydney.
Besides the beautiful Piano Black finish with matching headstock, what sets this Tele apart from the pack is the top of the line USA Custom Shop ’51 Nocaster pickups. These pickups are regularly singled out by those who know to be the best choice of all Custom Shop Tele pickups. They shimmer, burn and bite in all the right ways. And they certainly do all that on this guitar.
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.
