"The vision was clear—to build hand-crafted custom guitars with the best tone, looks and playability available, and to build them from the from the ground up, from original design and concept to full production of the necks and bodies." - Don Grosh
Gently used double-bound Tele from Don Grosh just in on trade (yes, the same one we sold last year). We're huge fans of having more forward-thinking builders like Don working their magic within a more visually traditional format - hence the double-bound, 59 Burst look. Modern touches include locking tuners, 10" radius, semi-"chopped" Tele bridge, and 6150 frets. This is guitar is perfect for players who demand the highest level of build quality but don't want to sacrifice that feel and soul that makes vintage guitars so great. Best of both worlds? We sure think so.
Lightweight, snappy, a glorious satin finished neck (Large Roundback), and a slightly refined tone plugged in. Imagine recording a stellar example of a vintage Tele with a great amp, mic, preamp, and then hitting with an 1176 compressor - i.e., smooth, fat, warm, yet still twangy. What's not to like, right? No ice-pick Tele tones to be found here.
Near mint condition, with its original deluxe hardshell case.
