A fantastic Custom Shop Telecaster that sounds a touch more refined and punchy than you typically expect from a Tele. Yes, that's a good thing.

To our ears and hands, Teles come in two basic flavors. Now keep in mind we're using a healthy dose of 30K foot thinking here. The two flavors are: raw, twangy, brash and bright. Classic Bakersfield stuff. The other flavor leans heavier in the refined, rounded top-end, fatter, punchier...Perhaps you've noticed this difference after trying out a bunch of Teles? Just us?

We mention this to give you an idea of where this fantastic '50s Telecaster is coming from - it's in the 2nd category. Plugged in, the tones are punchy, fat, slightly compressed, while retaining a Fender's iconic clarity and top-end response. Acoustically, its snappy and lively. Simply put, it's a really great sounding guitar.

Its even taper, '54 Strat Soft V (.99-.99") feels great in-hand. Yes, those measurements sound big, unwieldy even, but it doesn't feel that way in-hand. It's shaped really well, with a little less shoulder than you'd find on an early 50s style neck, and sports a 9 1/2" radius which makes it easier to manage - bending is a breeze as is chord work.

Condition--Well, it's a relic. Beyond Fender's relic work, there are one or two very small (pin head sized) indentations on the back of the neck (we weren't bothered by these when playing, just wanted to mention they're present). The fresh setup plays great!
