With a vintage look and feel and modern touches not specific to any certain year, the Postmodern Tele gives players everything they want with amazing tone, comfort and sonic capabilities.
Why We Love This
The two-piece ash body with contoured neck heel features a "Wide Fade" 2 Tone Sunburst with a Journeyman Relic lacquer finish, while the quartersawn maple neck hosts a ’60 style “oval C” profile, 9.5”-radius quartersawn maple fingerboard and 21 narrow tall (6105) frets. The neck carve is a highlight of the Postmodern series in our book. The Oval C is the perfect "middle ground" for most players who don't want an overly fat neck, yet, don't want an 80s style slender C either.
Hand-wound loaded ’51 Nocaster (bridge) and wide range Cunife (neck) pickups are sent through dual-stack HS Tele wiring with an angled switch and electro socket output jack - a nice, and unexpected touch! We can't say enough about the wide range humbucker and '51 Nocaster combo. Both lean towards the chimey side and balance nicely though the humbucker has a smidge more output as you'd expect.
Other features include a three-ply parchment pickguard, ’58-’63 Tele bridge with compensated brass RSD saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree.
