If you're new to Grosh guitars, you can expect a flawlessly made, lightweight, extremely resonant, and ultra-deluxe playing instrument. These guitars brilliantly straddle the line between vintage feel and modern leaning features and build quality.
The satin-finished Medium/Large Roundback neck carve (.85"-.95") is a highlight of this guitar - just so comfortable and fast, it's hard to believe you're playing a Tele! The fretwork is outstanding and Don's own pickups deliver gorgeous twang coupled with a softened top-end (ie, no earsplitting treble here) and killer compression.
A common mod players make to their Telecasters is to put a Strat's middle pickup between the two Tele pickups, along with a Strat's 5-way switch (and in this case, a push/pull on the tone knob which allows you to access all 3 pickups at once). You've now got the best of both worlds - all the normal Tele tones (bridge, bridge/neck, neck) plus the addition of the 2 and 4 Strat positions (bridge/middle, middle/neck). It's a really cool setup and one we've loved for a long time. It's a great solution for players who are more in the Tele camp but do appreciate (or need) those clucky Strat tones from time to time.
Condition: Near mint save for one pinhead sized indentation on the back on some finish smudges near the output jack. The previous owner swapped the white middle pickup cover for the pictured black one - the white one is in the case.
An outstanding guitar that will please any player looking for the best of the best - or - the player who loves Tele's but wish they were a bit more refined. Priced with custom fitted hardshell case.
