I am a local custom guitar builder / luthier, and currently have several guitars available for sale.
This guitar is a custom telecaster with an Ash/Bloodwood body and a Red Zebrawood neck with a Bloodwood fingerboard. Guitar weighs 8.25 lbs.
The body and neck is finished with a hard oil that protects against the elements, allows the wood to breathe, and still leaves a natural "raw wood" feel. The fingerboard is sanded to 2000 grit and finished with multiple coats of orange oil. The neck has a two-way truss rod with adjustment at the heal.
The hardware consists of Hipshot staggered locking tuners, a Hipshot bridge with GraphTech saddles (2 1/8" string spacing), GraphTech Tusq string nut, and Schaller strap locks. Chrome knobs, pickup ring and recessed output jack.
The pickups are custom designed and hand wound by a professional pickup builder. All high quality materials made here in the USA. Both pickups are split-coil which produces a low or high output level. The neck pickup is reverse wound, reverse polarity to provide a "humbucking effect" when both pickups are active.
The pickup specs are as follows:
Bridge - low output 6.8k, high output 12.5k, polarity north up.
Neck - low output 6.06k, high output 10.88k, RWRP polarity south up.
Both pickups are a combination of Alnico 2 & Alnico 5 magnets.
(Alnico 2 for E, B, G for a slightly warmer, less harsh sound and Alnico 5 for D, A, E)
The selector switch is a MoJo Tone 4-way switch which provide the following pickup selections: position 1 - bridge, position 2 - bridge & neck in parallel, position 3 - neck, position 4 - bridge & neck in series.
The volume and tone are both CTS Professional series push/pull 500k potentiometers. The volume p/p pot controls the low/high output of the neck pickup (down low - up high). The tone p/p pot controls the bridge pickup low/high output (down low - up high). The tone is equipped with a MoJo Tone Mustard .22nf capacitor. The output jack is a Switchcraft.
The selector switch in combination with the push/pull pots provide a total of 12 pickup output options. This allows for a huge variety of sounds from one guitar.
The electronics cover is Bloodwood which I custom designed, angling the selector switch for easier access.
This guitar is strung with Ernie Ball M-Steel 9-46 strings, has low action, and has perfect intonation. Medium/jumbo frets, crowned & polished with no fret buzz or dead frets. She plays like a dream!
This is a "one of a kind" guitar. You will not find another one like it, and you will not be disappointed. I put a lot of time and love into all of my guitar builds, as I strive for perfection. To purchase a custom guitar of this caliber from the big F or G, one could empty their wallet of a considerable amount of dinero.
With saying that, my price is fair and firm. Price is $850.00
I will set up the guitar to your personal liking upon purchase.
I can be contacted by text only please. We can set up a time to take her for a test drive. I have several types of amps to play through.
I currently have several other telecaster style guitars in the build process. Contact me if interested in knowing more.
