This was my dream guitar when I bought it and through a couple of lucky circumstances I was able to snag a real vintage tele custom that probably isn't better than this but it is the real thing and I have to ride with the original. I will regret this because it's the best neck I've ever played, the Don Mare pickups sparkle and the Double Bound Ash Custom Shop body is sooo clean. I considered parting the guitar out and keeping the neck and pickups for my vintage tele but it just seemed such a shame to take this beast apart.

Strange to think about upgrading a proper custom shop telecaster but that's exactly what has been done here. I believe this was a Summer NAMM guitar from a couple years back (my dealer couldn't verify but the build sheet does say "2019 Summer Event LTD"). I wasn't in love with the orignal neck from Fender so I put on a Musikraft asymmetrical .81-.94 (based on early 60's fender profiles). It is from a very limited run they did with Brazilian boards. It is a vintage 7.25 radius with mother of pearl inlays and a superbly cut bone nut. The board is really where it's at though, it's just stunningly dark with that unmistakable Brazilian grain pattern (look at the close-up photos of the board). The neck was finished in Nitro by MJT in a closet classic style to match how clean the body is. 

This is not a knackered relic guitar but should wear beautifully over time because of the Nitro finish. There is some very minor swirling but no dings or gouges to report. The guitar is in really great shape.

For pickups I swapped out the original Josefina's for a set of Don Mare's. It surprisingly wasn't close when I demo'd them against each other, the Mare's killed the Josefina's. I have a Hayride in the Bridge and a 53 in the Neck. They sparkle like a good country telecaster should. I can record an audio clip of them and send over if requested.

This guitar weighs in at a super light 7.16 pounds and is perfectly balanced. It will ship in it's original custom shop case with build sheet and signed COA. If you are in the Massachusetts area I would strongly encourage you to come check it out. If you play it you'll understand. Happy to text/talk if you have any questions, call 774-392-1392.
