Waterslide Telebacker USA 'Flat Blackberry' w/TV Jones Classic Filtertron Pickups & Hardshell Case

0.00

This is one of my newest custom made Telebacker guitars and it's all "Made in the USA". This body shape is derived from a 1950s Rickenbacker Combo 800, same shape that Fano uses on their RB6. 

This guitar features a White Pine body with a Nitrocellulose Lacquer finish that's been lightly relic'd and aged. I call it "Flat Blackberry" as it's Hot Rod Matte Black with a litttttle bit of Candy Apple Red showing through underneath. The whole guitar weighs in at 6lbs 4oz total so it's nice and light with great balance & no neck dive.

The neck is maple with a light flame & comfortable Chunky Soft V profile that's about .95" all the way up, a little less shoulder than a typical Boatneck so it sits nicely in the hand. Made by Warmoth, it's 1 5/8" at the nut with Warmoth's 10-16" compound radius and 6105 frets

The pickups are a TV Jones Classic + in the bridge and TV Classic in the neck for lots of Gretsch-y/Cabronita goodness. There's also Bourns audio taper pots, a 3-way switch, Sprague Orange Drop, cloth covered wiring and an Electro Socket jack. The pickguard is lucite and the chopped Tele bridge is made from 304 grade non-magnetic stainless steel (same as used on Mastery bridges) with compensated brass saddles. This bridge can also function as a top loader if you want to experiment with tone & string tension. 

Great parts and great care go into these guitars and this one comes in a hardshell case for $1,199 + shipping. Please email me for international shipping rates.
