Waterslide Telebacker 'Silvertone Sparkle' Lindy Fralin Big Single Pickups, Roasted Maple Neck, HSC

0.00

This is one of my newest custom made Waterslide 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. As with all of my guitars, if you like the guitar but would prefer a different neck, pickguard, pickups, etc, just send me a message and we'll see what we can do. 

This guitar features a White Pine body with a Lo-Fi 'Silvertone Sparkle' Nitrocellulose Lacquer finish that's been lightly relic'd and aged. The whole guitar weighs in at 6lbs 5oz total so it's LIGHT with great balance & no neck dive.

The Roasted Maple neck has an Indian Rosewood fretboard, Trapezoid Inlays and a nice slim 60's 'C' Profile that's about .80" to .85". It's 1 11/16" at the nut with a compound 10-16" radius & 6105 Frets. 25.5" scale length.

The pickups are Raw Nickel-covered Lindy Fralin "Big Singles" with 8,000 winds in the bridge and 7,000 winds in the neck. There's also Bourns audio taper pots, a 3-way switch, Sprague Orange Drop, cloth covered wiring and an Electro Socket jack. I found some vintage NOS Silvertone Radio Knobs, so those are on here to tie it all together.

The chopped Tele bridge is custom machined for us and 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. The brass saddles are Gotoh "In Tune" saddles which are notched and compensated for accurate intonation.

Great parts and great care go into these guitars and this one comes in a hardshell case for $1,299 + shipping. Please email me for international shipping rates.
