Waterslide Coodercaster Candy Apple Red Strat w/Mojo UK Lap Steel & Vintage Teisco Gold Foil Pickups

0.00

This is one of my newest custom made Waterslide Telebacker guitars and it's all "Made in the USA". 

This Coodercaster features an Alder body with a 'Candy Apple Red Metallic' Nitrocellulose Lacquer finish that's been lightly relic'd and aged. The whole guitar weighs in at 7lbs 11oz total so it's light for a Coodercaster with great balance & no neck dive.

The Maple & Rosewood neck has a nice 50's Soft V to D shape (.85 X .97) profile with a 25.5" scale length. It's 1 11/16" at the nut with a 10" radius and 6150 Medium Jumbo frets. It has a light, slightly tinted satin finish that feels great and will not get sticky when playing. There's a Telecaster headstock on this neck but it has the correct Stratocaster neck heel for a tight and correct fit.

The bridge pickup is a Valco-style Lap Steel Pickup by Mojo Pickups UK. I have a Lollar and a vintage Valco to compare this to and the Mojos nail the vintage sound and design. Very fat with tons of sustain and punch. Primarily used by slide players like Ry Cooder, Jason Isbell and Blake Mills, these Lap Steel pickups have a special magic with open tunings and bottleneck playing.

The neck pickup is a vintage 60's-era Teisco Gold Foil that holds its own with the Lap Steel pickup with a sweet top end and clarity that provides a nice complement, tonally. 

The aged Strat tremolo is by Gotoh with a Steel Block and stainless steel saddles.


There's also CTS audio taper pots, a 3-way Oak Grigsby switch, Sprague Orange Drop and cloth covered wiring. The vintage style radio knobs are easy to grab and look great with the Tortoise guard.

Great parts and great care go into these guitars and this one comes in a hardshell case for $1,499 + shipping. Please email me for international shipping rates.
