Waterslide Coodercaster T-Style w/Firebird Body 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 is one part Lap Steel with it's raised center section and one part Telecaster that features a White Pine body with a Flat Black Nitrocellulose Lacquer finish that's been lightly relic'd and aged. The whole guitar weighs in at 7lbs 8oz total so it's light for a Coodercaster with great balance & no neck dive.

The Flamed Maple & Rosewood neck has a nice Medium C shape (.82 - .94) profile with a 25.5" scale length. It's 1 11/16" at the nut with a 10" radius and 6105 frets. It has a light, slightly tinted satin finish that feels great and will not get sticky when playing. The back of the neck has beautiful flame set off by the dark rosewood fingerboard.

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 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.


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.
