Waterslide Tele-Jet w/Fralin & TV Jones DeArmond Pickups+Guitar Mill Telecaster Neck

0.00

This is my newest custom "Made in the USA" Waterslide Guitar. I've accumulated a lot of parts over the years from building Strats and Teles so I wanted to try building something a little different. This body shape is derived from a Gretsch Duo Jet with a little Telecaster influence thrown in for good measure. 

This guitar features a White Pine body with a Nitrocellulose Lacquer "Beatles Burgundy" finish that's been lightly relic'd and aged... really nice woodgrain visible underneath. The whole guitar weighs in at 6lbs 8oz total so it's LIGHT! I have a few original Old-West style decals from the 50's kicking around so I've put one on the pickguard here and clear-coated over it for a C&W/Roundup vibe. Yee-ha.

The neck is a beautiful Guitar Mill maple neck with a nice Full C profile and an Indian Rosewood fretboard. It's 1 5/8" at the nut with a 10" radius & 6105 Frets.

The pickups are a Fralin Broadcaster +2% in the bridge and a glorious sounding TV Jones T'Armond/DeArmond pickup in the neck. They sound really great individually and blend well together with nice power and clarity. There's also Bourns audio taper pots, a 3-way switch, Sprague Orange Drop, cloth covered wiring and an Electro Socket jack. 

Great parts and great care go into these guitars and they come in a tweed hardshell case for $1,150 shipped & PayPal'd to the USA. Please email me for international shipping rates.
