Waterslide Telebacker Sienna Sunburst w/ROASTED Maple Neck & Lindy Fralin Big Single Pickups, LIGHT!

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 lightweight Pine body with a Sienna 'Burst Nitrocellulose Lacquer finish that's been very lightly relic'd and aged. The whole guitar weighs in at 6lbs 8oz total so it's very light with great balance & no neck dive.

The straight-grained Roasted Maple neck has a nice & full Chunky C (.900 X .980) profile with a 25.5" scale length. It's 1 11/16" at the nut with a 10" radius and 6105 frets. It also smells like pancakes. Seriously, roasted maple smells like maple syrup which is an added bonus to its increased stability.

The pickups are Lindy Fralin Big Singles with 8,000 winds on the bridge and 7,000 winds on the neck. These pickups are among my favorite new/old designs as they accurately recreate the vintage Harmony Hershey Bar & Gold Foil pickups with a rubberized magnet and period correct construction. Very detailed sounding and extremely sensitive.

There's also CTS audio taper pots, a 3-way switch, Sprague Orange Drop, cloth covered wiring and an Electro Socket jack. The vintage style radio knobs are easy to grab and look great when the light hits 'em.

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 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.

Demo video was recorded directly into GarageBand, no amps or pedals were used.
