Waterslide Telebacker Snakehead with Fralin Pure PAF pickups

0.00

Here's a brand new custom made Telebacker and it's all "Made in the USA". 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 particular body shape is derived from a Rickenbacker Combo 800, same as Fano uses on their RB6. 

This guitar features a White Pine body with a Nitrocellulose Lacquer 'Blue Black' finish (Lake Placid Blue over Black) that's been lightly relic'd and aged with the black peeking through the blue in spots. The whole guitar weighs in at 6lbs 3oz total so it's LIGHT but still balances well with the Snakehead headstock. 

The neck is a Fender Licensed Musikraft Snakehead Telecaster maple neck with a nice hand-shaped Medium C profile that's .86-.97", with a verrrrry slight V in the lower registers by the nut. It's 1 11/16" at the nut with a 10" radius & 6105 Frets.

The pickups are Lindy Fralin Pure PAFs with Tortoise covers. Really nice vintage-sounding humbuckers with plenty of clarity and definition. There's also Bourns audio taper pots, a 3-way switch, Sprague Orange Drop cap, 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 $1,149 + shipping. Please email me for international shipping rates.
