Waterslide Telebacker USA 'Pelham Blue' Top JR/Cabronita w/Lindy Fralin P90 Pickups & Hardshell Case

0.00

This is one of my newest custom made 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 one-piece White Pine body with a Nitrocellulose Lacquer finish that's been lightly relic'd and aged. It's finished like a Goldtop but with a Pelham Blue top instead. The whole guitar weighs in at 6lbs 7oz total so it's nice and light with great balance & no neck dive.

The neck is maple by USACG with a comfortable medium C profile that's about .81" at the first fret up to about .84" at the 12th fret. It's 1.65" at the nut with a 10" radius and 6105 frets

The pickups are Raw Nickel-covered Lindy Fralin P90s with a  standard wind in the bridge and a -15% wind in the neck. There's also Bourns audio taper pots, a 3-way switch, Sprague Orange Drop, cloth covered wiring and an Electro Socket jack. The pickguard is a new shape for us and can easily be switched to one of our standard pickguards or no pickguard on request.

The chopped Tele bridge is custom machines 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 saddles are Gotoh "In Tune" saddles that are notched and compensated for accurate intonation and no sliding around.

Great parts and great care go into these guitars and this one comes in a hardshell case for $1,199 + shipping. Please email me for international shipping rates.

I also take custom orders :)
