This guitar is the best guitar we ever put together. Period.

- custom handwound Vintage Inspired Pickups T-60 prototype pickups, wound to early 60s Fender specs with vintage NOS wire, AlNiCo 5 magnets

- highest quality electronics (set of matched Vintage Inspired Pickups 280k VIPots, vintage US-made Sprague Orange Drop .047 MFD cap, Switchcraft jack, Oaks & Grigsby 3-way switch)
- lightweight at 3.5 kg or 7.7 lbs
- brand new ABS hardshell case
The best thing about this guitar, though, is its sound. I do own and have owned several old and new Telecasters (some call it an obsession), but this one's riding with the very best - super dynamic, reacts to the slightest nuances, tremendous sustain, etc.
I'm a strong believer that the fantastic neck (and its thickness) plays a great role in how the guitar reacts to the player. And while chunky, this neck plays exceptionally great, due to the compound radius.
All in all a wonderful guitar that I wish I could keep. But it'll make someone else very (!) happy. That one's a lonely island guitar with absolute No. 1 potential.
Like with all guitars, you may have to adjust the setup to your liking. As of now, it is set up with D'Addario 10s and plays effortlessly with low action.
