Description: This is a great vintage Telecaster. It’s resonant and lively and sings when unplugged. When plugged in it is articulate, springy and full of character. This guitar can do it all but really excels at those classic, wiry Telecaster sounds. The bridge pickup sound is toneful and biting but never harsh and the neck pickup tone is articulate and rich and a great compliment to the bridge whether clean or distorted. This guitar looks incredible, plays awesome, is chock full of vintage mojo and best of all it sounds like all those classic Tele sounds on those old (and not so old) records we love.  It will absolutely be among the very few in your collection that you reach for time and time again!
