Giveaway Guitar Waiting for a New Home

inCaseWith the start of the 2009 Fundraiser / Giveaway there are four new guitars in my home just waiting to be sent to their new home. Well, three of the four are here and one is on the way.

We beg for money from you to help run the website for the next year and just for fun, we give away $12,000+ in free gear to reward you for supporting the website.

Cool Twang Personified

Cool Twang Personified

Lets start with the Grand Prize Fender Custom Shop La Cabronita Especial. This guitar just exudes cool. The Dakota Red color is perfect for this guitar. Surprisingly, it’s not a standard color for this guitar. If you buy a “stock” Cabronita Especial you have a choice of black or gunmetal gray. But Red seems just right to me.

caseThe guitar comes in a very nice black tolex case with an embroidered Custom Shop logo inside on the back “fur” lining.

relicThere is heavy relicing going on here. If you win this one (sorry… when you win, many of you just corrected me) don’t worry about knocking a bit of a finish off the body on this one. The neck is perfect — thick, but not too, and feels completely worn in. Cool pearl button turners and a giant Fender logo unlike any other.headstock

TVjonesPupThis guitar has only one pickup, and it’s a wicked TV Jones Classic pickup and has a meaty kind of Tele Twang that is different from a Tele pickup but nonetheless twangs with like a Tele should. TDP Moderator Tim Armstrong was here today and when he played the Especial he said, “crank the delay this guitar is made to rock-a-billy.”

It’s light and custom in every way. Including the special La Cabronita Especial decal on the back of the guitar.LCE-logo

Let’s face it, this is an expensive one of a kind Custom Shop kind of guitar — one that you’ll want to take home to your house on November 18th. How expensive? Well the CS Price List shows an MSRP of $4,800 for the STOCK colors. I don’t want to ask how much a special color adds to the pricing.

Here’s a video from the Fender Custom Shop showing off both this model and the Two Pickup version. So, you can get an idea of the sound you’ll get from this beauty when it’s in your home.

Will this especial guitar make it’s new home at your home? Only time will tell. Somebody has to win it. It might as well be you. Don’t you agree?

    i’m sorry, but where do you live exactly?

    :)

    .
    im thinking i need to build a new tele for myself.

  4. I’m sure it’s a great guitar. Half the pickguard is missing though, and they’ve accidently put a Gretsch pickup on it. This may come across as stuffy puritanism but if I could ever afford a Tele in that price range I’d prefer visually standard appointments.

  5. Radspin Radspin says:

    That is one of the coolest guitars I’ve ever seen.

  6. Wish I could embed this here

    I’ve heard two other Video Versions of this Na Cabronita Especial yhat I really liked

    The guitar was played through a Fender DSP 120 using Radial Tone Bone Classic, Z. Vex Super Hard-On and a Crybaby Dimebag Signature Wah.
