BODY: This is a Fender MIM body purchased from direct from the Fender factory. It is Candy Apple Red. Some of the photos make it look more red but it is a real Candy Apple Red Color. I will also include an additional White Tele pickguard.
NECK: It is fitted with a Warmoth Roasted Maple Neck with a 22 fret rosewood fret board. It has a Tusq XL luthier-adjusted nut . Vintage/Modern model and 6105 Fender-like medium jumbo fret size. Compound radius of 10" to 16". The tuners are original Fender USA. The bridge is a heavy brass Stewmac chrome bridge. The pots are 250 cts and in the center position it is wired for the Fender S2 switching arrangement and is activated by raising the tone knob. This makes the pickups a full-range humbucker.
PICKUPS: The guitar is fitted with custom wound to my specs single coil noiseless pickups by RC Pickups located in Connecticut. They are fantastic. Perfectly balanced for rock and blues and powerful in all positions and humbucker power when the S2 is engaged. When I mounted the neck, a small flake of paint came off of the body at the neck joint. It is superficial..Absolutely no crack just exposed wood the size of the tip of a finger nail..see picture.
TONE: First, playability: The neck is PRS-like in its feel, balance, and precision. The guitar easily intonates. The baked maple neck does not require any treatment -- the neck is comfortable, smooth as glass, and fast. Paired with the Alder body, the quality bridge, quality pots, and certainly the custom wound RC Pickups jointly speced by RC and myself, makes this a tone monster.
Both at low and driving volumes, the tone of this guitar is excellent! Bass and midtones with just the needed amount of high-end give it that sought after tone. Voiced for blues, blues rock, and today's music styles this guitar effortlessly provides the tone, volume, to allow you to dominate the mix and standout when playing lead.
BODY: New from Fender MIM
NECK: New Warmoth Roasted Maple; Rosewood 22 frets
PICKUPS: CUSTOM USA Made with 250k Pots and S2 Switching
SUMMARY: All parts are new except for the tuners which I took off a Tele Deluxe. The guitar has a total of no more than 1 hour playing time.
I have of Fenders, Gibsons, and PRSs, and custom assembled guitars. This is about the 25th guitar that I have assembled. It is meticulously assembled and setup well. Frets are level from Warmoth. I have been playing guitar for 50 years professionally and semi-professionally.
The guitar has been played only to dial it in. Never out of the house except when I took it to the luthier to adjust the nut and check the fret level. It has never been on a strap, never gigged.
