The guitar is made of ash and fairly lightweight in a beautiful transparent caramel color called Butterscotch Blonde that shows off the grain. It has a maple fingerboard and neck. It is almost completely mint (there is one small ding on the front edge of the lower bout that could be made invisible with one drop of lacquer) and has hardly ever been played. Maybe a total of one hour of playing time over the life of the instrument. It has the best high-end Fender locking tuners, a top line chrome plated brass adjustable bridge with 6 independent string adjusters, and an S-1 hot push button volume control. The top of the volume knob is actually a push-down switch that combines the two pickups in a series configuration called S-1 which produces a super-fat hi-gain sound. It has 3rd generation N3 noiseless pickups that do not alter the Vintage screaming Telecaster tone. You really can get any Telecaster sound out of these pickups with no noise problems.
This is one of the best Telecasters you can get in a modern instrument. The fingerboard is maple and has a 9.5-14 compound radius. The neck profile is a modern ?C? shape. The back of the instrument is ergonomically contoured to fit the human body, so playing it standing up is really comfortable. Not like a standard or Vintage Telecaster both of which feel like you have a heavy wood slab hanging off you that can induce guitar player?s hunch. It has a hard molded case with TSA locks.
