Model Overview:

This upgraded, bound workhorse telecaster is constructed from is handcrafted from a two piece Alder Body paired with a Quarter Sawn Maple neck. The Journeyman finish is engineered to represent a well loved, and a well played guitar, handed down through the years but not leaving the house often, with a few marks and some checking.

The Neck which is paired with the body is a 1963 C Profile with a 9.5 laminate fingerboard which is comfortable and immediately familiar and fitted with #6105 frets. Sonically this Telecaster is loaded with two hand wound twisted tele pickups which are hotter than a standard telecaster pickup and benefit from Fender's Greasebucket tone circuit which retains volume when you roll back the tone control.

Includes a Deluxe Hardshell Case, Strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
