This is a custom build hand made instrument. We are producing these as our version of vintage Fender instruments made in the 50's. 60's and early 70's. Highly sought after original vintage instruments can bring well over 10,000. and taking them on stage and into studios is a serious risk. These Custom Shop instruments are light weight, resonant and have the feel, playability and tone of the old treasured instruments. They can be used for touring and recording without the risk of loss or damage.
Based on Richards' 53 Telecaster dubbed "Micawber", our tele features a see through Butterscotch finish with a lightweight paulownia body, maple neck, maple cap, a real Gibson Humbucker in the neck position, plus a Seymour Duncan the bridge and a NOS vintage paper in oil capacitor from Ukraine in the tone circuit, for the most accurate recreation of, arguably, his most famous guitar. Very light and resonant!
