This is about as close to a standard model as I get.
Tele body with the old style pickguard, inlaid, with THREE pickups. Standard Tele pickups and an additional overwound humbucker in the middle.
This one is Ambrosia Maple and Redheart, maple and rosewood neck. Note the opposing racing stripe front and back.
Five way switch, Neck,Neck/Bridge,Bridge,Bridge/Humbucker,Humbucker.
One Volume, one Tone.
Neck is 3 tuners on a side on the headstock, not six on a side like a normal Tele.
Tsunami Tonal Chamber standard under the pickguard.
First three positions are for the country twang and standard play, last two positions are for classic rock and power rock. Sold about five of this model so far, all in different wood schemes. This one went to New York State.
Thanks for lookin!
