GUITAR DEMO: https://youtu.be/3xfGHmUTId8
Who knows what could have happened if the Space Age arrived a decade earlier... Maybe back in 1952 a Telecaster would have looked just like this custom offset?
We are head over heels in love with this combination of custom-made offset body from highly resonant alder and a truly unique Chameleon Purple to Green sparkle metallic gloss finish. The sparkle has that cool 3D effect and the guitar changes colour depending on the angle and lighting.
Complemented by a unique single-ply "cloudy" white pickguard, this guitar has a truly special look. Comfy C-shape maple neck comes from a 1996 Fender American Standard Stratocaster.
Bend-friendly 9.5-inch fretboard radius and 22 medium jumbo frets make this a true pleasure to play. Truss-rod is conveniently adjusted at the headstock, the neck is straight as an arrow and the neck pocket fit is perfect and snug.
Electrical voice is kindly provided by a set of hand-wound late 1960s style single-coil Telecaster pickups - twangy but not harsh, rich yet detailed, powerful but still articulate. Wiring is all high-quality USA-spec components, with CTS A250K vintage style "dimple" pots, Oak 4-way switch. Green Hornet ceramic capacitor and Electrosocket output jack mount. 4-way wiring provides those 3 classic Telecaster sounds (neck,neck+bridge in parallel, bridge) and also offers a very powerful humbucker-like tone, where both pickups are connected in-series, doubling the output and really driving the amp. This setting is especially awesome thanks to the perfect balance of bright and detailed bridge pickup, warm and full neck pickup and the absence of the mid-scoop and volume drop, which you always get in the traditional middle position when pickups are connected in parallel.
The bridge is a classic 50s design and has thick high-quality base plate to proper string-to-body coupling. The brass saddles provide a warmer tone and also have compensated design to help achieve much better intonation across the fretboard. This guitar comes in as-new condition with no visible wear.
This instrument received a full professional setup with deep body clean, body polish, neck deep clean, full electronics check, truss-rod and action and intonation adjustment. Restringed with D'addario 10-46 Nickel-plated steel strings.
This guitar will be shipped around UK with Parcelforce courier, safely packed into a sturdy guitar cardboard box. 24h courier service provided for UK customers. Worldwide shipping provided as well.

Please note that although we put our heart and soul and also all our knowledge into every single guitar we sell, a setup is a personal preference. However, we try to get the best playability out of every guitar and set them up so you can play both rhythm and lead. We also pull them all apart to clean and check every single component and replace all unreliable parts with new ones, from dodgy pots to the whole wiring, tuners, string trees, nuts and etc. All the work done is described in detail in the listing.
We make sure that every guitar we sell is problem free and take full responsibility for the accuracy of our listing descriptions. All photographs are done by a professional photographer and processed on a calibrated monitor. Some colours might look slightly different on your monitor, but we will always put the official Fender colour name in the listing description, so please study pictures of other guitars with the same colour if you are unsure. We focus on finding great quality guitars and making them reliable and inspiring to play.
