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 bigger body made of highly resonant swamp ash and a very thin nitrocellulose finish with no nasty glossy lacquer. You strum this guitar - and it is as loud as a big-bodied semi-hollow Gibson, with sustain for days.
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 available as well, but please get in touch to discuss EU shipping.
P.S. We currently have a similar Jazzcaster offset in Butterscotch Blonde with a 1986 maple fretboard neck and a Fiesta Red Relic Jazzcaster with 1985 rosewood fretboard neck - have a look!

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 and we cannot give any guarantees. 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.
