Up for grabs here at The Guitar Dude we have this clean and mean, Telecastin' Machine, that floats like a butterfly, and stings like a bee. This semi-hollow, gunslinger special was crafted at Tokai-Gakki, Japan an 2003 and features a toneful and resonant, well crafted ash body married with a perfect and killer one piece maple neckThe reissues that are produced in Japan are some of the best re-iterations of classic Fender guitars ever to be produced. In many cases, the reissues manage to surpass the originals, in terms of many factors including wood quality, weight, attention to detail and overall craftsmanship with this particular case being no exception. Lightweight and lively, this Tele delivers top-shelf Thinline tonality and a comfortable playing ease that'll easily make her your main squeeze night after night. This piece speaks the language of Telecaster well, and does so with a fluency and toneful accuracy that will please. Authentically voiced, wide-range humbucking pickups, vintage-style hardware and top quality woods combine to culminate a playing experience that is sublime. This piece is in excellent, near-mint condition with zero playwear and almost no handling marks to speak of. Here's a golden opportunity to get ahold of an exceptional piece that is in equally exceptional condition. Monday's pick of the day, and truly cream of the crop, look no further for complete, Thinline satisfaction...only at The Guitar Dude.
