$2000 plus shipping PP/F&F. Add 3% for regular PP. No trades.

Surf Green, double-bound body and one-piece roasted birdseye maple neck were made in the Fender Custom Shop in Corona, CA. Soft V, 9.5" radius. .86/.98; the same as an October 1956 Tele neck. The nut width is 1 11/16ths. The Fender vintage tuners were replaced with Tone-Pros Klusons. This guitar plays and sounds better than it looks.

As for the hardware, all of the Fender parts except for the input cup and the string tree were replaced by Glendale Guitars parts:

Glendale titanium saddles, Glendale raw deal steel bridge, neck plate, control plate, knobs & hot-rod tip.

The neck pickup is a new Gibson Burstbucker(type 1 Alnico 2 - 7.5k) and the bridge pickup is a Klein ‘50s Broadcaster (Alnico 5 - 6.6k)

ELECTRONICS

CRL 3-way control switch, CTS 450G 250K Potentiometers, Capacitor is a .022uF/630VDC. Switchcraft input jack

The guitar comes in a new Fender tweed hard case. The strap is not included.
