I should first state that this guitar is not a Fender product, but a copy of a guitar they used to make.

The main feature of this guitar is the Fender Liscenced ALLPARTS fat neck which measures approx 1 inch thick for its entire length.

The back of the neck has had its finished removed and replaced with a slightly oiled finish for a nice smooth feel.

The fretboard radius is 9.5 inches and has regular sized frets. Vintage tuners with an aged patina complete the neck.

The body is swamp ash in the usual butterscotch finish in a low gloss sheen-the previous owner was advised it was a Guitar Mill body, however there are no markings on the body.

The body is of course routed for a neck pickup.

The pickguard is real bakelite as is the knob for the 3 way switch.

At the heart of this guitar is a Lollar Special Tele Pickup which measures 8K Ohms.

The guitar is wired with CTS pots and a Russian Paper-in-Oil .047 capacitor.

The wiring is:

Pickup straight to Jack-no volume or tone controls-the real sound of this pickup

Pickup wired through the volume and tone pots-the usual tele sound

The Eldred Mod which produces what is referred to as the Cocked-Wah tone

The guitar weighs approx 7.5 lbs

A real Fender shotgun case from the late 90’s and early 2000’s is included

This guitar once had a Fender LapSteel pickup so there is a bit of extra routing on the pickup cavity.

$750 plus shipping or $950 Canadian plus shipping
