Waterslide Telebacker Copper Top 'Two Tone' Guitar w/Klein Telecaster & Firebird Pickups,Case, VIDEO

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.


This is one of my newest custom made Waterslide Telebacker guitars and it's all "Made in the USA". This body shape is derived from a 1950s Rickenbacker Combo 800, same shape that Fano uses on their RB6. As with all of my guitars, if you like the guitar but would prefer a different neck, pickguard, pickups, etc, just send me a message and we'll see what we can do. 

This guitar features a lightweight Pine body with a Copper Top w/Black Sides Nitrocellulose Lacquer finish that's been very lightly relic'd and aged. The whole guitar weighs in at 6lbs 7oz total so it's very light with great balance & no neck dive.

The Maple & Rosewood neck has a Tele style headstock with a nice & full "Full 59" profile that's about .89" at the first fret up to about .95" at the 12th fret. It's 1.685" at the nut with a 10" radius and 6105 frets

The pickups are a Klein 67 Tele in the bridge and a Klein Firebird in the neck. They've been wired so that the bridge pickup "sees" the volume pot at 250k and the neck pickup gets 500k. This way, you get the best tone from both pickups whether they're played alone or together.

There's also CTS audio taper pots, a 3-way switch, Sprague Orange Drop, cloth covered wiring and an Electro Socket jack. The vintage style radio knobs are easy to grab and look great with the Mahogany and Tortoise accents.

The stainless steel Tele bridge is made by Gotoh and the sides are cut and tapered for comfortable playing and traditional tone. The brass saddles are compensated for accurate intonation.

Great parts and great care go into these guitars and this one comes in a hardshell case for $1,199 + shipping. Please email me for international shipping rates.

Demo video was recorded directly into GarageBand, no amps or pedals were used.
