Introducing T & T Customs "Purple Haze", made in Bakersfield California. This is the third of my custom builds to be offered for public purchase.

The music heritage of this great city is indisputable, and for all practical purposes Bakersfield put the "Telecaster" on the map.

This is my attempt to pay homage to those greats who came before me.

Why buy a boring, stiff Tele when you can have one like no other?

I'm breaking into the over saturated boutique market I know, but my only competition is myself. I don't build a ton of guitars, only a few, and I do it one at a time giving each one its own distinct personality, and top notch sound and playability.

Here is the build sheet on this guitar.
