Introducing T & T Customs "Buck Fever", made in Bakersfield California. This is the fourth 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 and Buck Owens (among others) put the "Telecaster" on the map.

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

With the world famous Bakersfield arch engraved with "Buck Fever" on the back, this Telecaster is dripping with twang and mojo.

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.
