About This Listing

Body

The Telstar is reminiscent of the classic Telecaster. The body is made from a single piece of mahogany with a flamed maple cap and white binding. The mahogany is hollowed out to reduce the weight of the guitar and grain filled and stained to highlight the grain and natural colours of the wood. The maple cap is stained with a vibrant red, orange and yellow pattern to emphasise the flamed figure. The mahogany behind the f-hole is stained and finished before fitting the cap. The body is finished with polyurethane

Neck

The bolt on neck is made from a single piece of flamed maple with a dual action truss rod inserted from the rear and concealed with a bubinga skunk stripe. The truss rod access hole is decorated with aged copper leaf. Mother of Pearl fret markers are used. Hipshot locking tuners provide excellent tuning stability and wide Nickel-Silver fret wire is used and complemented with a hand-carved bone nut. The fret board comes with a subtle copper leaf inlayed gecko motif. The neck has 21 frets and uses the standard fender scale length of 25.5 inches or 647.5 mm. The neck is stained a light amber colour and made to look "rustic" in keeping with the body colours and a satin oil finish enhances the grain of the wood.

Pickups and Hardware

The Telstar features pickups from Iron Gear. The twin II pickups are single coil pickups but each pickup has a second coil that can be switched in to boost the sound. The neck pickup produces a beautiful clean sound and the bridge pickup gives a characteristic tele-twang that can be tamed with the tone pot. A 5-way switch is used for 'Bill Lawrence' wiring that enhances the range of tones available. Positions 1,2 and 3 are as standard and switch between neck, neck+bridge and bridge. Position 4 puts the two pickups out of phase to give a stratocaster style sound and position 5 adds a capacitor to the neck pickup to produce an even clearer tone. NB, the video associated with this listing illustrates the sounds from the same model of guitar but one that has a blue, quilted maple top.

The volume control is a push pull potentiometer that allows the additional windings of each pickup to be engaged for a high output boost to the sound.

A chrome surround is used for the neck pickup. The Kluson toploading bridge provide excellent control of intonation with style.

There is a very small flaw in the finish on the rear of the guitar and this is reflected in the reduced price.
