About This Listing

Here’s a beautiful new / floor model Fern Green Catalpa Tele built by luthier Michael Virok (a.k.a Virok Guitar Technologies, VGT) at the Guitar Rescue, Hamilton, NJ 08619, USA. The man is simply too busy with customer requests for his high-end luthier skills to find time for sales, so I volunteered to assist!

Catalpa is a very resonant wood, great clarity, reputed to be similar in sound to swamp ash, which is getting hard to come by these days. Catalpa is a relatively soft wood that is found throughout the northern US and has more traditionally been used for acoustic guitars. But its light weight and resonant properties are also perfectly suited for a solidbody electric.

Here are the specs for this non-pre-owned guitar that might only have some miniscule wear as a result of serving as a floor model in the Guitar Rescue display room:

  • Two-piece light Catalpa body (regionally sourced)
  • Stained and finished by hand at Guitars by Buren, flat/satin Truoil finish, very natural feel
  • One-piece maple neck, 21 frets, C profile, 10” radius, 1-5/8 nut width, modern tall frets
  • McNelly (boutique winder in Canada) A2 vintage style tele pickups
  • Kluson hardware
  • String through body to brass sustainer block
  • Volume, tone, 3-way pickup selector
  • Weighs in at 6 lbs. 9 oz. only!!!

Ideal if you are looking for a resonant instruments that won’t break your back! Sold as is, no case included.
