About This Listing

This Custom Telstar features a blue and green burst poplar burl top on a single piece, cherry stained mahogany body. The body is chambered to reduce weight and sculpted at the back for playability. The finish thermally stressed to produce a relicked look. A p90 in the neck position and a traditional tele bridge pickup combined with Bill Lawrence 5-way switch wiring produces a wealth of tone options. The flamed maple neck has a 25.5 inch scale length.

Body

The Ice Telstar is reminiscent of the classic Telecaster. The body is made from a single piece of mahogany with a poplar burl cap and ivory 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 poplar burl cap is stabilised with epoxy, sanded, and then stained with a green blue burst to emphasise the beautiful figure. The mahogany behind the f-hole is stained and finished before fitting the cap. The sealant is cyro-treated to produce a crackled ice-like effect of the polyurethane sealant. The body is then finished with a durable clear polyurethane.

Neck

This guitar has a flamed maple neck. The truss rod access hole is decorated with aged copper leaf. Eccentric circle metallic rod fret markers with epoxy fill 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 neck has 21 frets and uses the standard fender scale length of 25.5 inches or 647.5 mm. The neck here is treated with a polyurethane finish to protect the fretboard and provide a silky feel to the neck.

Pickups and Hardware

The Telstar-ice features pickups from Iron Gear as standard. The neck pickup is a P90 and the bridge pickup is from the twin II series. The neck pickup produces a beautiful clean sound, and the bridge pickup gives a characteristic tele-twang. A tradditional 3-way switch is installed to select the pickups. The volume control is a push pull potentiometer that allows the additional windings of the bridge pickup to be engaged for a high output boost to the sound and generate some real filth. The tone potentiometer controls both pickups.

A Gotoh top-loading bridge provides excellent control of intonation with style. The Gotoh bridge has 3 brass saddles that allow good intonation of each string.
