Prototype/Showroom model having several cosmetic flaws (which don't show up in the pictures very well because of the black finish, but they are there.)  Newly customized T-Rev guitars will list for $1950.  This guitar plays great and sounds awesome! Rebuilt this same Black Rose edition for a customer (SN, TR-10008) who loved this guitar but wanted one that hadn't been on the showroom floor.

Here at the Telecaster Revolution we're doing things a bit differently. I've been a Sound Engineer and a guitar player for a long, long time and after years of trying to find an electric guitar that didn't throw off my playing because of all the weird sounds I was hearing and a glaring lack of accurate responsiveness to my hand pressure, I finally decided to start customizing my own Telecasters!  Through experimenting, listening, gigging, and more experimenting I now have guitars that allow me to just play and enjoy what I'm hearing coming out of the amp!

On the surface it looks, mostly, like just another Tele but the MANY custom modifications make the whole guitar greater than the sum of it's parts! (Check out YouTube video demos for a full rundown of features and the wide range of, useable, tones this guitar will get, ALL from adjusting the knobs and the 4-way switch!! So important when playing in the context of a live band!)

Alder wood Tele Bodies:
  • Left Handed bridge on a right-handed guitar to mellow out spiky treble strings and give more edge to bass strings
  • Hipshot Bridge for tone and playability (with top-load string option)
  • Compensated, Offset Saddle pieces; Steele on strings 6-3 and a Brass Saddle piece on strings 1&2 (for the same reason as above)
  • Open Cover on neck pickup for clearer leads and balanced tonality with bridge pickup
  • Fender Texas Special pickups
  • Fully Copper Shielded pickup cavities and copper shielding around neck pickup
  • High Quality +/-9% tolerance CTS pots
  • Gavitt push-back wire
  • Variable Treble Bleed Circuit (custom dialed-in for each guitar)
  • Oak Grigsby 4-way Switch for Humbucker sound when pickups are connected in series in position 3
  • Control plate reversed for easier access to volume knob (getting you volume knob players back and forth to a WIDE RANGE of tones)
  • Chicken-head Knobs for "look-free" adjustment of volume and tone settings
  • Angled Switch Slot and Top-Hat Knob for accurate switching on the fly
  • Pure Tone Jack for increased signal transfer and secure connection
  • Electrosocket Jack Mount for no-failure jack connection
  • Large Strap Buttons for securing guitar strap without the need for strap locks that fail and beat up your guitar
  • Height and Angle of pickups are custom adjusted for each guitar to achieve the best balance of sustain, volume output, and musicality

Tele Necks:
  • Smooth finish for comfort and playability
  • 'Deep C' contour
  • 22 Stainless Steele, Medium Jumbo frets for long life and clear notes
  • 1 11/16" nut width
  • 12" Radius
  • 25.5" Scale Length
  • Hipshot Griplock Tuners: 16:1 gear ratio
  • Graphite Tone Ninja Nut
  • Custom "Fall-Away" fretboard for clearer notes and lower action
  • T-Rev custom neck plate with serial number
