I've owned 4 Frasers now, 2 strats and 2 Teles. Look up Fraser Guitars and Fraser Guitar Owners groups and check out the videos. Look up Dean Fraser as a master luthier. These guitars are consistently amazing. I say this having also owned Fender Custom Shop, Don Grosh, Suhr, Tom Anderson, Gerard Melancon and more.

I'm offering this very special guitar for sale to fund my own custom build. It's a one of a kind, commissioned as an AC/DC + Prince tribute. Dean usually doesn't build thinline teles but did this one by special request. He also CUSTOM MACHINED and aged all the aluminum hardware you see on the guitar (other than the obvious Gotoh locking tuners, which he reliced). I texted Dean on this and he said there'll never be another build like this, it coincided with his personal "silver bullet" Tele so the machining aspect just worked out. Oversize upside down "Hendrix" headstock another cool feature. The neck is thin, modern C, and the SUPER JUMBO frets are outstanding. Pickups custom would be Dean to spec, this is a guitar with a unique vibe.

I have dozens of photos from the original build process that I'm happy to send, and actually encourage you to see. Guitar will have a fresh setup with 9s and medium low action from Dana at Bayou Guitarworks in Hammond, LA.

The original Fraser case is gone buy it will ship in a nice Kramer hardshell that fits it perfectly.

Please ask questions and ask for more pics, I'm happy to send them. This is a collector's piece but also a player's guitar from a fantastic builder and I've priced it accordingly.

Because I'm limited to 10 photos I've put what I think are a decent assortment but I'm happy to answer any questions AND send you as many photos as you want, guitar and/or case.

Shipping costs are on the rise, and my shipping price covers box and materials, AND Reverb's mandatory insurance which will run around $60

Please note that I list all my for sale items across multiple platforms (Facebook Marketplace, gear page, a few bulletin boards, and by word of mouth among my guitar buddies and at jams). Obviously, my Louisiana peeps have an advantage buying locally, but Reverb is an amazing marketplace and I price my items competitively. I entertain reasonable offers and try as hard as I can to be a straight shooter and describe items and answer questions accurately and honestly. If you're watching this guitar and it suddenly vanishes, I may have temporarily deleted the listing if I've agreed to show the guitar to someone locally in the immediate future. Usually someone willing to drive to Baton Rouge to see gear is legitimately prepared to buy but if such a deal fall through I’ll reactivate the listing and it should come up again in your follow list.

Thanks for looking,

Again, Feel free to ask any questions.
