Up for grabs is a fun guitar I picked up directly from Patrick at Waterslide. This is one of his more affordable albeit rare Rona models - specifically a Telebacker with a relic'd blue finish. While the neck and body are pre-fab imports, the electronics and hardware are real deal. The assembly and setup is consistent with the quality of the Waterslide guitars of which I've happily owned two.

This Telebacker features Pat's infamous choice of a Lollar Lap Steel Coodercaster pickup selection along with a Certano Bender assembly with B & G benders from David Certano in France. * The video linked here is the actual guitar before the Certano Bender was installed. Fun fact: This is the first guitar he installed a Certano on. I wanted something with benders to give it a try and I emailed Patrick just as he was receiving his first order from David. The guitar was already done, so it was just a matter of adding the Certano.

It's set up with 10s and comes with the case I received it in from Patrick. Any dings or scratches on the guitar are part of the original charm as it never left my home. It plays great, sounds amazing and the benders are really fun and easy to intonate when they slip. The allen wrench for it is included.

The ding on the lower part of the case snuck up on me. I store guitars in a climate controlled closet standing upright, so the strap button must have poked through. It's stable, but if you're handy you may want to to sure it up.

* Recently made known to me (as of 1.30.23) there's a rout for a neck pickup underneath the pickguard! HA! Check out the last pic.

This is a unique guitar I'm glad I took a ride with. Very cool possibilities. Ask all the questions. I'm happy to help you figure out if this guitar is for you or not.

I ship [really] fast and will take every precaution to ensure your guitar gets to you safely. I have the box it was shipped to me in and will pack it up real good!
