If you're like me, you have always drooled over George Harrison's Custom Rosewood Telecaster he used for the Let It Be and Abby Road sessions.  You can get a faithful Custom Shop reproduction of this icon for north of $5000, or... you can get something very close for much less!

This is a custom E11even Guitars "Darkhorse" T style.  We wanted to build something that was of quality and similar to the original guitar but keep the price as reasonable as possible.  This is a challenge due to the rising cost and semi-protected status of Rosewood nowadays.

The body is a beautiful USA made traditional T style Alder with real Rosewood veneer on the top and back.  This is a good compromise to keep the cost down as a solid Rosewood body is hard to come by and really big bucks.  Alder sounds fantastic, is lighter weight and the veneer gives it the authentic look of real Rosewood.  The finish is a clear gloss poly. It is fitted with a 8 screw 3 ply Black pickguard with no neck pickup screw holes and a trussrod notch like the original.

The bridge is genuine Fender and the pickups are Fender USA Pure Vintage 64 to stay true to the tone of what was in the original.  The pots are CTS 250K with a .047 Orange Drop tone capacitor and a CRL 3 way selector switch all wired with Gavitt vintage style push-back wire.  The hardware is Crome vintage style with an E11even Guitars Custom Shop USA engraved neckplate.

The neck is a USA luthier made 1 pc solid Rosewood with C profile (a little flat in the center along the skunk stripe), 21 jumbo frets, 9.5" fretboard radius, heel trussrod adjustment and bone nut.  The frets have been leveled, crowned and polished and the neck has no finish but has been oiled with natural oils.  It's a very comfortable neck that is silky smooth with no tackiness you might get with a lacquer or poly finish. It is fitted with genuine Schaller Germany vintage tuners like the original and a Kluson string tree.

The guitar weighs 8.0 lbs and is strung with GHS Boomers 10-46 gauge strings and includes the brand new Fender Deluxe padded gigbag shown.  Will ship insured ground with a signature required for delivery.
