  • Schaller Guitar Strap Locks and Buttons

PHYSICAL CONDITION: Excellent- This guitar has been beautifully "reliced." Schaller Guitar Strap Locks and Buttons have been installed on the body and the leather guitar strap. The case has nicks and small tears but the inside is spotless, overall, everything is in excellent condition.

WORKING CONDITION: Excellent- This guitar plays phenomenally, with all the immediate "spank" feel that make Teles so lively to have in your hands. It should be noted that the bridge pickup is a bit sensitive to any physical tapping on the enclosure or bridge. This is common among Telecasters and has to with the pickup's magnetic field interacting with the metal base plate & bridge. This contributes to a Tele's typical signature tone. 

The neck pickup has the classic "tone rolled down" sound. Great for bass accompaniment on its own, but really brings out some lovely tones on the middle setting. Fantastic guitar overall!
