„Caramel Fireball“ ------SOLD!--------- I´m building one without a B- Bender Price: €3500,00 as pictured with B-bender A light orange to gold burst is always a challenge. I needed a few tries to get the color and blending just right. I am pleased with the gradual blend of red-orange, yellow-orange to cream white. It wasn´t easy and took many steps with the airbrush to get it just right. Matching this very rare and costly white abalone was difficult and time consuming but I learned a bit from my „Golden Halo“. I started with a light 1,8 Kilogramm two-piece, resonant sounding pine body and a flat sawn, bright sounding, grade AAAA flamed Canadian maple neck with very strong and deep flames on all sides. I left this neck completely natural because the flames were already very dark and pronounced. This is one of the finest necks I´ve made. SPECS:All vintage 50´s tele measurements and thickness. The neck a vintage C with medium jumbo frets and 10 inch radius for those easy bends. I greatly rounded all body edges and contours to get a sleek look and feel. This also enables me to use less lacquer (combination of nitro cellulose and 2 component urethane) and much thinner coats for assured good resonance. You can actually see how thin the coats are in strong light. The outlines of the shell grain become apparent. This is good for the tone. Two more coats and the grain would be non-visible. I decided on less lacquer in favor of tone. Neck and bridgeplate are always hand-fitted. ´The necks fit snugly like they should.I really on my eyes because a template can easily be off whack resulting in poor string alignment. You´ll often see this effect on factory instruments. NO PLASTIC on any of my guitars. Putting plastic covers or pickguards on fine guitars is like putting vinyl seats in a Ferrari! I added a B-bender on this model. That makes it top of the line. I worked with the rarest of all abalone – white clear flamed abalone - painted and stained in my own process. How? This is my trade secret and it is very tricky. I had to hand pick and match this abalone to get a completely uniform reflective picture. I had to exclude the green and purple parts because they would ruin the orange color. The flames and reflection are very uniform and deep – again:stunning. This guitar barely needs light to „shine“. Under strong sunlight you can´t photograph it because it literally explodes like a mirror. After meticulous shaping and sanding I did a „wisp depth“ style airbrush on the sides and back and united the whole picture by airbrushing a very gradual caramel- orange -butterscotch burst. I loved the results. Deep orange -toffy caramel edges and wispy depth intensive hand painting on sides and back. The back sports an abstract fire and flame decore.The burst melts into the pure gold deep orange top to give it the effect of a transparent butterscotch. The shapes and figures are almost dreamlike and give the impression of depth and flame. The colors blend from a creamy light orange -golden yellow to a caramel orange. Highly figured white champagne colored top – stained and painted to bring out the butterscotch waves. A sparkle of gold, red,pink and yellow depending on the light reflection. The „depth“ of the wavelike flames is utterly amazing. It looks three dimensional in texture, and I, too this date still stare and can´t take my eyes off of it. My 30 guitar students regularly stare at this one. All my pickups are fitted by hand - meticulously - UNDER the abalone top. EXTRAS:Not many extras available. You already have three great handwound pickups all covered in matching abalone. A Jerry Donahue – Duncan bridge and two vintage strat pups for the mid and neck. This guitar already has the Fingertips Switching: Three miniswitches that enable 13 distinct sounds – the 5 sounds you get on a five way switch along with 3 more distinct and great sounding parallel sounds and combinations and more 4 fat and more powerful series sounds. 13 sounds altogether and all very fast and at your fingertips. This will turn this Tele into a Strat/Tele Killer. Ask me for a pricequote here. Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt! Zur Anzeige muss JavaScript eingeschaltet sein! I love 3 pickups on a tele and I simply cannot fathom why some so-called Tele purists shun that amazing middle pup. With 3 pickups I would definitely recomend the „Fingertips“ switching system.The sounds are more than worth the work. 12 distinct sounds :vintage to lead to fat. Four of these sounds are not available on any factory instruments! Please email me at Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt!

It is time consuming to install because there are more than 28 soldering joints as compared to 8 on a standard five way switch. Check out my Youtube demos! Controls are also fitted under the shell from behind! NO ugly metal plate. No discredit to Leo here(his work was the work of a genius) but he wanted a practical and not a beautiful guitar! I´m simply taking his design TWO steps further. All metal parts are gold plated including professional locking Wilkinson tuners Elecronics: Hand wound vintage style Alnico 2 and 5 Tele bridge pup. Vintage old fashioned Fender type ashtray bridge plate but with compensated saddles for the tradional vintage tele twang yet good tuning. String through body, for more sustain,naturally. I refuse to use a modern bridge plate because they don´t sound that twangy. Impression: There are many tele tones out there and tastes are always changing. The thinner old country tones are no longer that common. I admire players such as Brent Mason, Johnny Hiland, Albert Lee (on Tele), Vince Gill and Jerry Donahue for their clean sounds and I tend in these directions for inspiration. I strive for a very DRY fat sound and a pleasing tele twang with lots of sustain and rich overtones, just like you would expect from a fine handmade instrument with the best wood and materials. The neck is very comfortable and a pleasure to play. This is a guitar for the stage pro, serious collector or tele enthusiast looking for a “once on the planet” guitar. ​
