    SOLD TO A FELLOW TGP MEMBER
    I make a handful of guitars a year and I made this one from the ground up for myself. Has been one of my personal guitars. No expense was spared and has the best stuff on it available. Excellent condition- Just normal play wear.
    *Light Weight Hand picked Alder Body with a real(no veneer) thick Flame Maple cap- very resonant and alive sounding
    * Trans Black Satin Finish
    *Hand picked Allparts Roasted Flame Maple Neck(has excellent flame figure on it).10'' radius, medium/tall frets. 1 5/8 nut width, very comfortable C profile (.84-.94) Has been leveled,crowned,polished, and fretboard edges rolled. Has a super smooth satin finish. *Im making a maple/rosewood board neck right now that I could swap out if the roasted neck inst your thing*
    *Real Bone Nut
    *Aged nickel hardware- all the best quality hardware- Kluson, gotoh,switchcraft, etc.
    *Has reverse angle tele bridge on it(gives it more of a piano type attack on the wound strings and makes the high strings less tinny sounding, gives them a bit more body and warmth). I much prefer this over the standard tele slant but a traditonal slant bridge will fit also.
    *MojoTone Quiet Coil Broadcaster pickups
    *MojoTone Vintage Taper Pots
    *Reverse tele controls with traditional switching- vol,tone,3 way
    *Right at 7lbs on my scale
    Guitar plays and sounds Amazing! Rings out like a bell and is very loud acoustically. Id put it up against anything custom shop costing 3-4x much more. Feel free to reach out with any questions, be more than happy to answer them.

    Also, I can send some pics of other guitars iv built/building to show my work.

    SOLD
    Hardcase included
    I stand behind my work- if whoever buys it isnt 100% happy ill give them they're money back as long as they will cover return shipping and its in the same shape as it left me.

    Some of my favorite for sure. They are really close to the old Broadcaster pickups. Here is mojotones description:

    Our approach was very simple, to make a tele pickup with the exact same parts and materials as a vintage tele pickup, without the hum. Broadcaster “Quiet Coil™” tele pickups are passive and only use the same parts and materials found in original vintage 1950-51 Broadcaster tele pickups. Vintage spec 43 gauge coil wire, lower Gauss Alnico magnets, black fiberboard bobbins, and vintage cloth covered leads.

    No PC boards, batteries, stacked coils, or anything else associated with other hum-canceling pickups were used in our design. The result is simply the most pure and authentic tele tone possible, with absolutely no loss of true single coil tone. They are warm and articulate, with that extra output and midrange push in the bridge position, just like the original handwound Broadcaster tele pickups.

    NOTE: With all Mojotone “Quiet Coil™” pickups, you never have to worry about string spacing and radius issues, or the magnets pulling the strings out of tune, and you can bend the strings heavily without ever losing focus or sustain. All of this while achieving perfect single coil tone and absolutely no hum!

    Quiet Coil Design Features...

    -Consistent scatterwound coils for that handwound tone, sensitivity, and clarity.


    -Vintage formulated Alnico magnet cores with lower Gauss levels like an aged vintage tele pickup.

    -Vintage cloth covered leads for easy push-back soldering.

    -Matched resonant peak frequency, inductance, and resistance of a vintage single coil.

    -No routing modifications are required to fit shallow vintage routs like the taller stacked hum-cancelling designs.

    -Less than 10 parts are used to build the Quiet Coils. Like a vintage tele pickup, they are SIMPLE!

    Lots of demos online as well.
    Thanks, Ryan
