    [​IMG]This is a custom made guitar modeled after Tab Benoit's 70's Thinline Tele.

    The guitar is new, but has been aged and relic'd to look old and feel like a well loved vintage guitar.

    The wood is ash for the body and maple neck with 100% genuine nitro-cellulose lacquer for resonance.

    This is being sold as a project. The pickups and pots are not wired. I figured someone would want to upgrade them so I didn't bother to wire them. The pots are CTS, 3 way switch & pickups are included, but I make no guarantee if they work or how they will sound. They are generic pups and I'm not sure where they came from.

    This is a custom made guitar and is not an actual Fender.

    I believe the neck is considered a chunky c shape. It is a fat neck that fits nicely in the hand. The edge of the fretboard has been hand rolled for a nice worn in feel with no sharp frets.

    The radius is pretty flat, perhaps an 10 inch radius but I'm not sure.

    The guitar weighs 7.2 lbs.

    $395 shipped and paypal'd.
