The Fender Custom Shop do some pretty special things and this is certainly one of them! A fresh take on an old classic, the Fender Custom Shop Artisan Caballo Tono Ligero - Koa Tele is a real head turner.
The majestic Tasmanian Blackwood Thinline body boasts a striking AAA Koa top, considered by many to be the pinnacle of guitar tonewoods. With its rich wood aesthetic and sweet, complex and crystal clear tones it is easy to see why players favour it. With a thin nitrocellulose lacquer you get nothing but natural tones from this beaut as nitro allows the wood to breathe and doesn't stifle the woods natural resonance.
A majestic 1-piece AAA Birds Eye Maple neck is topped with an AAA Rosewood fingerboard to make this guitar one massive tone wood dream.
A hand-wound Custom Shop '51 Nocaster single-coil bridge pickup provides classic Tele vibes while a TV Jones Classic Humbucker sits proudly at the neck. They complement each other perfectly for a balanced and dynamic tonal range packed with definition and clarity. With a reversed control plate rocking stacked 250k/500k volume pots, you can be sure both pickups are crystal clear.
Once again the Fender Custom Shop have produced an absolute winner!
