Hand built in sunny California, the Xotic California Classic Series is all about tone. With only the very best, most acoustically resonant woods selected, each guitar is a hand built masterpiece. The latest addition to this incredible line up is the XTC1, and it does not disappoint!
A boutique take on the classic Tele shape, the Alder body is finished in a lush medium Relic Shell Pink, authentically aged; it looks fresh from the road. With a nitrocellulose lacquer coating, the body has space to breathe, allowing the beautiful, organic tones from each hand selected cut to really resonate. This little stunner also benefits from a matching headstock for an even more impressive aesthetic.
The necks on these are something really special, AAAA-Grade Flame Roasted Maple. With a Modern C Shape neck profile, 9.5" radius and Narrow Tall frets it feels comfortable and familiar. Gotoh vintage style locking tuners and a custom Xotic bridge deliver incredible tuning stability and intonation.
A pair of Xotic Raw Vintage TE singlecoil pickups delivers vintage Tele tone with a real punch and super clarity. Hand wound on site in LA they have a super wide tonal range with a really distinctive twang. The Raw Vintage pickups are a great feature of the Xotic California Classic XTC-1.
