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 Ash body is finished in a lush Light Relic 3-Tone Sunburst, 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.
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.
