This is the Tele version of the Custom Classic Strat listed. This Tele was owned by a Nashville recording artist and has been babied for the past 8 years. When we heard about Trans Blue we were thinking a refinish might be in order but hey, it's real nice.
Topping this very unique finish is a stunning birds-eye Maple neck with nice big frets - bend-O-rama! The electronics really set this Tele apart; the two outside switch positions that select bridge or neck pickup individually stay the same. But position 2 (both pickups together) wires the pickups in SERIES rather than parallel (standard wiring on a Tele). This produces a thicker, meatier sound, while still retaining the recognisable characteristics of a Tele. Position 3 on the 4-way switch provides the normal parallel wiring of both pickups.
Recently the Custom Shop has been offering this in an S1 switch. In addition it is important to note the 180 degree spin on the Vol/Tone switchplate that allows for more ease of Vol/Tone control while playing. Lastly the tone knob on this custom Telecaster, when turned fully clockwise (up) clicks into a locking position that bypasses all capacitors in the tone wiring, providing a raw, unaltered 100% signal which is very bright and cutting edge Tele-twang. This is the Tele-est sounding Tele we've heard from the Custom Shop.
