The Guitars





I am really not fond of Sunburst but that one looks great

A limited edition

In 2019 an Indigo Blue limited edition was released it looked a little less vintage by way of having a pearl pickguard. It had an Alder body but otherwise the same specs as above


Telecaster Hybrid 60s

Just like the 50s above the hybrid 60s is a compromise between Vintage looks and style and modern preferences. It comes in lots of really good colours and is quite a striking looking guitar. Non Vintage features are really just the radius 250mm, the medium jumbo frets and the same 4 position switch as the 50s.
