A warm, singing tone is the perfect description for this Fender® Custom Shop LTD ED 50's Thinline Telecaster Relic in Faded Violin Sunburst. the Thinline Light weight (6 lb) Ash body is resonant and vibrant. It's very loud, even acoustically.
The classic set of hand wound Broadcaster bridge pickup with a Twisted Tele neck pickup gives this Tele quintessential tones. The hand wound Broadcaster bridge pickup has a nice bite with a touch of grit. It responds tremendously to tiny volume control changes offering a multitude of tones. The Twisted Tele neck pickup mimics a Strat neck pickup and retains it clarity even at higher gain settings. A little extra output in the neck makes this Tele great for the lead player looking for a fatter than average neck pickup tone.
The AAA Indian Rosewood Neck is large and features a Soft V shape, 9.5" Radius and 6105 frets. It is a very comfortable neck shape that is easy to play and fits well in the hand. The All Rosewood construction takes a little of that Maple snap n' pop out of the mix and replaces it with the ability to bloom and sustain for days. These Rosewood necks ring with a smooth, warm clarity that you just don't get out of any other wood.
This is a great all around guitar that can cover a large number of styles without breaking a sweat. It's also super light weight, thanks to the light weight Ash body used and the fact that it's a thinline body.
