The venerable Telecaster with a Bigsby B5 Tremolo. What more could you want? Fender has come out with this Fender® Custom Shop LTD Twisted Tele Journeyman Relic in Wide Fade 2 Tone Sunburst with Bigsby and boy is it fun to play!
The hand wound Twisted Tele pickups are excellent. Slightly hotter with a crisp highs and punchy mids. The bridge pickup really sparkles. Good twang for the country play but the grit and bite really makes this more of a blues/rock guitar. The hand wound twisted tele neck pickup and creamy and smooth. Lows are clean and clear. Highs are nice and warm. Classic Tele controls of a Master Volume, Master Tone and 3 way toggle are present to grant you immediate access to al the tones you'll need!
The 10/56 V shape neck has a little beef to it. The V shape is comfortable and sits well in the hand. 6100 frets and 9.5" radius makes a fast and easy guitar to play. The neck has a full feeling V to it, not as chunky as a Nocaster neck but not as slim as a 60's C.
The very smooth Bigsby B5 trem is perfect for light vibrato or dips. The Automotive Look of a Bigsby certainly fits on a Telecaster perfectly. The added chrome and nickel accents are undeniably cool!
