Fender Custom Shop Dale Wilson Masterbuilt Thinline Telecaster

  • Sale
  • Regular price $4,235.00

Well this guitar is just badass!! This semi-hollow masterpiece was built by Dale Wilson. The thinline ash body features a 3-tone dark tobacco sunburst, closet classic nitro finish with some checking, single F-hole, tortoise pickguard and double tortoise binding; all of which contribute to its strong vintage vibe. 

Twin TV Jones Powertron pickups are controlled by a three way toggle switch and a master volume and master tone control. The bridge is a hardtail bridge with six vintage saddles and string-thru body design. All hardware is slightly aged chrome.

The dark tinted mahogany neck has a very comfortable large-C shape (.875-.950) and is topped with a dark rosewood fretboard featuring 21 Jescar 6100 frets, mother-of-pearl dot inlays, 9.5 radius, and bone nut with 1.65 nut width. The black painted headstock and vintage tuners further enhances its look.

This guitar is freaking rad and blurs the lines between Fender and Gretsch. The combo of the Thinline body and the TV Jones PUPs give this guitar a fat sound with round and woody deep tones in the neck position and thick lead tones from the bridge. A great jangly tone is available in the center toggle position. Unplugged, the sound is rich and vibrant. Hard to capture in photos, this guitar has some gnarly finish checking that you'd expect from a Masterbuilt. 

Like all guitars that come through Eastside Music Supply, we've given this one the business and made sure the frets are level and she's got a spot on setup. She'll ship lightning fast in the included Fender G&G case, with the COA, strap, cable and paperwork.
