The Shadow - Blackout Telecaster Done

I'm very proud of this one.
This Telecaster has a Licensed Fender neck on a custom hand cut body.
Built new with a well played look and feel. Feel was very important on this one. I wanted the neck to look and feel 50 years old and play like an original neck from that time period plays.
It Does! and I'm very happy with the way she sounds too.

She's got 52 Tele RI neck by Mighty Might with a Tusk nut. Kluson Split shaft tuners and a Gotoh top loading Bridge. She's wired with a 4 way switch that incorporates the out of phase selection. The Black Nitro finish has been oil rubbed to create the flat black appearance.

But the best part about her is she plays real easy and sounds like a 52 Tele.
I'm going to try this again in another color... Maybe in the TV Yellow?

Stay Tuned.
