The highly sought after "Telemaster" shape will once again come into production by Fender, with a limited edition 25-piece run to be made.
It is the first time that the shape hasn’t been made by the Custom Shop, and will be introduced at a slightly more accessible price point of around US$1500. The run will be exclusive to Make’n Music in the United States, and all 25 guitars will be in the butterscotch blonde finish.
“Ever since the first official Fender “Telemaster-style” electric guitar was ordered by Make’n Music back in 2005 and delivered in 2008, this unique Jazzmaster / Telecaster Hybrid design became an instant classic – Coveted by Offset lovers everywhere,” says Make’n Music.
“It has long been our hope to bring this traditionally “Custom Shop only” offering to USA production for a more player friendly price point. We couldn’t be happier with how they turned out!”
The guitar features a Custom Shop Twisted Tele single-coil pickup in the neck position and a vintage-style Custom Shop Telecaster single-coil pickup in the bridge position, medium jumbo frets, a maple neck, a three-way pickup selector and volume and tone control. Here's to hoping we might them in Australia soon.
