Fender '72 Tele Custom, crafted in Japan 1997-00, refinished in satin white. The Tele Custom is one of those models with a whole stack of natural swagger. This one, like many others, started life out in the traditional black-on-black finish combo. A previous owner has refinished the body in a matte off white. It's a fairly tidy job, obviously intended to wear quickly to a relic look. The reverse tux look against the golden syrup maple board and headstock looks awesome; it's a cool balance of streetsmart attitude and upmarket slick. The neck is a slim and friendly affair; easy to play and lovely to behold. The combo of a Wide Range humbucker and the classic Tele bridge position single coil offer a little extra beef and gravy than the classic two-singles setup; it's a handy one-two punch and makes this a very effective option for punk and classic rock stuff. If you could wear a jacket with a heap of buttons and a big belt buckle on your pants while playing it to inflict the necessary wounds to take the look to the next level, that'd be a glorious thing.
