Hand made in Yanks, easel-style brass saddles three 50's, big maple neck maple fingerboard with 22 frets flamed. 2 microphones Joe Barden T-Style neck and bridge position. A 3-position selector, a volume knob and one tone knob: simplicity.
I put a 10 for quality of design is the Fender Custom Shop, no complaints.
The handle is not the original one on my Tele is a handle DNG signed, the case in Paris. It is .. but it is fucking beautiful! Super nice, good grip, it seems to have a log in the catches, it's weird, thick but not as comfortable on most Gibson. Access to acute is great, also the serious, all sounds, you can easily get the 10-42, you can even push the vice to a 10-52 so accepts the handle easily the set of strings! The sound is great with him as to what type of handle.
J'mets September 1 because the thickness of the handle can be confusing at first, you have to do mimine it, but once "tamed" is a delight!
The sound is that of a Telecaster guys! Snapping at will, bright highs are great, the bass are right, though by the time round, it has the great advantage over US reissue and have a very vintage sound. In crunch, the beast awakens, a range of sounds great! The Joe Barden are amazing, I never had the chance to test them before, but now I will not leave again, and I praised their sound as soon as I can! You can really do anything with these microphones, the sound is punchy, it looks like an SG at times, but with that extra feature to a Telecaster, it's the big advantage of these microphones, we can attack that sends large saturax guez-of the sea!
Styles in which it excels in my opinion: Country, of course, this is not the signature of the great Danny Gatton for nothing, a mere replica of the 50's Tele. The Rockabilly is fun with this guitar! But the style that I prefer to play the more I think is the old blues and greasy roots: ZZ Top.
Being perhaps the group that I idolize the most, it is not objective, but this machine is great throughout the pre-Eliminator with a config 'pretty basic. By adding specific equipment to the sound of the Reverend, you can attack without any problems.
My nails: a head lamp Orange Dual Terror bafflard with the PPC-212 open back of the same brand, a delay of at Boss DSD-3. And the famous Expandora home Bixonic (latest version), which is a reprint of the first pedal, but with the switches on the outside.
Need I say more? I think that says it all. We can do almost everything with the shovel, I did not test for everything that is metal, except for any Blues Rock led will we say to the Zakk Wylde, I do not know what it's worth in this case. Everything else is just great guitar, with its original colors and vintage tones give a unique character to this guitar. Well of course, where it is testicle when headphones for painful, and what pain! New, it is out of reach for most people, I had the great opportunity to find used, with a handle DNG luthiers ... I enjoy my happiness!
I am not objective, but I put a 9 because the price is really prohibitive, but given the quality of the shovel, the price / quality ratio is amply defended. And I do it again without hesitation that choice personally! You understood, I love everything about this guitar except the price.
