USA Fender body with a swamp ash (ash light) with a solid maple neck and maple fingerboard.
I changed the neck pickup a moment to put a P-90 at Bare Knuckle but finally I gave the original microphone because the P-90 came out too strong compared to the bridge pickup so it's a little unbalanced sound.
I rewired everything with the classic 60s and a condo Orange Drop. The original wiring has no interest and the book Fender guitar kit with the wiring for the switch to "modern" with the neck and bridge pickups that work together in the middle position.


Channel pleasant enough with thick C profile Jun characteristic of this time. Very easy to play, it is a joy.


The sound is excellent, we are never disappointed. Warning to manage the treble is a Telecaster so it can be quite sharp and lacking a bit of body sometimes.


Excellent tool that I have used for years.
A must for any rocker who wishes to obtain 60s/70s classic sounds.
