arnosolo's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Mojo and its"

Fender Custom Shop 2012 '61 Relic Custom Telecaster
Tele Custom Shop, super finishing and binding makes the originality of custom Tele.
Twisted Tele pickups specific.
Vintage guitar in mind, with the Mojo but without the modern conveniences (no locking tuners, no noiseless pickups, etc).

UTILIZATION

Quite late innings, varnishes, profile C, very nice especially for the game thumb on top. Very light guitar (ash body)
For the rest, it's very classic Tele. Purchased impeccably set, great sustain, easy to play.

SOUNDS

Magic, especially the neck pickup: the twang of the Tele with a little more roundness and warmth somewhere between TV and strat. Plus a fairly high level of output (for a tele, it is not in EMG) which allows cruncher amp (Marshall JVM) on the clean channel, in short, happiness.
The bridge pickup is sharp without being garish, well-defined clear sound with distortion, with a good level of output to cruncher amp again. But I play mostly on position 2, which adds a little lower midrange and below, top for rhythm.

OVERALL OPINION

Played for 6 months, this has become my number one, a lot of character. Chosen after trying quite like Tele (G & L, Fender Custom shop other ...). Bought in NYC, thus substantially cheaper prices FR.
Expensive, but for which the budget is well worth it from my point of view.

Fender Custom Shop 2012 '61 Relic Custom Telecaster
Manufactured and reliquée the Fender Custom Shop. Fixed bridge, string through, and double bridge = sustain ...
It takes great tuning (if you know the ropes up correctly ...). Vintage mechanical ideal. This is a guitar to play 10-46 in standard tuning. I tried other combinations, that I did not like ... Pickups: twisted TV, they do not buy, they are only supplied with the Custom Shop Tele ... a pure delight (I fucked a guy with a Les Paul Standard the other day ^ ^). Otherwise lightweight ash body chosen. Maple neck selected. Key dark palissande Indian ... ^ ^

UTILIZATION

Perfect inning. Warning 21 boxes ... But this is what makes it jouabilté and accuracy ... Dunlop 6105 frets ... a must in my opinion ...

SOUNDS

I use it in blues and rock. Sometimes I slip into the metal, but this is not my thing. But it handles well I think! The sound is slamming but when this little trick is in the midrange that makes it not too slamming like other Telecasters.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had a year when I change guitar every 3-4 months. I think it sums up. And I'm not ready to let go! I've had guitars but this one is over. Even Gibson R9 did not "beat"
