She has just arrived with his sister rosewood.
No indication of source.
Channel maple fingerboard, satin varnish, C well rounded in the leg, very similar to my harley Jazzmaster.
The frets are fairly thin, 21, and well laid / finished so no extra work. Always better than nothing.
6 Fixed bridge bridges such strat, strings through the body. 2 wilkinson pickups (alnico from Toto) strat without buzz in position 2.
The body is beautiful, it is a double binding therefore quite uncomfortable compared to a vintage type.
Everything is very well done (it is very far from F. .. mexico) and inspires confidence.
Unlike her sister rosewood prinz weighs the dead ass, it looks like a les paul it surprises.
If Ben is a Tele so not so bad ergonomics level casually.
The sound is rather empty "inside" and hot / severe, and weaker than her sister.
Connected (Ibanez tvr5) this is not the usual plan Tele.
Finished smooth neck pickup here is sharper and louder, more accurate too. Balanced in the spectrum but not soft. The tone is less successful than that of rosewood but is more or less usable (early in the race you get a fixed-wah kind of fun).
The acute against micro is less incisive than typical tele, and lacks a bit of consistency.
This is normal for strat pickups actually.
The two together is funky of course, but more acid than usual and downright a feast for the rhythmic Kiss f (no, not Gene Simmons and co!)
She is on a hit, I probably will change the pickups for warmer / consistent but that's just my usual habit.
I dreamed of these teles (rosewood and prinz) rare, and I jumped at the chance, you can do so given the quality of execution / assembly.
Both have taxed me not even 300 roros it's just Christmas in April!
I'll update of course, better than no information ...
