2011 Fender American Telecaster Electric Guitar (w/Fralin P90)

How about that? A silver Tele with a blackguard on a Fralin P90 at the neck? Yesssssss. Customers in the shop concur, too -- this one sounds excellent and handles like the quality, American-made Tele it is.

Last year I gave the guitar a light level/dress of the frets and installed the Fralin P90 (as well as routed the pickguard) for its owner. He's moving house and so the guitar's now for sale in the mixup. It's been stable since I last worked on it and it's still playing just as well.

It's clean, too, with very little wear throughout.

The Fralin blends very well with the traditional twangy bridge pickup and on its own has a great, old-timey-jazz, rockabilly-rock, rootsy sound depending on how you play it and what you put it through. It's very comforting and warm without being flabby.

Repairs included: (previously) a light level/dress of the frets, pickup install, and setup.

Condition notes: it's very clean (looks just "shopworn" at a glance) throughout, though the pickguard is probably a replacement and I've recut it for a P90 in any case. The neck pickup and guard are thus swapped but the rest of the guitar appears to be all-original. OH, except for the strap buttons which look like they're for locking straps.

It comes with: an original Fender hard case.
