All the essential
features of a 1950's Telecaster have been built into these Telecaster
clones. Solid tonewood bodies with through body stringing and a vintage
chromed 3 saddle bridge help to maximise the natural sustain. A hot
open single coil pickup at the bridge is paired with a warm, bluesy
covered single coil pickup at the neck to give the breadth of tone
you'd expect from a Telecaster, selectable by the usual three way
switch with single volume and tone controls. The maple neck with its
characteristic skunk stripe inset has a modern 'C' section for better
playability over the 21 fret maple fingerboard. The headstock carries
no logo because we recognise that any name we choose is meaningless to
you. Instead, we leave the head unadorned so that you can customise it
to your own taste. We offer a choice of traditional body finishes -
Butterscotch Blond with a black pickguard like the early standard
models or the classic high gloss black lacquer with a white pickguard
found on later Telecasters. Manufactured and finished with considerable
care and skill, your guitar will be fully set up with light gauge
strings before it is shipped to you. If you prefer a different set up,
email us and we'll do our best to accommodate you.

The following sound
clips were recorded using
a Mesa Boogie V-Twin pre-amp on an Apple Mac running MOTU Digital
Performer. Other than trimming the sound clips to size and
converting them to MP3 format, the samples were not edited in the
digital domain. No reverb, echo, chorus or other signal
processing has been applied.....what you hear is the guitar through a
clean valve pre-amp. Apologies for the ineptitude of the

No, not a
lack of copper shielding, just some of the nice things people have said
about our guitars:
'nocaster' arrived today and I'm thrilled! I've been playing
for nearly 18 years, the past 10 or so professionally and this is one
of the best surprises I've encountered. I've wanted to buy a
Tele for a while but always seem to get distracted by shiny PRS's and
the like. I tried a MIM tele then an American
Standard and knew I'd love to get one. However, I decided
just to get a cheap Squier for fun and, maybe, to use as a 'relicing'
project. I ordered one from an online retailer but they were
out of stock (despite them showing as in stock on their site).
I did a bit of hunting on eBay, found your nocaster and
decided to cancel my Squier order.
your tele was so cheap I decided to bid on a MIM neck which was up for
auction - I assumed yours wouldn't be up to that sort of standard.
Fortunately I didn't win the auction 'cause the neck on yours
is awesome! It needs a little adjustment and there are a
couple of highish frets, but the fret finishing is FAR superior to the
MIM tele I tried recently. The MIM's selector switch knob
also kept falling off and the nut alignment was shocking! I
can safely say that yours fall between a MIM and the American Standard.
Forget Squier - yours are far superior.
also assumed I was going to have to replace the pickups but they seem
perfectly fine too. They're surprisingly quiet and the guitar
has incredibly versatile and 'useable' volume and tone controls.
All that's missing is the (controversial) Fender decal which
I'll be applying as soon as it arrives! I'm so glad you
recognised the market for an unbranded copy. I can assure you
that this guitar isn't going to be my candidate for a relic job - it's
just too good!
service was fantastic too. Speedy delivery, great comms and
very reasonable delivery charges. The only thing I would
suggest is having some more detailed photos on your listing.
I really wanted it to have a 3-ply pickguard and couldn't
tell from the pics what was on it. The headstock shape was
also a little hard to make out (maybe that's deliberate ;-) ).
I think you could have even more satisfied customers if it
was possible to see things in a bit more detail. I was quite
happy to take the risk based on your feedback 'though - and I'm glad I
wanted to let you know that I have now put the fender pups in the tele
and even if it was good before, it is just fantastic now.
It really is as good as anything from south of the border now.
for fun but so good I'll be using it
professionally!Awesome service! A+++
a quick note to say how impressed I am at the quality of the guitar, I
don't know how you can sell it and still make any money at that price.
I've built a few telecasters in my time and I'd struggle to buy a
'string through' body in butterscotch at that price. All in
all, I'm very pleased with the guitar and I'll keep looking to se what
else you may come up with in the future.
more I play this Tele, the more I like it and it really is super fast.
I might just get another one!
