This is one of Waterslide's newest custom made T-Style guitars and it's all "Made in the USA." Waterslide refers to this one as 'Clarence' in tribute to the great Clarence White and his bender equipped Fender Telecaster.
This guitar features a lightweight swamp ash body with an aged '50s sunburst nitrocellulose lacquer finish that's been relic'd and aged. The whole guitar weighs in at 7lbs 8oz total so it's LIGHT for a bender-equipped guitar and balances well on a strap.
This guitar has a standard 25.5" scale length that sounds sweet & twangy with the Jason Lollar Gold Foils whether you're playing clean or distorted. The roasted maple neck has a medium C profile (.820 X .920) that's 1 11/16" at the bone nut with a 9.5" radius & 6105 frets.
The Lollar Gold Foil pickups are accurate recreations of the vintage '60s-era Teisco originals. They have a clear, round vintage voice that matches very well with Multibender and traditional Tele style construction.
Electronics include CTS audio taper pots, a 3-way switch, Sprague Orange Drop, cloth covered wiring and an Electrosocket jack. The vintage radio knobs for volume and tone controls have a cool DeArmond vibe that complements the GoldFoil pickups.
The Duesenberg Multibender is set up to raise the B and G strings up a whole step either together or independently. It works smoothly & accurately, is easily calibrated and the two included levers can be set up to either raise or lower the pitch of any of the six strings. You can also purchase additional levers to allow you to raise or lower other strings in addition to these two.
