Product description

In the shop we have an awesome Jerry Donahue Signature Telecaster from Fender in Transparent Crimson!

This signature telecaster was made in 1997 in the Tokai Gakki factory in Japan! Instruments from this factory and era of Fender are renowned for their superior craftsmanship and quality parts. This tele is no exception! This signature is built to the specs of Jerry Donahue's main tele, sporting a 52' V-shaped neck, 52' tele bridge pickup and an Alnico Strat pickup in the neck position! Double bound with aged cream binding and equipped with vintage style tuners, knurled knobs and vintage style bridge plate add to its vintage appeal.

This instrument is on consignment by the original owner. The guitar has had upgraded brass saddles installed from RS Guitarworks and a new synthetic bone nut cut. (original saddles are in the case) There is light wear to the guitar, pictured; a couple small knicks and light buckle indentation on the back, as this honky tonk machine is no stranger to a buckle. The headstock has also taken a small bump, pictured. Theres a small knick on the upper body of the face of the guitar and plenty of picking on the pickguard. The neck is in great shape, while there are light flat spots on the frets in the cowboy position on the high b and e. This is not to the point of needing fret work and is likely caused by Jerry style bending.Playability is unaffected with a proper set up!

This guitar has a vintage feel thanks to the V style neck, allowing you to stabilize your thumb and let your fingers fly while the 52' voiced pickups and unique 5-way switching provides vintage and iconic tones that are articulate during fast runs, quack, spank and swing when needed and can carry a rhythm section with ease. With a single string tree far from the nut, there is room for behind-the-nut bending, just like Jerry, to get those pedal steel style chords. It's really a fun guitar to play!

5-way switching is as follows: (position 1) a customized '52 vintage tone; (position 2) an out-of-phase sound with both pickups engaged; (position 3) both pickups combined in parallel for a nice rhythm sound; (position 4) both pickups wired in series for a fat, beefy tone; (position 5) the neck pickup by itself for a vintage Strat sound.
