Telecaster, the iconic guitar that swept the world in the early 1950s is still, six decades later, a very prominent and actual guitar. Generations upon generations of guitarists have honed their skills, performed and recorded with a Tele, but only chosen few ever got their own signature model. James Burton is one of them and his Tele comes with a solid, single cut body made of basswood. This model is offered in three color options: Blue Paisley Flames, Red Paisley Flames and Pearly White. All come in gloss finish. Bridge section on this model is equipped with a hardtail bridge with six adjustable saddles and string-through construction. Three single coil pickups are controlled through master volume, master tone and three-position blade switch. U-shaped maple neck is bolted and topped with a 21-fret maple fingerboard.
