    '50S TELE® STYLE—RECYCLED AND REBORN

    A great guitar with a long history, and that's no small exaggeration—the body of the Limited Edition American Vintage '50s Telecaster Reclaimed Redwood is fashioned from reclaimed old-growth redwood. With antique wood reborn in musical instrument form, our versatile '50s Vintage Hot Rod design is a beauty to behold, with a humbucking neck pickup and single-coil bridge pickup for sound as compelling as the guitar’s look.
    FEATURES

    One-piece reclaimed redwood body
    Maple neck with vintage-style "D' profile and Limited Edition neck plate
    Compound-radius (7.25"-12") maple fingerboard with 21 narrow jumbo frets
    Wide Range Special humbucking bridge pickup, Custom Shop vintage-style single-coil Telecaster bridge pickup
    Four-way switching (includes series pickup configuration)
    American Vintage string-through-body bridge with three easily intonated saddles

    I kinda like it. I'm guessing it's probably pretty heavy, but it's pretty cool. The video on it sounds fantastic.

    Love it. I already have a Tele with a humbucker but that just makes me long for one with a traditional setup. I really don't want to buy another Tele so I just figured I'll take the hummer out and put in a single coil Tele pickup.

    Must test this when it comes out! Looks very similar to my Rosewood lite though

    It's exactly the same as the ash 50s Hotrod except for the body wood of course. I'm very fond of my ash version and was tempted by this but I'd want to pick and choose the body (grain asymmetry upsets me) and these are super limited, more so in the UK therefore nope ...

    Am I going crazy, or does that Wide Range Humbucker looks smaller than normal - like it is the same size as a regular humbucker?

    I keep thinking you could just use a dark dye on a pinecaster and get similar looks. For a fraction of the price. It is beautiful though.

    The reissue WRHs are paf sized. I like that because it makes swapping in a new pickup very easy if required.

    Probably one of the lightest Telecasters you will ever pick up. The humbucker, along with the series/parallel switching, gives this guitar some incredible range of tone. I absolutely love mine. Here it is...

    And no, stain + pine would not get you the look.

    Here's the ash equivalent just in case anyone's interested. It's a great design. Locking tuners, compound radius neck, 4 way selector, paf sized neck pickup, VERY light. I really wanted the redwood version too but couldn't swing it ...
