Hey folks!

Selling a very unique tele, made by Rick Kelly, NY. It`s made of old pine, both neck and body. The neck is without a truss rod, very fat profile, medium jumbo frets, nitro finish. Snakehead headstock. Skim top finish on the body, shellac finish.
Pickups are SD Antiquities. Glendale hardware.

These guitars are really something special. Extremely resonant, and it plays/feels completely unique compared to my other telecasters.

I think the wait time for a similar guitar is quite long these days.
No fretwear at all. It`s basically "as new".

Get in touch for more pics/info! Thanks for looking!

Asking $2150 shipped and pp`d.
(Hardcase included)

The weight is 6.8 lbs. A great weight imo, I don`t like them too light.
Thanks!

Do you know where the wood came from?
No...really...I think Rick is very specific about where he sources his wood.
He made some guitars with wood from a famous speakeasy in NYC, Chumley's, that I used to go to. It would be cool having a guitar from my old stomping grounds.
