ASH BODY
ASH BODY

Strong and dense, ash is a longtime classic for electric instrument bodies. Notably resonant and sweet sounding, it’s characterized by clearly chiming highs, well-defined midrange and strong low end. It also features an attractive grain that takes lighter-colored finishes especially beautifully.

FLAME MAPLE TOP
FLAME MAPLE TOP

This Telecaster features the notably elegant high-end design element of a beautifully figured flame maple top.

GOLD HARDWARE
GOLD HARDWARE

Gold hardware imparts an especially elegant gilded look to this instrument—a pleasingly high-end appearance that isn’t overdone or ostentatious, but rather just the right touch of refinement.

LARGE "C" NECK PROFILE
