This thing has some serious mojo. It's an amazing player's guitar. The TL-62 is modeled after an early 60's telecaster with the rosewood fretboard, C-shaped neck, screw-like saddles, and flat-top knobs. I believe the color was originally white and because it's nitrocellulose lacquer it has aged into a beautiful buttercream yellow.

7lb 6oz

Recently setup at Champlin Guitars by Dave Doucet, who also swapped out the pickups and replaced a flaky selector.

The pickups were replaced because the old ones, which sounded great, are microphonic so any accidental tapping comes through really loudly. The new pickups are Custom Shop '51 Nocaster pickups. The old ones are included inside the case the new pickups came in.

The finish is aged with some scratches and dings to be expected of a guitar its aged that is actually played. I've marked it as "good" condition in the ad because it's wonderfully playable. The action is lower than I'd like, I decided not to adjust it since I've decided to sell it.
