FLAME MAPLE TOP
The lightweight and resonant chambered two-piece body is crafted from roasted ash and flame maple—high-end appointments that add elegance to this guitar.
For versatile tone, we combined a custom vintage-overwound Tim Shaw-designed single-coil bridge pickup with a fat-sounding ShawBucker 1T humbucking neck pickup.

Staggered-height tuning machines provide the correct break angle at the nut for better contact and clearer tone.
Combining classic aesthetics with modern performance, the vintage-style Tele bridge has three compensated steel saddles for pin-point accurate intonation.
