Now this is a strange beast, but it is one heck of a player let me assure you!
Someone named Jack Ramsey made this Tele copy, and it’s clear they wanted some very specific things to happen with it. The body is plywood and heavy, with chambers on both sides and F-holes shaped like the flames you might see on the side of a ’57 Chevy hot rod.
The neck is a gorgeous maple neck with a strange short headstock. Being that it’s short and the body is so heavy, the balance of this animal means you’ll never have to worry about a neck-dive as long as you live. The peghead sports a full set of mini Schaller tuners. The strings run under a retaining tree, over a pretty standard nut, and in to a strat-style fulcrum trem with a nice milled block.
Electronics-wise, this is a very interesting set-up. When it came in to the shop, one of the toggles on the cutaway was missing a nut. Both of the toggles were wired to be phase selectors for the two Schaller Humbuckers, which is a bit redundant, so we kept the bottom switch as a phase selector, and the top switch is now a coil tap for the neck pickup.
Couple all of that with a 3-way switch and volume and tone pots, and this little axe does the trick to be sure. Very cool sounds that range from plenty-of-twang to crunch-and-conquer. If you like strange teles, or oddball guitars in general, this may be for you.
Includes an OK but not phenomenal gig bag.
