Spec Sheet
Detemple 1-off TELE-GIB      Prototype!

The COOOOOLEST Detemple I’ve had…and I have had 10% of all he has ever made…over 50 at this point.  Let me tell you…nothing touches a Detemple for overtones in a F-style guitar.  Maybe it’s the way Michael mates necks & bodies during the build process.  Maybe it’s the way he has the tightest neck-to-body connection I’ve seen.  Maybe it’s the large necks and flame maple?  Maybe the 1-piece bodies from select light woods.   Maybe it’s the hand shaping?

Michael isn’t just a world class luthier..he is also a world class player who has been on stage touring with some all-time greats.  It’s one thing to be a builder…one thing to be a player…but a man who has done both at world class levels brings another dimension of know-how to the table.

Such is the case with this one-off Tele-Gib “Jeff Beck” tribute comissioned by a friend of mine.  OHHHH it is a nice one.  Has that nice bottom end snap you lust for in a great tele….has that light weight you wish your LP had…..has that wonderful soft V neck you always lusted after.   This guitar just shined through every one of my vintage and modern amps in the library.   You like gain…come at it…..I threw a Bogner Twin Jet at it and it blew away my supposed ‘shred’ guitars.  Princeton Reverb….lush spanky cleans …nice underwond pickups that don’t color or over-push the amp.

New this was $9400 .   SAVE THOUSANDS plus the wait
