MKII

Starting at

$ 1,500.00 CAD

The MKII is a take on the time honored Tele with a few alterations.

We shifted the upper horn to push the center of mass over the 12th fret making for a comfortable sitting and standing position and an overall "balanced" feel. This also allows for a more pronounced neck pocket which is carved with a very soft heel to mimic a neck thru design.  The lower cutaway was cut deeper to give full access to the 24th fret and with just enough of a horn to make for a comfortable sitting position. The simple arm bevel was done with a chamfer bit keeping that "slab" look but with the practicalities of ergonomic playing in mind.

The neck profile of the MKII has a C profile with 20.5mm @1st fret tapering to 22mm@ 12th making it a bit slimmer than a modern Fender but still chunky enough for a "vintage" feel.
