Telecaster Style Eco-Friendly Guitar


£185.00 UK Post Free 

This guitar body is made from salvaged timber, pieces of wood that were scavenged from a dilapidated greenhouse, some beech from a table and a piece from an old defunct chest of draws, all assembled, constructed and shaped in our rat infested shed in North Devon. 

This guitar has a five way switch and is wired up like a Stratocaster. The neck is from a new guitar and the scratch plate and control panel are reclaimed from older guitars. Fixing crews on scratchplate and control plate are from a 1970s guitar - natural road worn, rusty and very cool.  

Reused and reshaped, these discarded bits of timber gems have been given a new life. This means that the timber we use is now upcycled, repurposed and recycled.

Fender's Nashville Tele is a varriation on their timeless model the Telecaster.

The Fender Nashville Telecaster was upgraded in 1998 with a three-pickup configuration similar to the Stratocaster layout. The neck and bridge pickups were replaced with the hotter Delta Tone pickup system and the new middle pickup was the same "Texas Special" overwound single-coil pickup used in the Stevie Ray Vaughan model Stratocaste
