Here comes another unique and tasty Telecaster that has been recrafted from Ralph & Sandy's Custom Shop., It's part of our " JUDGE SERIES" it has been freshly upgraded with only the finest components, in a one of a kind offering with "Seymour Duncans Tapped tele TONE configuration". This brand new guitar has the best of, Fender USA, Seymour Duncan,CTS,CRL components in a configuration that is just as unique as the player who'll decide to purchase it this week. This Tele has so many features that it will take some time to show and describe everything you need to know.

And before going any further I must emphasize that this is an auction for the resale of a previously owned (but unused) guitar with changes and upgrades. I am sure that the good people of Fender Musical Instruments would want you to know that this guitar does not come with a warranty from Fender, since it is previously-owned (although unused) and has been "repaired" with an amazing set of upgrades.

This Telecaster is Fully Warranteed by my shop to the original purchaser for 2 years free of charge for parts and labor.

The JUDGE series of guitars represent a tremendous value, we have come up with a fresh line of components and configurations that should satisfy even the most "Tone Hungry" guitar players. From B to G benders, Nitrocellulose finishes, Urethane finishes 1 piece bodies and various tone woods, F hole thinline hollowbodies to new control systems and special paint schemes your likely to find something in the breed that will satisfy your needs. Each guitar is likely to be somewhat different than other guitars you have seen in the past.

Our listing today is most certainly a TONE monster with its Seymour Duncan tapped tele pickup system. It also sports our NEW Belly Button blue Paisley finish. I can do all sorts of colors in Paisley and without the huge wait that you may have heard about somewhere else. I will be listing many available colors and options for these finishes on my website. I am currently updating the website with many of our new options and ideas, Be sure to have a look you may see your dream guitar in the making.


Our New Paisley finishes are simply beautiful ! I have been developing our pattern for the last year and I belive that I have a the best Paisley finish to be had. There are many more finishes in the works and you will be seeing more of them as they are available. I have to say I worked hard to show you the shine on these finishes and my camera skills, have fell short doing that. The pictures do NOT do the finish justice ! But rest assured you will be very happy with what I have achieved with these finishes.

Now for some good news ! This Belly Button blue F hole model for October will be sold at discounted pricing, If you want a Paisley finished Telecaster, Grab one now as they will return to the regular pricing after the sale of the next two offerings.



This guitar is ready for immediate shipment today !

Now that the disclaimers are out of the way,

this is a really fine guitar for the player who is looking for quality, value,

and a Mountain of tone and playability.

There are alot of high resolution photos to load so please be patient and allow them to pop in to view.

The foundation of this Telecaster is an Custom Built Swamp Ash Hollowbody. . Ash has been in use on Fenders line up since the 50s.

This Swamp Ash hollowbody was built right here in my shop to our exacting specifacations for tone and weight !

It takes more labor and time to seal the Swamp ash body for our Paisley finish, But the tonal benefits are greater

The very best pieces are light and porus, They posess excellent tones and resonance

From Albert Lee to Brent Mason & Brad Paisley the choice of tonewood has been Swamp Ash


You may have noticed by now that I offer my Paisley finishes with a matching pickguard.

It's is indeed alot more work than simply Installing the cheaper acrylic guard, but I feel its a more Classic loo
