Fender Custom Shop 1959 Telecaster and Custom Shop Champ (10" speaker) Hand Selected

Fender Custom Shop

This matched set was hand selected by Baxter Clement (the owner) at the 2017 NAMM show and just arrived in our shop a few weeks back. We were thrilled when we saw and heard the pair over a year ago and even more blown away once the duo arrived to our shop. The Guitar is a resonant tone machine with a great resonance even unplugged. The grain on the wood is visible through the extremely light finish (requested by Baxter) and is an absolute joy to play. The balance between the two pickups is stellar with just the right amount of push in the bridge to allow a nice attack while the neck has the warmth of a strat. 
The custom shop built Champ is aged beautifully and has just the right amount of controls for our simple team...one, and that's all any of us needed. The 10" speaker gives this 100% hand wired amplifier a fullness that is often lacking in most champs we come across. We found that turning her up past 6 and using the guitars volume were all of the tone controls we needed to achieve multiple settings and flavors.
