Masterbuilt WR Custom Telecaster, Arcane pickups, birdseye top, excellent

  • Price:$2184.05

here is a great example of masterbuilder william raynaud's work.  this is a custom built tele, birdseye maple top on alder, with a maple neck and rosewood board and matching headstock.  the guitar is gray or tansluscent black in color, although it has some brownish highlights in it as well.  this is wr custom shop guitar number 0004.  william uses arcane pickups and these sound fabulous; i'm a 60s-70s rocker, primarily, and they can nail joe walsh's funk 49 without issue.  i am the original owner and was so impressed upon receiving this guitar from william that i had him build me another tele, and then bought one of his strats as well.  i then sold 4 of my andersons, my suhr, my wayne, and most of my gibsons as i no longer played them.  these are excellent instruments and i invite you to visit the wr guitars homepage for more information on this builder.  i find his necks to be comparable to tom anderson happy mediums, if not a tad slimmer.  this guitar weighs just over 8 lbs, i'd guess.  not near as heavy as your favorite lp, of course, but a solid professional instrument that will last practically forever.  this particular guitar went relatively unplayed as i had two other wrs, and its condition demonstrates that (please see pics.)   i swore i'd never sell this guitar, but with the economy as it is, i can only afford to keep so many guitars around the house.  best to find this one a good home where it doesn't have to compete for attention!  guitar comes with a g&g hard case, and the coa signed by william raynaud.  i ship to the lower 48 states, continental us (free with bin), and accept paypal.  please email me with any questions or offers, see my other listings, and thanks for looking -
