made for Rick Parfitt (Status Quo). After getting the chance of closely to inspect his No.1 Telecaster.
He plays the most heavy set of strings I´ve ever used: 0.14 - 0.58 ! Thats why Rick did put the stop tailpiece on his old Tele.
The Standart bridge just can´t handle the force of his playing ability. Therefore I reinforced the neck with carbonfibre rods.
The Bridge pickup is a killer (he just plays the bridge pickup). I love this one myself, it´s the ultimate Rock´n Roll rythm guitar.

body and neck spanish ceder, top 12mm maple, ebony fretboard,
Turbotele bridge pickup, patent neckpickup (PAF 84 and Strat 62), lots of airbrush.
