TC-X: Natural

The maple top and neck splices were chosen to match, both having mineral streaks and life to them. Deliberately characterful and ‘imperfect’.
 
Slimline at 40mm and 7lbs weight or slightly under. It’s light and lively, very comfortable to play. None of the hard slabbiness of a traditional Tele. The neck heel is almost ‘invisible’ to the hand, enhanced by the slimmer body.
 
The ’52 bridge pickup is lively and dynamic and balance perfectly with the neck Goldfoil. This has clarity and rich harmonics. The pickups happily take everything from clean through to fuzz.
 
The paint is 2k and has sunk slightly into the grain in some areas. This paint does not need to be super-thick, and it does sink over time.
