What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Alder body Light weight with a wide tonal range
Rosewood fretboard Open, warm tone and smooth playing feel
Nitrocellulose lacquer finish Ultra-thin, strong gloss; preserves natural tone
Jason Isbell Telecaster single-coil pickups Specially voiced to Jason Isbell's satisfaction

Armed with blistering guitar chops, incisive lyrics and a powerful voice, Grammy Award winner Jason Isbell has emerged as a leading face of the Americana movement-a dynamic blend of traditional roots music and modern rock.

The Jason Isbell Custom Telecaster is visually striking-the Chocolate Sunburst pops against the cream double-binding of the '59-style Telecaster Custom body while Fender's Road Worn aging process gives it the look and feel of a well-used instrument. The vintage-inspired mid-'60s "C"-shaped maple neck and 21-fret rosewood fingerboard combines with the sparkling, fiery tones of the custom Jason Isbell Telecaster Pickups and the chicken-pickin' playability of the modified bridge to create a guitar that sounds and plays as a good as it looks.

I love Teles. I was without one and had been shopping the various models for a while. SO many choices - pickups, neck style/radius, S-1 or no, American, MIM, etc. I wanted an old school strat, brass saddles, no S-1, hot pickups and a slinky neck. People knock the 7.25" radius because they haven't played it. The neck on this thing is old school sweet, and you can totally bend the notes up the neck past the 12th fret, thinking the narrow tall frets help with that. Anyway, on with the review - this guitar is super smooth to play, can get incredibly hot and sassy if you want but can easily back off with a tweak of the volume and tone controls to clean up beautifully. Relic'd finish was on point and not over done, the thing just feels great in your hands and sounds even better. I personally believe this is the very best value in a Telecaster that Fender currently has to offer. BUY IT! Because Zzounds has the best return policy in the business if I've overstated anything, but if I'm lyin' I'm dyin' cuz this axe is IT!
