FS: Barncaster (Warmoth/ Fender Esquire type

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Specs:

This is a new build. New Parts.

Warmoth 0ne piece stupid light Ash body. Bady had been subjected to many years of weather hazards and exposure here at the ranch for authentic aging.

Warmoth Pro Neck. 24.75 scale. Light Flame maple, rosewood fingerboard. SS medium jumbo frets. Bone Nut. Clay dots. 10/16 compound radius. Modern 60's carve.

Ping Vintage modern tuners. Fender 6 saddle tele bridge. Warmoth B/W/B pickguard. Wilde/ Lawrence Tele L280 pickup. CtS pots. Switchcraft parts.

6.5 lbs. Stupid light.

Ultra Thin Nitro Lacquer on Neck, Body rubbed and polished.

Aged Neck and body.

Three way switch~ Vol., Volume and tone, Volume cocked Wah tone.

I am not a Tele guy, but I do enjoy building them. I built this out for a type of person that like his Gibsons (scale length) but wants an Esquire/ Tele / JR. type.

It is very spanky, growls. the cocked wah is very vowel vocal like (Mick Ronson).

Action is very low atm.

No case, but I do have a vintage leather type gigbag for it.

$1150.  trades? an Explorer type.

Yup.  No more taking off the neck to adjust a truss rod on old Fender style guitars.  That side adjustment is long overdue.

That's a great looking guitar and I am definitely interested in a barncaster but prefer the longer scale and two pickup arrangement. Great job and such a looker!
