An amazing find! This superb Yuri Shishkov Fender Masterbuilt custom shop Telecaster was recently bought from it’s original owner who never played it. Until last week it had sat in it’s case with it’s original strings on! It was a custom order for the original purchaser. The Fender Custom Shop guitars are the very very best that they have to offer, the Masterbuilt models take things to a new level. The entire guitar is built and assembled by one builder, in this case Yuri Shishkov.

The Telecaster is very light and extremely resonant. From the moment you pick it up you know it’s something very special, a lovely 60s style oval C neck which feels extremely comfortable. The sound from the hand wound custom shop pickups is that classic Tele vintage tone. It oozes that classic sound and is extremely satisfying to listen to. The thing I always love about these Masterbuilt models is the insane attention to detail on things like fret ends. The fret job and set up is superb! A really easy guitar to play, very comfy.

Today a brand new Masterbuilt NOS telecaster costs a minimum of £6000, as much as £7000 for a Relic! Not to mention a very long waiting time (over a year in many cases). This as new example is therefore priced extremely competitively at just £4499
