■ ’50s experiment machine.
A telemaster who has enthusiastic fans in part as a child between telecaster and jazzmaster. In the latter half of the 1950s, I made this image in the form of specifications of the transitional period under the delusive setting that there was a body shape and a rose fingerboard experimental machine connected to the jazz master. Rose fingerboard neck adopted from jazz master to ash body reminiscent of telecaster. By saying that it is an experimental machine of body shape and finger board, the electronics system follows a general telecaster. Expression which is easy to hold and easy to play Telecaster may be perfect.
■ All-Nitrocellulose lacquer finish
The body color is “Deep Forest Blue Metallic”. Overlay the yellow clear layer on the blue metallic, finished in a deep green with a different impression depending on the viewing angle. There is weather crack in the whole body by relic processing, it is one with presence.
Nitro cellulose lacquer finish that does not use sanding sealer is very paint thin and does not disturb the sounding of wood part. There is no poor coming out like the manufacturer’s mass-produced goods, and it expresses the nuance of hand firmly. It grows as a musical instrument enough to wear and you can also enjoy secular change of lacquer.
