FENDER BLACKTOP BARITONE Telecaster HSS 2011 Sunburst Tele 10964


Regular price $950
Description
This is a 2011 Fender Blacktop Baritone Telecaster in sunburst finish, made in Mexico. These are a rarity, as Fender never produced any other Mexican or USA baritone guitars. Longer 27-inch scale. Most people will tune it B to B, though there are many other baritone tunings out there. Powerful humbucker in the bridge for thick rock sound and a couple single-coil Tele pickups for lighter sounds. Real rosewood board, hardtail bridge, Volume/Tone and 5-way switch. Nice touches include the rear body cut and heavy duty steel jack plate. Weight is a comfortable 7 pounds, 10 ounces. Cosmetically it's a player, but marks are all small except the one by the output jack. Frets are in A+ condition. No case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) I may end auction early if it sells elsewhere. Thanks for looking! See video demo of similar guitar below.

Manufacturer Info
The Fender Blacktop series presents a truly unique new model in the deeply resounding form of the Blacktop Telecaster Baritone guitar. A true baritone Telecaster, it creates a rich sound of distinctive depth and character with a 27" scale, lowdown B-to-B tuning, and a tonally versatile triple-pickup configuration-including a full-throated humbucking bridge pickup-that covers the entire sonic spectrum from tic-tac twang to full-on kerrang!

Guitar Setup
All our setups are done by our in-house trained luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!

Packing
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
