Description
This is a killer 2015 Fender Cabronita Telecaster in Candy Apple Red finish, made in Mexico. This guitar is in excellent playing condition and except for one big ding on the back, cosmetics are great. It has approximately $400 in upgrades with Fender locking tuners, TV Jones pickups, Fender "F" neck plate, black pickguard, brass barrell compensated saddles, and Dunlop strap pegs (I will include a set of Dunlop strap locks as well). 

The TV Jones PowerTron pickups is what the current crop of USA-made Cabronitas have. Get the same sound with this guitar for $600 less! It has a C-shape/9.5" radius neck, 3-way pickup switch, and single volume control. The guitar feels and plays great. One big ding on the back near output jack. From the front looks super clean. Frets are in good condition with only mild flattening. Comes with a gigbag. Weight is 7 pounds, 13 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking.

Manufacturer Info
Fender's Cabronita Telecaster Thinline electric guitar combines classic Tele style with a slightly rude attitude. It's got all the bark, bite, and howl you'd expect from a Thinline Tele, courtesy of its resonant chambered alder body and spanky maple neck. The name Cabronita is Spanish slang and roughly translates as little bastard or little devil.

Alder body (ash on White Blonde model)
25.5" Scale, 9.5 radius
Modern C-shape maple neck
Maple fretboard
22 Medium jumbo frets
Fideli'Tron Humbucking Pickup (Bridge)
Fideli'Tron Humbucking Pickup (Neck)
3-Way pickup selector
Master volume
String-thru hardtail bridge with 6 cast saddles
Chrome hardware
Includes gig bag

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.

More info on Cabronita
The most striking and obvious difference is the use of TV Jones or Fidelitron pickups, both of which are based on Gretsch designs. Gretsch was the first to have a patent approved for a humbucking pickup although Gibson had filed two years earlier, but there are significant differences in their designs. Gretsch pickups are said to have more of a jangle in their tone whereas Gibson humbuckers are more full bodied in tone and slightly larger. Over time, the Gibson design became the standard for humbucker pickups, although the Gretsch design has a smaller but significant following. The TV Jones Classic pickups are a modified and arguably improved version of the Gretsch Filter'Tron. Similarly, the Fender Fidelitron is based on the Filter'Tron design, although they have a tone more akin to a single coil pickup, the tone most associated with Fender.

With the exception of the Squier model that uses a Bigsby vibrato, all the Fender branded Cabronitas use what is typically called a hardtail Stratocaster bridge, meaning it wasn't designed for a tremolo system. This is used on other models of Telecaster that have a humbucking pickup in the bridge position, although humbuckers are rarely used as OEM equipment on Telecasters. Regardless of country of origin, all Cabronita models feature a one piece maple neck and 22 medium jumbo frets as well as a 9.5 inch fingerboard radius, the common modern "C" shape, and either a 42.8mm wide nut (US built) or 42mm wide nut (Indonesia and Mexico built).
