Paul Waller has built a reputation as one of the world's preeminent masters of the Telecaster, and these magical Masterbuilt '54s are proof positive of his skills. How so? Well, first off, they are a feast for the eyes! As always, a white blonde finish on a nice piece of ash is a hard combo to beat, and their black pickguards give them an air of sophistication. To me, they look like Telecasters in tuxedos, and the evening formal wear vibes make for quite an enticing aesthetic. As if that weren't enough to overload your salivary glands, the necks are made from a GORGEOUS cut of birdseye maple!
Of course, they sound awesome and play great, too! They have a comfy '54 Soft "V" neck profile with medium jumbo frets and a 9.5" radius, a combination that invites you to play for hours. And when it comes to sound, it will rock your socks with two handwound Twisted Tele pickups, which put out plenty of classic bite, twang, sizzle, and jangle!
Anyone looking for an inspiring Telecaster with classic tone and stylin' looks will love these powerful Paul Waller-built '54s!
