C-Tele is a solid body (body in European ash + top in European ash), but with large tonal rooms. This gives it sustain and, of course, less weight. Sounds full even without attaching it to the amplifier. It has a strong attack, this is because the "Telecaster" type Gotoh bridge is positioned on a European ash top that is up and very hard, therefore with a high sound response. The choice not to resort to the classic "swamp ash", certainly with a softer tone and close to the alder (aldler), is dictated by the fact that we wanted a guitar with a strong personality, pushed on the mid-highs, but not so much on the highs. < / p>
The handle is in flamed maple, has a slight elegant flame on the back towards the bass. The choice of marbled, harder and heavier than the simple maple campestris, is forced by the European ash body. To have a "vibrating" body / handle system its specific weight must be fairly balanced. So we have a resonant guitar at most. The rest of the hardware is highly selected, guaranteeing extreme precision in tuning.
Two words for this beautiful set of "Golden Age" USA pickups, which reproduce the legendary 50s tone. With these can the "tinkling" (twang) typical Tele becomes an added value, well usable in multiple situations; not exaggerated feedback and not shrill (too many medium-high) like certain pickups mounted on modern Telecasters.
"Black relic" is the look, elegant with the taste of vintage. It does not want to be the "reissue" of any model, it has its size, therefore it is unique. A sign of recognition is given by the "end fret" (the keyboard ends with a key, no wood).
