  • Product Description

    Attention collectors! If you've heard the name, you know exactly what you're looking at. This DeTemple 52 Tele is a rare specimen in excellent condition with moderate playwear throughout and a larger chip at the neck heel. We would equate this masterful piece of work to the most iconic 50s and 60s Telecaster, but with the attention to detail and build quality the the big-box brands can only dream of! Straight from the outset, you can clearly see the level of detail and meticulous craftsmanship that goes into building these dream guitars. Upgrades include an Emerson 4-way switch, a Seymour Duncan bridge pickup and a highly sought-after Mastery Bridge.

    This build had an original price tag of over $8,000. You can skip the standard wait time of 9 months to a year and snag this beauty at a steal. Comes as everything pictured.
