Guitar O.R. Custom Build

Recently Guitar O.R. has finished their latest build.  This guitar offered a lot of challenges in that its anything but “standard.”   It all starts with a high quality cut of Alder wood.  This guitar was truely custom in that it was  a Fender Telecaster style but commissioned to include a sustainer pickup, phase circuit; distortion circuit, and kill switch all build in.

Many hours were spent with trial runs of proper and effective placement of each addition to the electrical system, while maintaining all considerations to ensure top tonal response.    This beauty was complemented with a maple/ rosewood neck, Hipshot tuners, Barenuckles pickups and nitro cellulose finish.

With a huge selection of tones, this guitar is incredibly versatile and will be sure to bring its new owner many years of sweet tones.

Much less time than most of Calgary’s guitar repair shops.

Essentially it is a replacement nut that reduces distance from the nut to the 12th fret.
