Magneton Telenovela – Crema Rayado
A lightweight and wonderfully warm sounding Tele made of alder, especially attractive because of its striped side, which allows the beautiful wood to show through.
We also gave this classic Tele the Smuggler's Cut, not necessarily just to further reduce the weight of the already light instrument, but because we found that it made the guitars sound even woodier and more resonant, tending towards a thinline sound.
Of course, we then used only the best ingredients for this Tele, like a beefy, toasted maple neck, hand-wound pickups by Lindy Fralin, a classic but better intonated bridge, and - as always - stainless steel frets and locking tuners.
