ORDER 

For many guitarists, a classic Tele is still "the guitar". Now you can have your classic Blackguard built for you, with some essential improvements.

 

We have predefined some elementary things, but of course you can define the crucial details that matter to you only: Size of the neck, the frets, the tonewood and of course the color.

STANDARD FEATURES

LINDY FRALIN
PICKUPS

We've chosen a specially selected set of Lindy's best handwound pickups:

Blues Special Neck

SplitSteel Poled Tele Bridge

 

Warm and transparent single-coil sounds in the neck position and twang and growl in the bridge position – noiseless! With this special set you can even play all styles from soul, blues, country and pop to rock and high-gain metal.

RESONANT &
LIGHTWEIGHT TONEWOODS

We only choose the best woods. Everything else wouldn't make sense, if you spend countless hours on handbuilding an instrument.

The body of a Telenovela Std. is always 2-piece Swamp Ash or Alder, and always less than 2kg.

BELLY CARVE

No matter what guitar, a belly carve makes the player experience a lot more comfortable – you're just closer to the strings, and you feel your instrument a lot more vibrating.

REVERSED CONTROL LAYOUT

We switched the controls, so you have better access to the volume pot and you dont' accidently switch pickups while strumming.

INTONATED BRIDGE

We use a classic Tele bridge – of course. But ours has perfectly intonated brass saddles and a cut at the pickups position – that makes picking a lot more fun!

STAINLESS STEEL FRETS

Since the material for the frets has almost no influence on the sound, we choose exclusively Stainless Steel Frets. They last forever.

CHOOSE FROM

2 SIZES

The height of the frets a great influence on the playing feel:

 

With standard sized frets (6105) you have to fight a bit more for the tone - and some players love exactly that.

With jumbo frets (6100) you just fly over the fretboard and bending effortless easy.

 

The choice is yours!

LOCKING TUNERS

Staggered locking tuners are a great enhancement for the geometry of the string pull on the headstock and – as the name suggests – they lock the strings, resulting in a much better tuning stabiliy. 

That's why hipshot locking tuners are standard on the std.

When it comes to neck profiles, a standard doesn't make much sense. Everybody has different hands and different preferences. So you can choose from 4 common neck profiles.

If you're not sure, stick with the 2 most common ones: standard C (90% of Fender guitar necks have this profile) or 59 Burst (common in the Gibson world).

Fat Old Monster is very thick, this is almost a Baseball Bat and Boatneck is almost as thick, but more V-shaped. Both are for players with big hands.

NECK PROFILES
YOUR HANDS – YOUR CHOICE!

We only choose the best woods. Everything else wouldn't make sense, if you spend countless hours on handbuilding an instrument.

SWAMP ASH
OR ALDER?

 

Swamp Ash will provide a fast and snappy attack with a lot of twang. Perfect for funk, soul, country and all percussive playing styles, still with great tonal stability and sustain.

 

Alder is on the warmer, rounder side, less edgy and a bit fuller in sound – great sustain, too.

Best for pop, rock and metal.

1-PIECE
QUARTERSAWN MAPLE NECK

You don't get the classic Tele sound without a maple neck. We choose only the best selected quartersawn pieces of maple for a maximum of sound and stability.

 

Like Leo's original, it's got to be one-piece with a walnut skunk stripe on the back finished with a thin vintage tinted nitro lacquer.
