Troublemaker Tele Deluxe
The body is a solid chunk of mahogany, known for its mid-range growl and sustain. The 12” radius neck with ebony fingerboard and 22 medium-jumbo frets promise smooth action even with the most aggressive playing, and its custom Double TapTM humbucking pickups give the Troublemaker its rowdy-yet-refined voice. The Troublemaker Tele Deluxe is offered in Olympic White.
