NGD! 2009 Fender Baja Telecaster


Recommended Posts

I picked up a Johnny Marr jaguar last week so I traded my CIJ Jaguar for this on Saturday, a 2009 Fender Baja Tele. Mexican made but with a difference. It's got a Fender Custom Shop Broadcaster pickup in the bridge and a Custom Shop Twisted Tele pickup in the neck. It's also got four way switching instead of three, and like my Marr Jaguar, joins the two pickups together into a big humbucker in the 4th position. It's previous owner did a number of additional upgrades with the wiring and pots, jack plug as well as GOTOH locking tuners, a Joe Barden bridge and Schaller strap locks. It's five years old but looks brand new and comes in a lovely blonde finish. The neck is like a baseball bat with a soft V shape which I love as I've got big hands.

Hello!

 

Beautiful guitar!

 

How come, there's no switch for OOP on the volume knob? :-k

 

Enjoy with good health! [thumbup]

The previous owner swapped it out for a unit with better pots and switch. He gave me the original one that still has the S1 switch on the volume knob.

I see.

 

However, the OOP sound is not everyone's cup of tea, but if You like to play slow, soulful blues, it's a brilliant feature for immitating human speech. Kind of a more convenient alternative to talkbox.

 

Cheers... Bence
