Bill Lawrence Swampkaster T tele style GuitarBill Lawrence USA
This is such a stunning guitar! Obviously, the natural ash body with double binding and maple neck cosmetics evoke memories of the immortal Albert Collins. Tonally, this one can more than hold it's own. It's equipped with a Duncan Hot Stack bridge pickup and a 4 way switch, which yield 4 distinct tonal options. The neck pickup is round and flutey, the bridge pickup is searing and fat. Position 3 cops the standard funky parallel Tele tone, albeit with a bit more girth. Position 4 is party time, putting both pickups in series for fat humbucker tones. Watch your friend's jaws drop when you start ripping off creamy Santana licks with your Tele! This one comes in at a well balanced 7 lbs. 12 ozs. The neck is a flat, wide oval profile with a maple cap and truss rod adjustment at the headstock. This guitar shows very little wear. The frets are in great shape and have a ton of life left and there are only minor impressions. This is one muscular tone machine!
