The Caballo Tono Ligero or “light tone horse” is a customized creation only found in the Fender Custom Shop, which plays host to extraordinary features not found in classical Fender fashion. The lightweight, resonant hollow ash body features an f-hole and has a perfectly worn-in relic lacquer finish. A stunning one-piece 3A flame maple neck with a 10/56 “V” profile and 9.5” fingerboard radius wears narrow tall (6105) frets for comfortably precise playing.
A pair of chrome T.V. Jones® pickups offers an uncommon growl right between a bright single-coil and a dark humbucker, providing a perfectly personal tone. A three-way switch and Fat ’50s Tele wiring with 500K pots provide balance and complementary response between the pickups. Additional features include a single-ply parchment Caballo Tono pickguard, sawed off Tele® bridge with compensated brass RSD saddles, Sperzel® Deluxe tuning machines with pearl buttons, bone nut and a vintage disc string tree. Includes a deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
