MJT/MIJ Tele

Post by MattAnt »

Picked this up from Oleg, lovely tele but similar ground already covered. Passing on at same price of $1200 with hard case.

I hope Oleg doesn't mind but I am going to copy paste his listing below!
It is a Tele, highly customised. The body is by MJT, tobacco burstish, nitro finish. The wood is ash and it looks to be a single piece.

The neck is from an MIJ tele, with MIJ tuners. Maple, obviously. It is beefy but with a little tapering...not full thickness all the way down. A few of the frets have barely discernible wear, the rest look new. I've lightly rubbed the stickiness off the finish with some very fine wire wool. Fender F neckplate

The neck pickup is a TV Jones, the rear pickup is a Cavalier Nocaster. It has an Emerson Custom wiring harness with a big ole vintage-style capacitor. Also has a treble bleed mod so the guitar will shine through the mix even when you turn it down :-). All the cavities are shielded with copper, so it is quiet.

I've fitted a genuine Deusenberg trem, with adjustable arm (length and angle can be changed). The bridge is Fender and has 3 rounded and chromed saddles, so they are smooth enough to allow the trem to work its magic. I think they are brass under the chrome, but not sure. The Tele and bridge are also drilled for through-body stringing, if you feel like giving the Trem the night off. But why would you???

It's a great combination of pickups and sounds. The guitar is in great shape with no known faults.

These partsacaster jobbies seem to be popular right now--or at least there are some real optimist sellers on TM :crazy: This one will be cheaper I expect. I'm not sure what it is worth, but am open to reasonable offers.

Fair call. Also have a Wildwood fender tele deluxe thin skin coming back this way shortly. But that would require some coin my way 8)

Passing it on for what I paid for it, which I think is a steal. I believe it could fairly easily fetch $1500 outside the forum

I could be quite interested in the MIJ Traditional 50’s Mr Jellybelly. If you’re looking to move that on I’d be keen to find out a little more.
