Fret end dress & string tree :: Warmoth Telecaster [8.3 lbs]
Flame maple top, mahogany back and birdseye neck on this humbucker-equipped Tele. The neck is a short-scale 24.75" conversion neck with 24 frets. This Warmoth came into the shop for a fret end dress and a setup. Originally it did not have a string tree on the headstock so the lower tension of the shorten scale left the high strings buzzy and lacking sustain. The added vintage-style string retainer greatly improved the tone and dynamic range of these two strings.
