A three-position toggle allows you to switch up how you use the pickups with your choice of using either pickup individually or both together.
The Master Tone features Greasebucket circuitry so you’re able to roll off the highs without adding in unwanted bass, keeping your tone crisp and pristine.
A Master Volume control is also on hand allowing you to adjust the overall level of your output.

A 3-saddle strings-thru-body Tele bridge enhances sustain with its strings-thru design aiding in the transfer of vibration from the strings to the Alder body.
