The Tourbus ’Caster

In the 1950s, Leo Fender laid down the blueprint for the modern electric guitar with the Telecaster, a technically simple instrument which was both affordable and did the job! Following the path marked out by the legendary Leo, I wanted to infuse the Tourbus‘Caster with the distinct character of the Telecaster: a punchy, bright sound with a ‘twangy’ bridge pickup, and a neck pickup full of definition.

The Tourbus‘Caster comes with a bolt-on maple neck and maple fingerboard, a walnut body with two Growl Tele-type single-coil pickups, and a vintage-style, three-saddle bridge.
