DAZZLING BOTTLE ROCKET BLUE FLAKE FINISH
Recreates the iconic blue sparkle finish on J’s beloved refinished ’58 Telecaster.
CUSTOM J MASCIS TELECASTER PICKUPS
Voiced to replicate the vintage Tele pickups from J’s original guitar, these custom single-coils deliver the snappy highs and snarly mids that set J’s amp on fire.
TOP-LOADER TELECASTER BRIDGE
An uncommon configuration used briefly in the late fifties and early sixties, top-loaded Telecaster bridges provide slightly lower string tension for slinkier bends and softer attack perfect for rock’n’roll.
CUSTOM J MASCIS “C” NECK
Shaped to J’s specifications, this neck is comfortably thin with a satin finish that provides a smooth and easy playing experience.
ROAD WORN® NECK AND HARDWARE
Our Road Worn® aging process adds tasteful wear to provide a well-loved look and feel.
CHROME MIRROR PICKGUARD
Just like J’s original guitar, the J Mascis Telecaster is equipped with a striking chrome mirror pickguard, making an unmistakable statement on stage or at home.
