Custom Vintage Beer and Ale Fender American Elite Telecaster w/Ebony Fingerboard

$2,899.00 $2,249.00

This is a new Custom Fender American Elite Telecaster with Ebony Fingerboard from Beyond Custom Guitars.

Fender’s American Elite Telecaster solidbody electric guitar is a great instrument for guitarists who love the classic platform but need a wider palette of tones. You’ll get the familiar twang and cut Teles are known for, but without the 60-cycle hum, thanks to a pair of 4th-generation Fender Noiseless single-coil pickups. An S-1 switch adds new pickup voicings to the American Elite Tele. The Fender American Elite Telecaster is the future of one of history’s most popular workhorse guitars.

The custom art and finishing done by Beyond Custom Guitars in a concept of Vintage Beer and ale Labels was meticulously researched and authenticated to all be US-based, local breweries from the early pre- and post- prohibition era. The 21st Amendment, which rolled back Prohibition in the United States, was ratified on December 5, 1933. Although many states and counties continued to block the sale of alcohol — for years and even decades. To see what those beers looked like, we dug heavily into registered product label case files from 1933 to 1936 . The labels offer a window into a short, unique period of American history — post-Prohibition, during the Great Depression, in the years leading up to Word War II, which saw rationing and campaigns that cemented the link between patriotism and America’s brewing businesses. During this era in history, it was entirely common for quackery and snake oil salesman, so some labels during this time would state crazy things, such as “Recommended by Doctors”or “Brewed for Family Use”.

The customwork was done using a combination or graphic finishing handpainting and distressing. it has also been yellowed slightly for a bit of an aged vibe. As a bounus we have finished a matching graphic pickguard to keep the continuity of the design on the front. The body has been designed so it also lookes great with a stock pickguard. The original black pickguard is included with the guitar. If you were planning on giging heavily with this guitar it may be a good idea to switch them out. but it ships with the custom pickguard installed.

The artwork is protected in a multilayered high solid clearcoat and finished by hand to be about twice as fine as a factory finish. Doing this by hand results in a much more glasslike finish but also tends to show tiny human and natural imperfections if you look hard enough (these are only visible of you look at the right angle and light) so please take this into consideration. We strive to achieve the highest level of finish, but we are human and cannot perform like machines. We feel the benifits of hand finishing outweigh the drawbacks as the end result is much finer than a factory finish.

The fingerboard is streaked ebony wood. This is a pretty normal thing for Fender ebony fingerboards lately but The streaking (light spots) in the ebony wood are a bit strange on this one, but thats exacty why we picked this guitar for this project, I think it gives it a little worn and weathered look. there are light spots on the 5th, 9th, and 14th fret as well as some more minor streaking through the fretboard. The neck on this guitar is incredibly smooth and fast.

This guitar was purchased as a new guitar prior to the artwork and refin (Retail $1950) so its never been owned. It still is in basically new condition, other than being handled and played a bit, no major nicks or dings. may be a few very minor things but overall in great condition, and plays amazing like these guitars are known for. The combination of this greatly researched and applied artwork and the Fender American Elite Telecaster makes it an amazing collectible with a fabulous story to share.

Ships with new fender molded hardshell case, all applicable case candy and signed Certificate of Authenticity from BCG.
