2021 Todd Krause Masterbuilt Prestige Box Top Telecaster®, Maple Fingerboard, Faded Honeyburst

More about 2021 Todd Krause Masterbuilt Prestige Box Top Telecaster®

Todd Krause’s Box Top Tele is inspired by the construction of an amplifier cabinet. The maple top is inset into the body of the guitar with a box joint, which is a personal highlight for Krause and a technique not often employed in guitar building. The contrasting woods give the appearance of checkered binding, the light honey color shows off the joint and the AAAA Birdseye top. Despite its unique appearance, Krause’s Telecaster still features traditional specs. Someone seeking a different look which delivers a familiar feel, playability and tone of a Telecaster will find this guitar compelling. Pickups are Josefina hand-wound “OBG” in the bridge and ‘55/’56 Tele in the neck.

This instrument is one-of-kind and was sold to Huber Breese Music in Fraser, MI.
