Well obviously this is a custom refin (not done here) and obviously it looks more like a Tele Custom than a Tele Deluxe, but it’s pretty cool looking either way!

Orange Telecaster Deluxe (or Custom)

Somewhere along the line, this Tele was modded with a Bigsby and a wide-range humbucker. The current owner liked the guitar overall, but not the sound of the neck pickup. So we installed a Lollar Special T in the bridge position and a Lollar Imperial humbucker in the neck position. Because of the smaller size of the new neck pickup, we mounted it in a chrome pickup bezel and it looks great. I find it hard to look away from this orange soda/dreamsicle-looking guitar.
