The Fender Custom Shop Imperial Arc 1972 Telecaster Custom Masterbuilt by Paul Walle will please any Tele fan fortunate enough to strap it on. Close inspection reveals the remarkable workmanship and attention to detail for which Paul of Fender Custom Shop is known. It's available in a vintage combination of Tele specs. It has a lightweight ash body with a plain grain maple neck sporting a mid-'60s back shape. The fingerboard is Indian rosewood with 21 frets, leading to Schaller "F" Tuners tuners. Perfectly incorporating a 51 Nocaster bridge, the 3-ply pickguard houses a Handwound Broadcaster bridge pickup and a Custom Designed Handwound Humbucker at the neck. Includes hardshell case.

Paul Waller Master Builder
Master Builder Paul Waller is a Southern California native with woodworking and guitar making in his blood. He built his first guitar at age 14 in his high school woodshop and hasn™t looked back since.He joined a cabinet shop right out of high school and, after a stint at a small Southern California guitar maker, enrolled at the acclaimed Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery in Phoenix in 2000. There he trained extensively in electric and acoustic guitar construction and repair, specializing in arch-top work, which remains his favorite. Waller joined Fender in 2003 fresh from his training at Roberto-Venn. He spent two years working closely with master arch-top craftsman Bob Benedetto, and he became steeped in the many facets of building techniques from all the Custom Shop' Master Builders.
