Zebrawood Telecaster

Zebrawood Telecaster custom built at Spencer Acoustics. I wanted one of these from Fender, but they cost 12,000 American dollars. Needless to say, I cannot afford that type of money, so I turned to the internet for sourcing my zebrawood materials. On ebay I found a gentleman selling a zebrawood body blank. It was a project he started 22 years ago and never finished. I told him I would finish it and send him pictures, but problem is I lost touch with this man.

The neck is a vintage Telecaster inspired Extreme V also zebrawood – baked zebrawood to be exact. This neck was oven roasted to produce a caramelized baked effect. The fingerboard material is cocobolo rosewood with amazing red and orange colors. The frets are gold as is every piece of hardware on the guitar.

This guitar is a chunk. A boat anchor for sure and that is why I never added strap buttons. I call this a Sit Down Special. Zebrawood is very dense and very heavy. You do not want to wrap this guitar around your neck. Just sit down and enjoy the roasted vintage inspired deep V neck carve and let the attack of the zebrawood delight you acoustically.

All gold hardware. Even the frets are gold!
