Waylon Jennings Custom Leather Fender Player Telecaster with Maple Fretboard 2018 – Present – Butterscotch Blonde

$ 3250.00

Waylon Jennings Custom Leather Butterscotch Blonde Telecaster (includes tooled leather case and strap, custom pickups and 3 picks as shown)

This guitar is a 2023 Telecaster Player that has been wrapped in custom made hand tooled, hand stitched leather to replicate one of four designs that Waylon owned. This leather is not a sleeve or slip-on; it is custom made for this guitar and fits like a glove. Underneath is a beautiful butterscotch blonde finish just like Waylon’s. This design replicates the guitar that Nicole Kidman paid $98,500 at a Christie’s auction to surprise her country music legend husband Keith Urban for his birthday. The pickups have been replaced with authentic Fender Custom Shop Telecaster Texas Specials (already installed, pic is for reference). A brand new set of nickel wound Stringjoy strings optimized for drop tuning were just strung. A new Keith banjo tuning machine with two set screws is installed on the low E string for quick drop D tuning in keeping with Waylon’s guitar. Also included is a brand new authentic Fender Waylon Jennings Telecaster hard side tooled leather case, authentic Fender Waylon Jennings embroidered leather guitar strap, and three novelty picks with Waylon Jennings “Flying W” logo, autograph, and Hee Haw logo. Guitar will be shipped in hard case reinforced with bubble wrap inside the case to support the neck and headstock and double boxed as shown. I hate to part with this beauty but I’ve got two Waylon Teles and the wife says I only need one, lol. I can include a black pick guard by request if you want to be able to swap colors.

This is not a Dave Brown Masterbuilt preorder. This is a custom made replica that is ready to ship! Manufacturer’s Warranty Does Not Apply
