The Rittenhouse Telecaster story – Part 5 (@AbeRittenhouse)

On a glorious 2011 january morning, here it was, the parcel coming from Florida with the precious Rittenhouse Telecaster inside!

First impressions:

The guitar is very light, I need to weight it precisely but I am pretty sure it is the lightest guitar I have
The relicing job is very well done. It looks and feels old.

Here is a picture update on the Telecaster I won back in December 2009 and that Abe is building for me at Rittenhouse:

 
As per Abe e-mail, the body is fully cured and ready for the relicing process.

Can't wait to see the next stage!

The Rittenhouse Telecaster Story – Part 1 (@AbeRittenhouse)

All this story began with a post on Muzicosphere about a giveaway for a Rittenhouse guitar...
Then one morning, on December 24th 2009, barely awake as I was checking my iPhone I see this Boxcar popup with this tweet:

I had WON!!! I checked, double-checked, triple-checked but it was for real I had won a free guitar. On Christmas Eve, how cool is that, he??! 🙂
