Third Floor Guitars
Jimmy Dennis is one of the guitarists for "Draw the Line", the only Aerosmith tribute band endorsed by Steven Tyler.
He wanted a Telecaster he could take on the road and rely on....so he gave us a call!
We happened to have this pre-owned ash Warmoth body in stock and it was love at first sight!
Jimmy laid out his expectations before we turned a screw. He required a guitar that would stay in tune, have as little hum/buzzing noise as possible, and a very specific scooped mid-range tone. He also wanted a rosewood board with 22 frets. No prob!
First up, we shielded the cavities to guard against unwanted stage hum.
Then we wired up an electrosocket jack, can't have no pesky nuts coming loose!
We then mounted a Joe Barden bridge with Wilkinson compensated saddles.
After some research, we decided on DiMarzio pickups- a FastTrack T in the bridge (wired for coil splitting) and a Twang King for the neck.
We fabricated a bone nut from scratch to add to the 22 fret, 9.5 radius Mighty Mite neck and some Gotoh vintage-style tuners.
Jimmy will be on tour with Draw the Line, playing clubs, concerts, cruises and a trip to Europe with his trusty TFG built Tele by his side...how cool is that! In fact, he’s now touring with THREE custom builds we’ve done for him!
