About

This is of course, Jennings take on an icon, with the craftsmanship and handmade quality Jennings are well known and respected for. You'll find finishing touches that make a handmade and finished guitar great and benefit play-ability and feel, including rolled fretboard edges, rounded fret ends as well as a lovely choice selection of custom options. This is your chance to have a handmade, Californian icon with your own stamp and Jennings high quality workmanship.

For this build I really wanted to capture the vibe of the classic black double bound 60s Tele design, but with some awesome & unique Jennings personality.
I chose some really cool features which are detailed below and I'm so pleased with how it turned out, one of the classy-est T-Styles I've seen in a long time, and Chad has done a beautiful job on the build. I love the details on this, from the very high quality hardware choices to the spin on a classic colourway that definitely has Jennings personality.

This specific guitar is now a particularly good deal when compared to what ordering one at the 2024 pricing would be. Exactly the same spec build, ordered custom today would retail at £3,000 with the upgrade options it features. So this one is a awesome buy, with some really choice, quality upgrade options and a Monster Tele!
