62: – 62 0803 – Clint Lowe Project. (2003)

number62

This guitar was built for Clint Lowe of Bendigo. He brought a picture of the Merle Haggard Tele and asked if I could build one similar.

My concern was Fender’s litigious attitude at the time and I was reluctant to make something that too closely resembled the Fender guitar. We changed a number of elements including some structural features and significantly the way the neck blended into the body, most noticeably at the back.

The guitar used Gotoh gold-plated hardware and Kinman Tele pickups. The figured maple for the top, neck and fretboard, sourced from the US, was indeed spectacular.
