Schroeder Chopper TL with optional hollow-body "S-hole", maple
fingerboard, and a Bigsby. This is custom made in USA by guitar builder
Jason Schroeder and his handy-work really shines throughout. This plays
and sounds better than any Telecaster Thinline we have ever seen, and
you immediately notice the build quality as soon as you pick it up. It
has been described as a cross between a Telecaster and a PRS. The guitar
weighs 8.48 pounds and the nut width is 1-11/16".
TL has very little wear and you can tell it was rarely played. There is
nearly zero fretwear and the only noticeable marks on the guitar is some
light swirls in the clear coat. There is no worming on the back and
again just faint marks in the clear coat. The neck is straight and
smooth, the truss rod works, and the electronics sound outstanding.
Includes a non-original acoustic hardshell case that is a little too big
for the guitar but will work well for shipping purposes.
Schroeder has been building custom guitars to client specs since 2005.
While he still takes occasional custom orders, he feels passionate about
two models in particular that he wants to share with the world. The
Chopper TL and the Radio Lane represent archetype tones of Jason's
favorite classic guitars. You have picked them up, those very special
"1 in 100" guitars that feel perfect in your hands and sound just like
our favorite recordings. Jason is not trying to reinvent tone. Rather
he is trying to perfect how to obtain archetype tone without the
selection anxiety. It starts with great design, then great wood, great
components, and of course the highest quality construction.
The Award Winning Schroeder TL is a single coil work horse built for
rock and roll. Jason designed this to play on stage, so there are no
short cuts on this guitar. Only the best parts and materials are used in
its construction. Although it CAN do country twang and do it well, it
is voiced to achieve the articulate and biting tones of classic rock and
roll. You can hear its character in every place on the fingerboard,
complex overtones, body and bite. In our opinion, all the things that
make a great T-style instrument. It was built to require minimal, if
any, adjustment to your amp if you go from your 'bucker guitar to your
