Northwood Custom 'Telecaster' - Arrived

I just ordered this from the 12th Fret in Ontario. IMO a steal at $1199CDN, considering it was at least double when new, maybe even closer to $3000.

Northwood primarily make acoustics, which I can say are fantastic as I also own two of those, but electrics are made on a custom made-to-order basis. Totally hand-made, too.

Cool dealer pic

Got it today! It was made in '96 but is in very good shape, though the gold hardware has some wear. Alder body with a flame maple cap, birds-eye neck with rosewood 'board. Seymour Duncan mini-humbucker in the neck and a Vintage Vibe P90 by Pete Biltoft in the bridge. I plan to change the graphite string tree to a gold one, I think it'll look nicer. Played it for a while and think it has a smooth sound. The P90 is alot louder than the neck pickup, using both gives a nice sound. Came with a Fender Vintage Reissue white tolex case, too.
