A custom built masterpiece, the Artisan Tamo Ash Telecaster is a stylish twist on traditional Fender design. The Artisan Tamo Ash Tele is crafted from four different species of wood—a roasted ash body with Tamo ash top and back and a medium-roasted AAA birdseye maple neck with African blackwood fingerboard—this Tele is unabashedly stunning.
