THE TPP FRANCIS ROSSI
"HOTRAIL" TELECASTER TRIBUTE
Nicknamed the "Hotrail" (for obvious reasons), this latter-day version of Francis Rossi's legendary Telecaster sports a calibrated pair of Seymour Duncan Hotrail pickups (accompnying the original Lace Sensor Gold single coil from the guitar's previous spec) as well as a newly installed Tune-o-matic bridge and Stop-Tailpiece. The 'extra-heavy' relic finish has been based upon archive images of the original instrument to present the guitar as she appears today.
For Quo fans, you now have the chance to capture this iconic Tele in two different time periods, depending on both your playing preferences and your personal affections...
