Wild-TV “Black Ultra Relic” Pattern

Over the past few years we’ve customized a lot of instruments. A solid proportion of them where obviously Telecasters®. Beyond customization we’ve also built a lot of Tele-style guitars. Some of them were relatively close to the original but most of them feature original option, unique painting job or construction method (7 strings, set-in neck,  neck through).

In the end when we’ve been talking about producing a Tele-style guitar, we’ve immediately decided to bring the instrument back to its roots to achieve the authentic twang of its notorious predecessor. We’ve kept the unmistakable original spirit but wanted to firmly ground our Wild-TV in the present with a vintage-modern design.

25-1/2″ SCALE

One of the most common scale lengths is the 25-1/2″ guitar scale, made popular by Stratocasters®, Telecasters® and found on a wide variety of instruments. The 25-1/2″ produces a rich, strong, bell-like tone, and defined low-end.

25-1/2″ = 648mm

BOLT-ON NECK

The slower transference of acoustic energy from the non-glued neck yields a little more pop and attack from the string—in essence, it decouples the strings from the body and neck. The snap and pop of the bolt-on guitar neck emphasizes note definition. It adds a sharpness and firmness that contribute to a cutting tone, often called “twang”

ELECTRONICS / WILD-TV

Our Wild-TV guitars are powered by a set of matched TV 55’s pickup. We hand wire our guitars the old fashion way with premium quality vintage wire.
