1988 Jackson Telly Custom


Amazingly this guitar is work order 2247 and my white Telly is work order 2248. I bought both guitars within a week from different sellers / locations. Now these two are reunited in Finland after having been ordered at the same time over 20 years ago. Where as the white one has seen a lot of action in its life this came from the original owner and is in pristine condition. It was purchased October 1988 from Sam Ash. Still original apart from a replaced volume pot.

Compared to the white Telly this one has a slightly fatter neck but overall the guitars are very similar. I just love the response that Telly bodies give to playing. The guitar's sound has weight but feels effortless to play.


Special thanks to Kelly and Rege!
