This is my third Crook telecaster to come through over the last year.  I now see that there is some real consistency in the build quality of his guitars, including really nice necks and fret work.

This Crook Custom was a one off build, as documented in an email to the previous owner, built for Bill Crook's vendor who supplied him with the paisley paper for his guitars.  The printer added the file of Brad Paisley's signature to the paper from a file that Bill had around from a project he worked on with Mr. Paisley.

The guitar is in excellent condition with no changes or repairs.  The neck is perfect and there is room in the truss rod for future adjustment.  The action is perfect and you get classic Tele tones from the Bill Lawrence and Adder pickups.  

Nice hardshell case included.
