With the S-622TLC, the Tokyo brand tackles the mythical Telecaster by bringing a touch of originality with its revised and corrected design, and an impressive manufacturing quality. The S-622TLC is a kind of "fluidized" Telecaster with an "arched" body directly sculpted like a table. This, gives a very beautiful vault, ergonomic and aesthetic, which allows to affirm the character of this guitar which oscillates between modernity and vintage.
The SAITO S-622TLC Custom is a guitar with a sober and modern aesthetic. Here, no flashy exotic essences, the S-622TLC adopts a design in the pure Japanese tradition, combining efficiency and simplicity, while keeping a sophisticated touch thanks to an ultra meticulous manufacture. In competition with Suhr, Tom Anderson, Tyler and other well-known high-end manufacturers, the S-622TLC plays the challengers with a very aggressive price positioning and a "build" of formidable quality.
Our "choice" configuration, as standard, for this model is based on a swamp ash or alder body (your choice). With a bolt-on maple neck (access to the last profiled boxes) with a rosewood, maple or ebony fingerboard (your choice). The pickup configuration is typical of the standard Telecaster, but everything is modifiable.
As for the fittings, the brand trusts Gotoh 100%. We therefore find the excellent Gotoh bridge and the MG-T Lock tuners. The pickups are handcrafted, directly from the brand. You are free to configure your model as you wish, we support you throughout the process.
The Saito S-622TLC is a very balanced and above all, very versatile Tele carve top. Equipped with excellent microphones, it cleverly mixes vintage sounds and modern comfort. The neck profile is absolutely comfortable, the manufacturing quality is exceptional with an insolating value for money. It's an all-purpose guitar that achieves the feat of doing everything "well", plus that inimitable twang, specific to the Telecaster.
