Information

Brand New w/ Warranty. We are an authorized Shelton Dealer.

Like what you see? All photos are of the actual instrument you will receive.

The Shelton Timeflite GTX features a lively thinline body, a Mastery bridge and vibrato, and an array of pickup choices with unique wiring and control possibilities. Equal parts tradition and nonconformist, it brings a timeless favorite into the modern era. Not the exact Shelton you’re looking for? Contact us and we can help you spec out a custom order to your exact liking!

 

What Do We Think?

This is an ultra-light, thinline ash-body Tele built around the Lambertones Ristretto low-output pickups. These babies really let your amp do the talking. But there’s some secret sauce under the hood with the pickup switching (see below). Mastery-equipped and sporting a beautifully-aged TV Blonde finish. Not really sure what more we could ask for!

 

Position 1 - Bridge: Sweet and clear. This position will do your Tele twang but with a little extra “air” in its voice. Roll back the tone for big, open classic rock chords.

Position 2 – Bridge & Neck in Parallel: Your traditional “middle” position. The overlap of the pickups gives that filtered midrange with a touch of quack.

Position 3 - Neck: Tight and articulate low end, vocal quality to midrange and beautiful shimmer on top. This position brings out the best in your blues just as well as in your big interval-laden melodic parts.

Position 4 - Neck w/ roll-off cap: Thick wah-like vowel without losing definition. It really fattens up your cleans and delivers the “woman tone” on your dirt.

Position 5: Bridge & Neck in Series: Almost like switching your amp into rich, creamy overdrive. This is essentially an ultra-wide humbucker comprised of both pickups, delivering a bold punch and singing sustain.

 

How Does It Play?

This guitar features a medium C profile neck that fits effortlessly in the hand. The string action sets up incredibly low without buzz. We have it set up at the 12th fret measuring just 4/64” on the low E string and 3/64” on the high E. The Mastery Vibrato is smooth and returns to “zero” just right, ensuring the guitar stays in tune throughout frequent use of the vibrato.
