“I have been playing tele’s since I started playing guitar 30 years ago, and continue to use them at gigs 2 to 4 nights per week….I don’t even bring another model of guitar. I’ve owned several originals and in my day job I have run across a number of the boutique built versions……I have not found anything better than a Rinder. Mark’s attention to detail is spot on……he has truly mastered the art of building amazing tele’s!”

Jeff from Iowa had a project that didn't go his way and asked for some help in swapping out to a pine body,along with rebuilding the guitar and here is what he had to say!
I was very impressed with your willingness to talk to me at length about the project, give me pointers, feedback, suggestions. I like the way you kept in contact with me, sent me updates and pictures, explained issues that came up and suggested solutions, and in general kept me in the loop. Not all craftsmen are as willing to communicate. Some of them can make the customer feel like a pain in the neck for asking questions, but you were never that way in this process and I appreciate it.
Good guitars are easy to find. They are not hard to build and can be bought just about anywhere these days. But, truly great and inspiring guitars are a harder get. But that is exactly what my Rinder Guitar is to me. Inspirational. From it's nitro-coated one-piece sugar pine body to it's custom-finished neck, the tone that my Rinder delivers drives me to play more, play deeper and play with more conviction. I know that the sound in my head is going to come through my custom built Rinder, then out of the speaker. Everytime!

The guitar is really one of a kind,i can not put it down ! I just can't get over how great the pickups sounds. For once a tele that does not have that nasally "AM RADIO"sound on the bridge pickup. I have half a dozen tele guitars,several custom ones and there is no comparison to this guitar ! I loved it so much i bought another one in blue....Thanks Mark

It plays great ,sounds great and looks great.Not only did mark build me the exact guitar that i imagined ,but also exceeded my expectations in terms of it's sound and play ability.

I recently purchased a shoreline gold T- master from Mark and it's really a unique guitar and the Fullerton wound pickups really are true to claim.This particular guitar did not exist back in the day, but you certainly would never know it ! If you don't want to pay the ridiculous prices that most of theses type guitars go for then do yourself a favor and try one out !!!!!!

Now I feel special! For years, I've been seeking out a relic tele that I connected with. I came across Mark (who works for Rickenbacker and custom work for G&L) and he does absolutely amazing custom work. I bought this guitar out of his "gallery" and ended up custom ordering another.
I've been playing the guitar nonstop . It's a resonating dream come true -- I have it strung with 11's and have been playing through a variety of amps. You know that feel when you sit down with a guitar in your lap and strum an open G and feel the whole thing vibrating -- this is that guitar. I bought this one for da blues and da country (fyi I'm a jazz guitarist at heart, so my other order is for a SD Alnico Pro II humbucking neck pickup rosewood fretboard tele, that'll be strung with flatwound 12's -- totally different)
The neck may be one of the nicest most "worn in old friend" feels that I've ever experienced. The relic is not overdone -- it's just awesome. Can't wait to gig this one. I am totally stoked on the guitar and can't wait for its friend to show up.
Mark is outstanding to work with and I would STRONGLY suggest that anyone in the market for a relic-caster send him an email.

I'm very happy with it. Plays like a dream. Very resonant and light. I love the tone . All in all... Perfect !!!

I just bought a black Rinder T. I'm a 60 year old guitarist and I've been playing since I was a teenager and this is one of the absolute best guitars I have ever played. I've had two Nash tele's in the past and sold them but this Rinder tele is a keeper for sure. I wanted a back up electric to my PRS 1999 McCarty hollowbody (in whale blue) w/humbuckers but now the PRS is going to be the back up. I may be interested in one of your "C" guitars down the line
