Hand picked by us during a recent trip to the Fender Custom Shop facility in Corona, California. There were 3 UK dealers on this trip and as we entered the Custom Shop conference room to pick the stock we wanted, it soon became clear that we all wanted the same guitars! However, most of the guitars on display were one-offs, so the fairest way was to have our names picked from a hat, to see who would "win" the chance to purchase the guitar. The luck was with me that day, we snagged 11 out of 14 guitars!
Super cool '60 Tele model finished in Vintage Blonde, with a Closest Classic finish.
This is a really meaty sounding guitar but it still retains that Tele "twang"
It has an Ash body with a maple neck and rosewood fingerboard.
The neck shape is a Mid 60's style oval C profile, which measures .780" at the 1st fret and .965" at the 12th
The radius is 9.5" and the frets are medium Jumbo.
Pickups are a smooth sounding 63 neck pickup and the bridge is a super punchy sounding Broadcaster unit.
