The Fender Custom Shop do some pretty special things and this is certainly one of them! A fresh take on an old classic, this Fender Custom Shop Artisan Tele is a real head turner.
The Roasted Ash body boasts a striking Tamo Ash top, this beautiful Japanese Ash is a radical move for Fender but the result is simply stunning. With a thin nitrocellulose lacquer you get nothing but natural tones from this beaut as nitro allows the wood to breathe and doesn't stifle the woods natural resonance. The Gold anodized aluminium pickguard looks great, this guitar is both visually and sonically incredible.
A majestic 1-piece medium roast AAA Birds Eye Maple neck is topped with an African Blackwood fingerboard to make this guitar one massive tone wood dream. With a comfortable '63 C profile and a 9.5"-12" compound radius fingerboard it's perfectly suited to heavy chord work and rip roaring solos.
A pair of handwound Custom Shop '58 single coil telecaster pickups delivers authentic vintage style tone, that distinctive Tele twang is here in spades. It's a tone worthy of a guitar of this spec. With a deluxe hardshell case, COA and strap, the Fender Custom Shop have produced another absolute winner!View Full Specs
