The Fender Custom Shop do some pretty special things, and with the Custom Shop NAMM 2017 '63 Relic Telecaster they hark right back to the golden era of Telecaster production.
With the appearance of a vintage guitar this Custom Shop model benefits from all the playability and reliability of a brand new one. The lightweight Ash body is finished in a stunning Aged Taos Turquoise nitro lacquer, period correct, this finish will wear beautifully with time and develop its own character even further. It also allows the natural resonance of the body to sing and sustain much more effectively compared with other finishes.
The AA-Grade Flame Maple neck features a 9.5"-12" compound radius for a superb modern playing action without any choking. The 60's style oval C shape and 21 Sanko 6105 frets offers a really comfortable playing experience, while the AAA grade Rosewood fingerboard adds a touch of luxury.
With the Telecaster design being considered by many to be the original workhorse guitar the Custom Shop NAMM 2017 '63 Relic Telecaster needs a pickup pairing that can deliver the classic Tele' twang. With a pair of hand-wound Twisted Tele pickups and Fender's highly revered Greasebucket tone circuit, it boasts a versatile and well balanced selection.
Yet another absolute stunner from the guys at the Fender Custom Shop!
