The Fender Custom Shop Heartbreaker Telecaster pays tribute to the vintage Fender that Campbell has relied on for much of his career.

The original Heartbreaker was reverse engineered by Masterbuilder Dale Wilson and documented to the smallest detail before being handed to the Custom Shop team to create 30 stunning replicas.
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 thin Natural lacquer, period correct; this finish features a truly authentic relic ageing.
The rift sawn Flame Maple neck features a 7.25" radius for a superb playing action without any choking. The Custom profile, 21 frets and heavy relic neck finish offer a really organic playing experience.
With the Telecaster design being considered by many to be the original workhorse guitar the Custom Shop Heartbreaker Telecaster needs a pickup pairing that can deliver the classic Tele' twang. With a pair of custom-wound vintage style single coils, it boasts a versatile and well balanced selection.
