The Fender Custom Shop do some pretty special things, and with the Custom Shop '60 Telecaster they hark right back to the early days of Leo Fenders vision. We always try to cater for our left-handed friends and this guitar certainly doesn't disappoint.
The lightweight Alder body is finished in a 3-Tone Sunburst 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 NOS finish gives the appearance of a New Old Stock guitar, one that has been perfectly preserved since 1960 and doesn't feature any kind of ageing or relic work.
The rift sawn Maple neck features a 9.5" radius for a superb playing action without any choking. The 60's style oval C shape and 21 medium jumbo 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 '60 Telecaster needs a pickup pairing that can deliver the classic Tele' twang. With a hand-wound Twisted Tele' pickup at the neck and a HW 67 at the bridge, it boasts a versatile and well balanced selection.
Yet another absolute stunner from the guys at the Fender Custom Shop!
