Fender Custom Shop 1963 Relic Telecaster (Limited)


Add to Cart

Extremely rare limited edition build from the Fender Custom Shop picked out personally by the team at Casino Guitars. This was one of the first guitars we saw and swooned for when we entered the vaults of the FCS exclusive collection. From the matching headstock to the gorgeous relic on the body we knew we had to have her! When we first wrapped all of our needy hands around the neck it was as if the sword of Excalibur had somehow been transported to California and transformed into a guitar. There was no putting this telecaster down. We love that it was the first we fell for and the first to find its way here for us to share with our fantastic customers!

The pickups sound very much like a vintage tele of this period. There is a no doubting you are playing a Telecaster when you pick up this axe. The "glassy" sound of this period sneaks in subtley as you switch into the middle selector position. The neck is warm and such with a nice bloom in the low end. And the bridge barks and spanks as you would expect a tele to do without any of the harshness often associated with these lovely steeds. 

The neck fits wonderfully and is a nice comfortable "C." It fills the hand nicely without being too large by any stretch. And the shoulders increase smoothly and gradually as you move up the fretboard. The modern frets allow for an excellent playing experience and the finish...oh the finish. This is one beautiful guitar! It is one of those guitars that is very difficult to put down just simply because how attractive and classic she looks and feels.
