Fender Custom Shop 1952 Telecaster Relic Aged Natural Blonde


Add to Cart
The Telecaster is one of the most iconic instruments of the modern era and the Fender Custom Shop has stepped up to create a piece that is beyond a simple homage to that. This Telecaster is a workhorse, a delight to play, and a feast for the eyes. From the minute you open the case this guitar grabs you. The playability is amazing but my oh my the mojo in this one is strong. There is an unmistakable magic to this Tele and we absolutely love it!

The tone is truly vintage in an early 50's way. There is a woodenness that comes through the pickups that translates into a very percussive playing experience. Even with the hot rodded Twisted Tele pickups there is a vintage and underfund nature to these pups. It really does have the sound of what we imagine Keiths guitars would hold. 

The neck is the vintage "U" shape but it doesn't feel too large. This neck has the magic in it with a bit of flame to make the ride just a bit more fun! We absolutely love this guitar and James is obsessed with this guitar!
