About This Guitar

Fender 70's Telecaster Custom Relic Limited Edition Custom Shop - Aged Natural - Custom Shop Wide-Range CuNiFe Humbucker

A classic recreation of the Fender ’72 Telecaster® Custom with some new twists. The Limited Edition Tele® Custom Journeyman Relic® showcases a classic best-of-both-worlds hybrid design. The two-piece ash body has a Journeyman Relic lacquer finish. The quartersawn AA flame maple neck has a tinted finish and a comfortable “oval-C” profile. It is topped by a 9.5”-radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard with mother-of-pearl position markers and 21 narrow tall frets.

An enlarged three-ply black pickguard holds a hot “cunife” (copper-nickel-iron) humbucking neck pickup with a gritty midrange bite, paired with a hand-wound original Fender Blackguard Tele bridge pickup. These are wired to 250k (bridge pickup) and 500k (neck pickup) volume and tone pots - giving each pickup the ideal resistance for the best possible tone. Other features include a vintage-style Tele bridge with slotted steel saddles, four-bolt neck plate, “wing” string tree with nylon spacer, and vintage-style “F” tuners. Includes a deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
