About This Guitar
Fender Custom Shop 1961 Telecaster Relic - Faded 3 Color Sunburst - Hand-Wound Texas Special Pickups
The Fender Time Machine 1961 Telecaster Relic® honors that year’s model, with original features and a few slight modifications to improve the overall playing experience.
The two-piece select alder body has a Thin Relic lacquer finish and a three-ply nitro mint green pickguard. The quartersawn maple neck features a comfortable “oval-C” profile and smooth unfinished back for streamlined feel and seamless play, topped with a 9.5”-radius flat-lam rosewood fretboard with 21 narrow tall frets.
Fender's hand-wound Texas Special™ pickups serve up spicy hot Tele tone, and modern Tele wiring with Greasebucket™ tone circuit lets players roll off highs while preserving midrange tone and without adding bass. Other great features include a '61 Telecaster bridge with threaded saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and single “wing” string tree. Includes is a deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
