Fender Custom Shop 1952 H/S Telecaster Relic in Tahitian Coral R111818

Regular price $4,255.00 $3,675.00 Sale

This Fender Custom Shop 1952 H/S Telecaster Relic in Tahitian Coral is a seriously cool Tele with a beefy sounding Seymour Duncan Antiquity Humbucker in the neck position. This adds an extra dimension to the tones this guitar can produce. Still a classic Tele in the bridge thanks to a hand-wound Broadcaster pickup so this guy can go from bright, biting, and snarling to fat soaring leads with some serious low-end beef that sounds perfect for comping Jazz chords.

I immediately appreciated the Reversed Control Plate. A feature many don't fully appreciate until they experience it. Having the Volume control within reach of your pinky is a huge plus, especially if you fidget with the controls a lot. Even a manual tremolo is easily pulled off with the modded location. This also put the pickup switch out of harm's way so there is no chance of you changing pickups while going crazy with the right hand.

The neck is a mid 60’s C shape; a perfectly medium-sized neck. It's Thicker than the early '60s but with less heft than a Nocaster. It's a very friendly feeling neck profile for those of us with average hands who want something Not Thin. Topped with 6100 frets and a 9.5" radius, this guitar plays incredibly well no matter the chord, scale, or position.

This Tele is finished in Tahitian Coral. To my eyes, Tahitian Coral and Faded Fiesta Red are pretty close but Tahitian being a true Pink. Albeit a Dark Pink, on the opposite side of the spectrum as Shell Pink but certainly Pink and not Red. We have been loving this color lately and have been ordering it on all of our in-house Custom Shop runs.
