This guitar is back on trade after just a few months in it's original owners possession. It hardly saw any action and is still in primo shape. Included with the guitar is the original hardshell case and certificate of authenticity.
This Fender Custom Shop 50s Telecaster Relic in Lake Placid Blue was built with a one piece Swamp Ash body so it is nice and light weight at just 6 lbs 15 oz. The one piece bodies certainly don’t hurt resonance as these sing with sustain. Even unplugged this guitar has a lot of volume and depth. It rings acoustically with a striking 'kerrang!' that grabs the ears and holds it's attention. The classic Brass Saddles and Steel Bridge combo are decidedly 50's in terms of tone.
We switched the neck to a friendly 57 Soft V Profile, similar to what you’d find on a Clapton Signature Strat but with an even softer V on it. We have the radius carved to a 9.5” radius then the fretboard is topped with 6105 frets. The result is a fast playing, easy bending Tele that far exceeds the playability of the guitar’s from the actual 1950’s!
A set of Twisted Tele pickups provide a higher out put neck pickup that is a little more Strat-like than the typical Tele neck pickup. It's more open and airy than your usual Tele neck pickup. The bridge pickup has snap, bite, snarl… just a fantastic sounding bridge pickup! Both pickups play very nicely with the onboard tone and master volume control. A wealth of usable tones exist with in these dials!
