Our exclusive Fender Custom Shop 50s Telecaster Relic 1 Piece Ash in Black has been a huge success! Fender's 1 piece bodies have a complex, vibrant tone thanks to the uniform resonance of the 1 piece Ash body. As we all know, Fender will be limiting the use of Swamp Ash moving forward so these 1 Piece Swamper's are going to become more difficult to get! Twisted Tele Pickups, a Soft V Neck profile, 9.5" radius, 6105 frets, and compensated brass saddles combine for authentic 50's tone with a neck pickup from the Tone-God's themselves!
Our 1 Piece Tele Relic's are really resonant, even unplugged. You can feel the body and neck vibrating in unison. A bright and bold KERRANG comes blasting off this guitar when strummed, unplugged. The 1 piece Swamp Ash body has been sorted for lightweight which helps this guitar weighs in at 7 lbs 5 oz.
While we love the Nocaster Pickup set but the Twisted Tele Pickups are a perfect Modern match for the 1 piece Ash body. The bridge pickup has that vintage, twangy tone with a good mid-range cut but the neck pickup is based on a Strat neck pickup and carries a bit more top end and output making it a much better lead guitar pickup than a traditional Tele. A master volume, master tone, and three-way blade switch grants access to all your favorite tones.
The neck is made from quarter-sawn maple for added stability and carved to a 57 Soft V profile. This neck shape is a bit slimmer than the average 10/56 and the V is very soft, undetectable to some. It is very easy to play and control thanks to the 9.5" fingerboard radius and 6105 frets. You will have a hard time putting this one down!
