Our exclusive Fender Custom Shop 50s Telecaster Relic 1 Piece Ash in Copper has a key ingredient that just can't be beaten. 1 Piece Swamp Ash bodies! These 1 piece bodies from the Fender Custom Shop have a complex, vibrant tone thanks to uniform resonance. Our 1st in Copper, this color looks killer when aged! Especially because weather checking on metallic finishes is always cool.
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 4 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!
