This Fender Custom Shop 1960 Telecaster Custom Relic in Black is one of our favorite guitars. Featuring a lightweight Ash body, quarter sawn maple neck, AAA Rosewood fingerboard, and a set of hand-wound Twisted Tele pickup this is a player-friendly Tele that has all the right specs to make it your #1! Weighing in at only 6 lbs 7 oz (and dethroning our previous Light Weight Champ by just one ounce), this one will be easy on a strap during long rehearsal or sets.
The hand-wound Twisted Tele pickups give you all the Tele twang and bite you can handle. The bridge pickup snaps and growls with plenty of twang for the country picker. The neck pickup is smooth and warm with well-balanced highs and lows and a slightly punchy midrange. in the middle position, you'll find the best of both worlds. A brilliant top end with sparkle but a warm richness on the low side and a perfectly scooped midrange gives you quintessential Tele tones! The traditional Tele electronics of a master volume, master tone, and 3-way toggle are present for easy access to all the tones you'll need.
The Mid 60's Oval C neck shape is one of Fender's most popular neck profiles. It is a bit on the slimmer side with a nice taper that fattens up as you work your way up the neck. The 9.5" radius and 6105 frets make playability a breeze. Big bends and vibrato are easy while the guitars sustain nicely.
