Introducing our Fender Custom Shop Telecaster Custom Journeyman Relic! This is a cool Late 60s style Tele with a Wide Range Humbucker in the neck position and an Original Blackguard for the bridge pickup. This one is a featherweight at 6 lbs 15 oz!
The body of this guitar is Swamp Ash, the tonewood used on the earliest Teles. This bright-sounding tonewood has a strong KERRANG when strummed. Finished in Faded 2-Color Sunburst, the grain of the Ash peers through the finish for added depth.
The neck is made from AA Flame, Quarter Sawn Maple, and shaped to a 60-style oval C profile. It measures .850" in depth at the 1st fret and .920" at the 12th. The fingerboard is made from plain maple, has a 9.5" fingerboard radius, and 6105 frets. It's a full-feeling neck that isn't too cumbersome. Other mentionables include Schaller F Key Tuners, a Bullet Truss Adjust, and a 4-Bolt Neck design.
A Wide Range Humbucker in the neck position and a hand-wound Original Blackguard Bridge Pickup combine for tones that span genres and decades. Each pickup has its own controls for volume and tone. A 3-way pickup selector switch makes getting the right tone easy.
