This 2013 Fender Custom Shop 63 Telecaster Relic in Shell Pink is in on consignment and it is in fantastic shape. It has seen only a few hours of play as part of a massive collection and included the matching Strat we have that was actually finished the same day according to the cert! The neck is straight, the frets are still crowned, and the truss rod is functioning properly. Included with the guitar is the original hardshell case and certificate of authenticity.
The neck is made from a quartersawn piece of 5/4 Maple. It's shaped to a 60's Style Oval C shape then topped with a dark rosewood fingerboard. The fingerboard is then shaped to have a 9.5" radius. 6105 Sanko frets have been installed for a nice tall fret. With a depth of .820" at the 1st fret, .890" at the 12th fret, we have a nice medium-sized neck, right in the middle of the road. 1.650" nut width and 25.5" scale length round out the important stuff.
Shell Pink is a classic Fender color, one of our favorite soft colors from the company. This one has patina-ed nicely over the last 7 years, so the finish has darkened a bit over a factory-fresh Shell Pink. It meshes well with the 3 Ply Mint Green Pickguard, another tasty visual touch.
A set of Handwound Twisted Tele pickups are installed and they are easily our Neck-and-Neck favorite with the Nocaster Pickups. The Twisted Tele's have more output so they can push an amp to drive faster but they are smothered in that same special Fender Sauce that has kept player's coming back for 7 decades!
Nobody treats used guitars as we do at The Music Gallery! Every trade-in goes through an inspection, cleaning, restring, and set up before being put out on sale. We even put guitars with bad frets through our Plek machine if need be. If this service piques your interest learn more here or give us a call!
