Fender Custom Shop
For over 25 years the extraordinarily talented luthiers of the Fender Custom Shop have been providing the most illustrious guitar players of their day with their dream instruments
Featuring Fender's Heavy Relic treatment, this 1952 Telecaster Reissue electric guitar has the look of years of use on the road with nicks, scratches, worn finish, rusty hardware, and aged plastic parts.
Hearkening back to the exciting period when the Telecaster was a “new-fangled” instrument with surging popularity, the 1952 Heavy Relic Telecaster combines the sound and style of the past with modern features and playability. The lightweight two-piece ash body wears a carefully aged nitrocellulose lacquer finish, giving it the look and feel of a road dog that’s only seen the inside of a case once or twice during its service.
A pair of hand-wound Custom Shop single-coil pickups provides the classic Tele tone—the Twisted Tele neck pickup is joined by a Twisted Tele in the bridge position for an timeless combination. The Vintage wiring style of 1950-1952 help shape this guitars woody, dry, and direct voice.
Other features include a 52 style "U" Neck Profile, '51-'53 Tele Brass Saddles, 1 Piece Maple Neck with Medium Tint Neck, and Vintage Style Knurled Control Knobs.
Includes a deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
