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
The Telecaster Custom upgraded the workhorse Telecaster with an elegant double-bound body and gorgeous Sheerwood Green finish—which was considered a custom color, compared to the customary blonde Telecaster finish. The 1963 Telecaster Custom Relic updates this classic design with modern touches to make it even more playable.
The double-bound two-piece body is constructed from hand-selected alder, chosen for its weight and grain pattern. Two hand-wound Custom Shop Twisted Tele pickups grace the top, kicking out high-output, smoking tone that’s further shaped by modern wiring, including our slick, volume-preserving Greasebucket tone circuit.
Other features include a Journeyman Relic lacquer finish with Closet Classic hardware, tinted quartersawn Heavy Relic maple neck with 1963 “C”-shaped profile, 9.5”-radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard, 21 6105 frets, three-ply parchment pickguard, ‘58/’63 bridge with threaded saddles, vintage-style tuning machines with Fender logo, bone nut and wing string tree.
Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
