Fender Custom Shop '52 Telecaster Relic, Maple Neck - Aged Nocaster Blonde

Brand: Fender Custom Shop

Sold out, please call 02 9817 2173 for next shipment.

The 1952 Fender Telecaster is the quintessential electric guitar that started it all and is still a favorite after all these years. Simplicity of design and the alluring tone that only a Tele® can produce have graced countless recordings and stages over its long lifespan, and the Custom Shop ’52 Telecaster captures the original essence in all its glory. Available in six finishes, the guitar features a two-piece select ash body, a one-piece rift sawn maple neck with a comfortable ’57 “soft V” profile, vintage compound-radius (7.25”-9.5”) fingerboard and 21 narrow tall (6105) frets for comfortable play in all registers.

Custom Shop hand-wound ’50/’51 Blackguard pickups provide perfect vintage-correct tone in combination with ’51 modified Nocaster wiring, which lets the player blend both pickups together in switch position 1. Other features include a single-ply black phenolic pickguard, ’51-’54 Tele bridge with brass barrel saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and disk string tree.

Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap, and a certificate of authenticity.
