Overview by GAK

This beautiful Telecaster was lovingly crafted by the artisan luthiers over at the Fender Custom Shop. Their expertise and thorough knowledge produces some of the best instruments in the world. Featuring a vintage-accurate spec and an astonishing sound, this Tele will make a fantastic addition to your collection.

Classic Feel & Sound

This guitar uses a '52 Tele - one of the most sought-after Fender instruments - as its foundation, which gives it an authentically vintage heart. The timeless playability is catered for by the 1-piece Quarter Sawn Maple neck. Featuring a robust '52 style U profile, this provides a substantial and comfortable feel whilst adding weight to this guitar’s natural voice.

The period-correct Ash body gives this guitar a tone that perfectly balances crystalline brightness and encompassing warmth.

New Old Stock

As part of the Custom Shop’s Time Machine series, this Tele has undergone the New Old Stock treatment. It’s as if the guitar were created in 1952 and then left untouched for decades, only to be rediscovered in a flawless state. With no checking or ageing to be seen, this guitar’s story is ready to be told.

Vintage Tele Tone

The classic Telecaster tone is catered for by the '51 Nocaster pickups. These single-coils encapsulate the timelessness of the Telecaster and why they’re still loved to this day, boasting the beautiful chime and definitive twang that you’d expect from a top-notch Tele. Used in tandem with the Modern Tele wiring, you can pull off those quintessential tones with ease.

Modern Reliability

Thanks to the Custom Shop’s world-class built-quality and their use of premium components, this Telecaster can be counted on to deliver like a modern workhorse whilst retaining its vintage character. If you love '50s Telecasters and hate the constant care & maintenance that one requires, this Custom Shop version is a great choice.

Bona fide '50s Telecasters are some of the most desirable vintage guitars out there. With this Custom Shop '52 model, you can enjoy the amazing tone and feel of a vintage instrument at a fraction of the price.
