Overview by GAK
Crafted by the legendary Fender Custom Shop, this Telecaster combines the best aspects of vintage and modern. The result is an incredible instrument that exhibits the world-class quality of a Fender Custom Shop.
Classic Feel & Sound
This particular Fender CS Tele is based on a '63 model, which gives it a classic feel and a vintage vibe. This is enhanced by the Quarter Sawn Maple neck, which features a comfortable 60’s style Oval C shape. The neck is adorned with a beautiful Dark Rosewood fretboard, which was hand-selected for its darkness. The 6100 jumbo frets imbue this guitar with modern playability, allowing you to pull off virtuosic runs and expressive bends with ease.
The robust yet lightweight Alder body is lavished in a gorgeous nitrocellulose finish. It’s the core of this Tele’s sound, providing it with a balanced and resonant tone.
This Telecaster has been given the Custom Shop’s Relic treatment, which gives it the authentic worn-in and well-played wear of a beloved instrument. This guitar has a story to tell, are you ready to add to it?
Vintage Tele Tone
The natural voice of this Fender Custom Shop Tele is bolstered by a pair of well-matched '63 Telecaster single-coils, which have the sweet twang and chiming articulation that you’d expect from a great Tele. The Modern Tele wiring allows you to coax out all the quintessential tones and more.
Thanks to the Custom Shop’s acclaimed built-quality and fantastic components, this Telecaster has the pro-grade reliability that you’d want from a modern workhorse. With Fender Gotoh tuners and vintage-style bridge with threaded saddles, you can count on this CS Tele to deliver rock-solid tuning and precise intonation.
The Fender Custom Shop has knocked it out of the park with this Telecaster, fusing the best elements of a classic vintage instrument with the slick playability of a modern, professional guitar.
