Overview by GAK

This Telecaster is a stunning example of the acclaimed Fender Custom Shop’s craftsmanship. Built by world-class luthiers with only the finest materials, this Telecaster is a truly special instrument. Sporting a sleek Metallic Purple finish, this Tele seamlessly blends modern and vintage to create an awe inspiring instrument.

Classic Feel & Sound

Using the iconic 63 Telecaster as its base, this Custom Shop guitar has an eminently classic quality that reminds you of a vintage instrument. With the comfortable '60s style Oval C neck, it also plays like an instrument from that golden age. The Quarter Sawn Maple neck is adorned with a beautiful Dark Rosewood fretboard (which was specially selected for its alluring darkness) and 6105 frets (perfect for that vintage tone & feel).

At the core of this Fender CS Telecaster’s tone is its Alder body, which provides that warm resonance, singing sustain and note clarity that you’d expect from a prized Fender. Coated with a nitrocellulose Metallic Purple finish, this Tele brings a modern edge to its otherwise vintage vibe.

The Custom Shop Heavy Relic treatment means this Tele has been carefully worn-in, resulting in a guitar that oozes soul and mojo. It looks like a well-played and loyal companion, evoking decades of gigging and performing.

Vintage Tele Tone

Providing the quintessential snap, twang and chime are the '63 Custom Shop Telecaster single-coils. Combined with the Modern Tele wiring, this guitar can go from warm & mellow to biting & aggressive with ease. All the classic Tele tones are here and they’ve rarely sounded better!

Modern Reliability

Whilst this Telecaster evokes the fantastic sound and feel of an instrument from a bygone era, it’s high-quality components and hardware make it as reliable as any modern workhorse instrument. If you need to bring a vintage Fender tone to your gig or session, this Telecaster won’t let you down.

Merging all the best parts of a sought-after Telecaster with Custom Shop build-quality and a riveting Metallic Purple finish, this is a guitar that you’re bound to pick up and never put down.
