Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilt Ron Thorn Roasted '52 Telecaster Relic, 2 Colour Sunburst

inc. VAT ex. VAT

If you are looking for the ultimate '52 Telecaster from the Fender Custom Shop then look no further, built to perfection by Ron Thorn this is a chance to own one of the most resonant, full sounding Teles that we have had come into the shop. Featuring a lightweight Roasted Ash Body with a set of Handwound '50-'51 Blackguard Tele pickups, an absolutely stunning 1-piece Roasted AAA Flame Maple neck with the period correct '52 style 'U' neck shape and a modern 9.5" Radius with 6105 frets. Finished in a unique relic package to give you that authentic vintage guitar look and feel. We are huge fans of Ron's work and it's easy to see why, his care and attention to detail for every aspect of the build are second to none, the timber selection is always on point with a gorgeous figure and balanced weight, the set-up straight out the box is incredible and his very tasteful finishing process never disappoints.

A stunning instrument with lots of character and a true vintage modern appeal!
