Actual pics taken of the Candy Tele.
Rock ‘n’ roll ruled the scene in 1957. Cars grew fins, the space race got under way, and the Telecaster® was en vogue with a new look. In transition from the original “blackguard” models of the first half of the decade, the ’57 Telecaster now had new features including a translucent white blonde lacquer finish over an ash body, a white pickguard, a one-piece maple neck with a new “soft-V” back shape, stainless steel “barrel” bridge saddles and a bridge pickup with staggered pole pieces.
In celebration of this classic Tele®, we’ve recreated the original as closely as possible while adding a few custom player-centric features. The two-piece ash body has a Journeyman Relic® lacquer finish and single-ply “eggshell” pickguard. The one-piece rift-sawn maple neck has a tinted lacquer finish, custom “soft-V” back shape with a slightly thicker carve toward the first fret, 9.5” fingerboard radius and narrow tall frets. Hand-wound ’55-’56 pickups are connected to a Fat ’50s control assembly for stronger overall tone with more transparent bloom. Other features include a ’55-’57 bridge with steel “barrel” saddles and vintage-style tuning machines. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
