The Custom Shop are making incredible Fender Guitars and the Custom Shop Showcase guitars offer even more. A store owner needs to go into a draw to win the opportunity to buy the display model. The others have to order and wait for theirs to be built 🙂 Here is one of those very special instruments built to entice a store to order one for their display.
Combining the classic style with modern features, this guitar stems from a distinctive year for the Telecaster®—1954. The Telecaster® received a few updates that year, novel steel barrel bridge saddles were joined by a new “U”-shaped quartersawn maple neck profile and single-ply White Eggshell pickguard. Matchless in look and tone, our ‘54 Heavy Relic® is loyal recreation of this classic with its period-correct top hat switch tip and hand-wound pickups. Providing the modern playability of a 9.5”-radius fingerboard with 6105 frets, Fender® Custom Shop has fashioned a tried and true workhorse for today’s nostalgic player.
Combining the best of the past and present, the ’54 Relic® Telecaster® sports Fat 50’s Tele® wiring, ’55-’57 Tele® bridge assembly and vintage-style tuning machines, along with a hand-wound ’51 Nocaster® bridge pickup matched to a hand-wound ’Texas Special® neck pickup for perfectly balanced tone, 3-way switch, bone nut and round string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Two Certificate of Authenticity.
