Fender Representative Angus Marshall taking the fabulous Fiesta for a stroll.
Sensational playing and sounding guitar! Great value Limited Edition Custom Shop.
An elegant instrument with a striking bound top, the Postmodern Tele combines classic elements with modern features that should entice any player to pick it up. The two-piece body is crafted from alder selected for its weight and grain, and its Journeyman Relic® lacquer finish gives it the look and feel of a well-loved original piece while letting the wood breathe with more sustain and wearing in a personal style. Fast-playing and supple, the tinted riftsawn maple neck sports a comfortable “ ‘60s –Style Oval C”-shaped profile and hosts a modern, 12”-radius round-lam maple fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets for a familiar, contemporary playing experience. A classic pairing, we combined a Hand-Wound Original Blackguard single-coil bridge pickup with a Twisted Tele single-coil neck pickup—all tied together with Fat ‘50s Tele wiring—for hot, vintage-informed tone that can only come from Fender.
Other features include a 3-ply Mint Green nitrocellulose pickguard, contoured neck heel for comfortable upper register access, ’58-’63 Tele bridge with RSD saddles for accurate intonation, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree with metal spacer. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.

Not bound to any particular year or design era, reverently irreverent Custom Shop Postmodern guitars represent six decades of “Fender firsts” based simply on our own subjective view of what works best in a single instrument. Player friendly with enhanced sonic and ergonomic features, the Postmoderns open the door to an even wider range of individual musical expression and creativity.
Handed down or changed hands through the years but mostly played around the house, with the occasional jam session or weekend gig. Has been well taken care of over the years but has moderate ware, finish checking, and some “friendly” down- to-the-wood nicks and dings, dullish hardware, and moderate wear-a very lucky find.
Each Custom Shop Limited Edition instrument is only available for a short time, which makes it eminently collectible and adds to its investment value. Crafted with many features reserved only for certain artists and master-built instruments, they are just what the name says they are: highly anticipated limited-edition models that go very quickly.
