We love this Tele … just traded back on a Fender Artisan Tele Custom Shop. Pictured with a White USA pickguard, original Green guard in case.
The Fender Custom Shop 1963 Relic® Telecaster® takes you back to the early years of one of modern music’s most electrifying decades. Its alder body comes in Three-Colour Sunburst, Olympic White and Blue Ice Metallic lacquer Relic finishes, with signature Telecaster snap and sparkle coming from dual American Vintage Telecaster pickups with three-way switching and Fender’s Greasebucket™ tone circuit, which rolls off highs without reducing gain.
Other premium features include a quartersawn maple neck with a comfortable mid-’60s “oval C” profile, 9.5″-radius “round-laminated” rosewood fingerboard with 21 narrow jumbo frets, three-ply mint green pickguard, American Vintage Telecaster bridge with threaded saddles, and American Vintage tuning machines. Includes black textured vinyl hard-shell case with red interior.
Fender’s shrine to the heritage and legacy of those pioneers who made us what we are today. The Fender Custom Shop reached new heights of craftsmanship with its acclaimed Time Machine series—artfully “relic-ed” guitars and basses that revolutionised the entire concept of “reissue” instruments. The Custom Shop has since ventured even higher by crafting meticulous replicas “using the same techniques and tooling used to create the originals” all those years ago.
