Fender Custom Shop ’52 Telecaster, Super Heavy Relic – Butterscotch Blonde
Used 2021 Mint Condition
MORE ABOUT ’52 TELECASTER®
The 1952 Fender Telecaster is the quintessential electric guitar that started it all and is still a favorite after all these years. Simplicity of design and the alluring tone that only a Tele® can produce have graced countless recordings and stages over its long lifespan, and the Custom Shop ’52 Telecaster captures the original essence in all its glory. Available in six finishes, the guitar features a two-piece select ash body, a one-piece rift sawn maple neck with a comfortable ’57 “soft V” profile, vintage compound-radius (7.25”-9.5”) fingerboard and 21 narrow tall (6105) frets for comfortable play in all registers.
Custom Shop hand-wound ’50/’51 Blackguard pickups provide perfect vintage-correct tone in combination with ’51 modified Nocaster wiring, which lets the player blend both pickups together in switch position 1. Other features include a single-ply black phenolic pickguard, ’51-’54 Tele bridge with brass barrel saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and disk string tree. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
TIME MACHINE SERIES
Our 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 revolutionized 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.
Super Heavy Relic®
Hard-fought wear and tear.
The heaviest of the Custom Shop relic treatments, designed to evoke decades of the most punishing play and touring. From serious dinging and wear to intensely discolored hardware and finish, the true battle-hardened workhorse of the Custom Shop collection.
