Fender Custom Shop ’58 Telecaster, Journeyman Relic, Maple Neck – Aged HLE Gold(Pre-order)
MORE ABOUT ’58 TELECASTER® JOURNEYMAN RELIC®
As the Telecaster progressed through the years there were updates to components, colors, neck shapes and more, but through it all it retained its classic look and signature snappy tone. The ’58 Telecaster Journeyman Relic embodies several of these classic changes in a faithful custom recreation. A two-piece select ash body wears a slightly worn-in Journeyman Relic lacquer finish for the look and feel of a well-played and loved guitar. The one-piece quartersawn maple neck has a 10/’56 “V” profile, 9.5” fingerboard radius and 21 narrow tall (6105) frets.
Dual Custom Shop hand-wound ’58 Tele pickups are connected to Fat ’50s Tele wiring and a three-way switch for robust Tele tone and transparent bloom with each note. Other features include a single-ply parchment pickguard, period correct top-load/string-through Tele bridge with threaded steel saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut, and wing string tree. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
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.
Used but not abused.
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 finish checking, some “friendly” down-to-the-wood nicks and dings, dullish hardware, and moderate playing wear—a very lucky find.
