Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition 50s Twisted Tele, Custom Journeyman Relic, 1-Piece 2A Flame Maple Neck – Aged Ocean Turquoise
MORE ABOUT LIMITED EDITION 50S TWISTED TELE® CUSTOM JOURNEYMAN RELIC®
The Limited Edition 50s Twisted Tele Custom Journeyman Relic is everything you would imagine from the Fender Custom Shop—from vintage swagger to all the little enhancements that create a one-of-a-kind playing experience. The two-piece ash body wears a Journeyman Relic lacquer finish, which is the perfect amount of relic for players who intend to inflict more natural wear and tear themselves. The one-piece 2A flame maple neck boasts a ’57 soft “V” profile, vintage compound radius (7.25”-9.5”) and 21 narrow tall (6105) frets. We reversed the angle of the hand-wound Twisted Tele bridge pickup to fatten up the treble strings and tighten the bass side for customized tonal perfection, while the hand-wound Twisted Tele neck pickup is mounted to the body for extra stability and stronger tone. Three-way switching and Fat ’50s Tele wiring produce juicier tone and more transparent bloom.
Other features include a single-ply eight-hole parchment pickguard, reverse Nocaster® bridge with compensated brass saddles for perfect intonation, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut, and single wing string tree. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
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.
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.
