MORE ABOUT LIMITED EDITION CABALLO TONO LIGERO RELIC®
The Caballo Tono Ligero or “light tone horse” is a customized creation only found in the Fender Custom Shop, which plays host to extraordinary features not found in classical Fender fashion. The lightweight, resonant hollow ash body features an f-hole and has a perfectly worn-in relic lacquer finish. A stunning one-piece 3A flame maple neck with a 10/56 “V” profile and 9.5” fingerboard radius wears narrow tall (6105) frets for comfortably precise playing.
A pair of chrome T.V. Jones® pickups offers an uncommon growl right between a bright single-coil and a dark humbucker, providing a perfectly personal tone. A three-way switch and Fat ’50s Tele wiring with 500K pots provide balance and complementary response between the pickups. Additional features include a single-ply parchment Caballo Tono pickguard, sawed off Tele® bridge with compensated brass RSD saddles, Sperzel® Deluxe tuning machines with pearl buttons, bone nut and a vintage disc string tree. Includes a 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.
There and back—and still here today.
The authentic worn-in wear of a guitar that has experienced many years of regular use in clubs and bars. Marks that tell a story, finish checking all over the body, and scars, dings and dents from bridge to headstock.
