Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Tomatillo Tele, Journeyman Relic, Maple Neck – Super Faded Aged Tahitian Coral
MORE ABOUT LIMITED EDITION TOMATILLO TELE® JOURNEYMAN RELIC®
Combining vintage style with modern luxuries, the Limited Edition Tomatillo Tele uses underwound Tomatillo Tele pickups with Alnico 2 magnets to deliver sweet, flavorful tone.
The combination of a two-piece select ash body with one-piece rift-sawn maple neck is perfect for allowing all the subtle nuances of the pickups to shine through while playing. The neck features a ’57-style “soft V” profile, vintage compound compound radius fingerboard (7.25”- 9.5”) and 21 narrow tall (6105) frets. The Tomatillos are wired up to a ’51 Modified Nocaster wiring with a blender pot instead of master tone. A Fat ’50s control assembly ships in the case for those who prefer that sound and style.
Additional features include a single-ply parchment pickguard, reverse-angle Nocaster bridge with compensated RSD brass saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and disc string tree. 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.
