Fender Custom Shop Limited '50s Vibra Tele, Heavy Relic, Aged Butterscotch Blonde
Get your Fender Custom Shop Guitar from Humbucker Music, an authorized Fender Showcase Dealer with over 100 Fender Custom Shop guitars for sale at all times
The artisans at the Fender Custom Shop created a Tele lover's dream: the Limited Edition '50s Vibra Tele Heavy Relic, the crème de la crème of Tele guitars. They started with a '50/'51 Blackguard single-coil bridge pickup, then added two of the most popular, time-tested Tele mods: a Bigsby B5 vibrato tailpiece and a Seymour Duncan Seth Lover humbucking neck pickup. Placed directly at the seventh harmonic for perfect, balanced tone, this pickup adds a unique note to the traditional Tele twang. Dual Stack HS Tele wiring ensures the pickups play nicely with each other, from an electrical standpoint; dual-stack 250k and 500k potentiometers guarantee each pickup operates at optimum resistance.
The two-piece select ash body wears a thin Heavy Relic lacquer finish, giving it the look of an instrument that’s spent its life being played onstage. The one-piece tinted quartersawn maple neck has a '57 Soft V profile and a 9.5" radius fingerboard with 21 #6105 frets for a contemporary playing feel. Other features include 3-way switching, period-correct Black phenolic pickguard, 21 narrow-tall frets, vintage-style tuning machines with Fender logo, bone nut and disc string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
