Combining authentic Fender feel with a favorite player's modification, the Limited Edition '51 HS Tele Relic adds fat, high output sound to the traditional twang of a Tele. The hand-wound '50-'51 "Crushed" Blackguard single-coil bridge pickup is joined by a Seymour Duncan Seth Lover SH-55 humbucking neck pickup for a one-two punch of tone. We customized a dual-stack HS Tele wiring to create the perfect sonic balance between the two, incorporating 250k/500k potentiometers on the volume and tone controls to ensure compatibility. The two-piece off-center ash body wears a Relic flashcoat lacquer finish, giving it the look and feel of a well-loved instrument that's seen many a stage and tour bus.
Sporting a dark tinted Relic flashcoat lacquer finish, the riftsawn maple neck sports a "10/56 V" shaped profile that's ideal for all playing styles. For ultimate comfort and playability, we topped the neck with a 7.25"-9.5" compound-radius fingerboard and 21 50085 medium-vintage frets. The vintage style Nocaster bridge features compensated brass saddles for authentic Fender tone and superior intonation.
Other features include a 3-way pickup switch, single-ply Black phenolic pickguard, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and round string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
