The Fender 1952 Heavy Relic Telecaster hearkens back to an exciting period when the Telecaster was a "new-fangled" instrument with surging popularity. It combines the sound and style of the past with modern features and playability. The lightweight two-piece ash body wears a carefully aged nitrocellulose lacquer finish, giving it the look and feel of a road dog that’s only seen the inside of a case once or twice during its service.
A pair of hand-wound Custom Shop single-coil pickups provides the classic Tele tone - the Twisted Tele neck pickup is joined by a fat-sounding “Broadcaster” bridge pickup for an unbeatable combination. Modern wiring, including a Greasebucket tone circuit that preserves volume when rolling back the tone control, shapes the pickups’ voice.
