Experience history with the Custom Shop’s 1952 Telecaster, designed with brilliant attention to detail to faithfully recreate the timeless essence of the Tele that started it all. The hand-selected 2-piece ash body — paired with a solid 1-piece, rift-sawn maple neck — captures the aesthetic and tonal elegance of this founding Fender. The classic comfort of the ’57-style soft “V” neck profile is topped with 21 narrow-tall frets, providing thumb-over players with a vintage 7.25–9.5-inch compound-radius. Era-accurate tones are easily achieved, thanks to the Custom Shop’s hand-wound ’50/’51 Blackguard pickups, which are outfitted with ’51 Modified Nocaster wiring. Vintage flares range from the tuning machines, the bone nut, and the disk string tree, all the way down to the ’51-’54 brass barrel saddles in the bridge. It all equates to a timeless Tele that isn’t just for show!

The hand-selected, 2-piece ash body not only looks the historic part, but it honors the timeless tones that have been gracing records since its inception. Highly shock-resistant, ash is physically and tonally sturdy, imparting a loud, gleaming character that is reinforced by strong mids and hearty low-end punch. A 1-piece maple neck provides a sonic consistency that reliably produces crystalline, bright tones. The responsive mid and upper registers are accompanied by solid sustain and straightforward overtones in the lows. Together, a wonderfully balanced profile combines great projection and note-separation with tight bass and robust highs, revolving around a sturdy middle register that is underpinned by a vintage warmth.
