Fender Custom Shop 1961 Relic Telecaster - Aged Lake Placid Blue
Warm is not a term not usually used in conjunction with a Telecaster, bit it's the only way to describe the feel and sound of the Fender Custom Shop 1961 Heavy Relic Telecaster. Celebrating the peak of Fender’s Golden Age, this instrument combines modern features with classic style while adding a few idiosyncratic touches all its own.
With its 9.5”-radius flat-lam AAA rosewood fingerboard and a pair of high-output Texas Special single-coil Telecaster pickups, this guitar has plenty of warmth and authentic Telecaster honk, twang and bite. The two-piece alder body was selected by hand for light weight while the carefully aged nitrocellulose lacquer finish allows it to ring out with pure tone.
