Fender Custom Shop 1963 Journeyman Relic Telecaster Custom - Chocolate 3 Tone Sunburst
The Telecaster Custom upgraded the workhorse Telecaster with an elegant double-bound body and gorgeous 3-Color Sunburst finish—which was considered a custom color, compared to the customary blonde Telecaster finish. The 1963 Telecaster Custom Relic updates this classic design with modern touches to make it even more playable.
The double-bound two-piece body is constructed from hand-selected alder, chosen for its weight and grain pattern. Two hand-wound Custom Shop Twisted Tele pickups grace the top, kicking out high-output, smoking tone that’s further shaped by modern wiring, including our slick, volume-preserving Greasebucket tone circuit.
