Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Closet Classic HLE Gold Telecaster
The Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Closet Classic HLE Gold Telecaster is a sterling example of the Custom Shop’s mastery of their craft. Inspired by a custom Strat created in the ‘50s for Homer Haynes, this golden gem of a guitar is a loving tribute to the first limited-edition Custom Shop model, released in 1987. An instrument that looks as breathtaking as it sounds!
Two single-coil hand-wound Custom Shop ’58 Telecaster pickups provide classic, genuine Fender tone; the snarling bridge pickup and warm neck pickup work in tandem to match any style of music. The two-piece ash body was hand-selected for both weight and tone, and wears a lacquer finish over its gleaming paint job—just like the elegant original.
