  • DESCRIPTION

The 2018 Fender Custom Shop Relic Telecaster combines classic style with modern features. This guitar stems from a distinctive year for the Telecaster, 1954. The Telecaster received a few updates that year, novel steel barrel bridge saddles were joined by a new “U”-shaped quartersawn maple neck profile and single-ply White Eggshell pickguard. Providing the modern playability of a 9.5” radius fingerboard and 6105 frets, Fender Custom Shop has fashioned a tried and true workhorse.

  The ’54 Relic Telecaster sports Fat 50’s Tele wiring, ’55-’57 Tele bridge assembly and vintage-style tuning machines, along with a hand-wound ’51 Nocaster bridge pickup matched to a hand-wound ’51 Loaded Nocaster neck pickup for perfectly balanced tone. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
