A very special guitar. This Fender 1953 Heavy Relic Telecaster is the kind of instrument that doesn't take any time to get used to, but rather feels just right from the moment you pick it up. The aging done to this tele is nothing short of art. From the finish scraping on the top as if you've toured with the guitar for years, to the faded lacquer on the back of the neck. This guitar says "I've been on the road for years and I'm ready to go out again." Two years after its 1951 debut, the Telecaster was an established success, prized for its sound and style and well on its way to stage and studio indispensability. Further, 1953 marked its final year as Fender’s sole solid-body electric Spanish guitar model. The Custom Shop pays homage to Fender’s early-’50s workhorse guitar with the Fender 1953 Heavy Relic Telecaster. Features include a lightweight ash body with a Nocaster® Blonde lacquer finish given a heavily worn “Heavy Relic” treatment, tinted one-piece maple neck with ’57 soft V shape, maple fingerboard with 9.5” radius and 6105 frets, vintage-design 1950s Telecaster pickups, three-way pickup switch with modern wiring, single-ply black Bakelite pickguard, vintage-style hardware and certificate of authenticity.
