1960 Tele Custom, Heavy Relic

This is a 1960 Tele Custom, Heavy Relic. The two-piece select alder body wears an aged lake placid blue finish over Chocolate 3-Tone Sunburst. This is the heaviest of the Relic treatments and imparts the look of a Telecaster that has been used and abused over six-plus decades.

With its 60 Style Oval "C"-shaped quartersawn maple neck and flat-laminated rosewood fingerboard, players get the benefits of a thick, full feeling neck that's comfortable and easy to play. A pair of Custom Shop Hand-Wound Twisted Tele pickups give you high-output tele tone with a dash of sparkling Stratocaster guitar character.

Other premium features include a  9.5" radius, 21 narrow tall (6105) frets, modern tele wiring, 58-63 Tele bridge, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut, wing string tree, deluxe hardshell case, strap, and certificate of authenticity.

A Fender Custom Shop instrument is extraordinary. You know it when you play one—it’s definitely more than the sum of its parts. It’s filled with intangible, electrifying elements that add a new dimension to your playing experience. It’s as if the instrument itself is imbued with history, alive with the spirit of the place where it was built and the devotion of those who crafted it.

The Custom Shop is home to Fender’s most skilled and talented builders. It’s a bustling, noisy and creatively volcanic place that re-earns its nickname—the Dream Factory—every day. Custom Shop builders are completely dedicated to their art—part craftsman, part artist, part music fan and, more often than not, part mad scientist. They’re the best at what they do, and they pour all of their passion, hard-earned knowledge and skill into every instrument they build. It’s no ordinary place, and the creations that come from it are no ordinary instruments. This is Fender Custom Shop.
