With its imaginative look, feel and authentic sound, the Fender Custom Shop’s Limited Edition Heavy Relic H/S Tele is for the player who wants to look and sound totally unique.
The secret to the modern sound of this guitar is the combination of a hand wound Custom Shop Twisted Tele single-coil bridge pickup and sizzling EVH humbucking neck pickup. The reversed control plate places the 250k/500k stacked volume control and master tone control within easy reach, while also hosting a traditional three-way pickup switch. The vintage-style three-saddle Tele bridge uses threaded steel saddles to enhance the Tele guitar’s inherent bright, snappy tone.
The two-piece body is crafted from hand-selected alder, carefully chosen by the Custom Shop for its tone, weight and appearance. The body and neck both sport a marvelous two-color Heavy Relic lacquer finish, based on one of our classic ‘Wallpaper’ finishes—Candy Apple Red over Pink Paisley. The Limited Edition Heavy Relic H/S Tele melds vintage cool Fender aesthetics and feel with modern tone to create a dream guitar that will perform exceptionally in any player’s hands.
Includes an engraved Limited Edition neck plate, Certificate of Authenticity and deluxe hardshell case.
