Each Custom Shop Limited Edition instrument is only available for a short time, making it eminently collectible and adding to its investment value. The Fender Limited Edition '63 Telecaster Super Heavy Relic in Super Faded Aged Sea Foam Sparkle gives ultra-smooth playing feel and authentic sound, using the same techniques and tooling as the originals.
Proudly bearing the heaviest of the Custom Shop relic treatments, this guitar has the brutal battle scars of a guitar that saw the transition from rock 'n' roll to rock. The two-piece lightweight ash body is coated with a nitrocellulose lacquer finish that will breathe as it continues to age, ensuring that resonance and sustain are uninhibited. The tinted riftsawn maple neck is stable and easy on the hands, thanks to the '60s Oval C profile that works for almost any playing style. Refined for modern guitarists, the round-laminated AAA Rosewood fingerboard's 9.5" radius and 21 #6105 frets make it supremely comfortable for playing.
A Broadcaster bridge pickup and Twisted Tele direct-mounted neck pickup provide signature Telecaster snap and sparkle. Each pickup is Hand Wound for subtle nuance and character that is true to its sonic heritage. Fat 50s wiring provides natural treble bleed and a stronger full-range tone with a more dynamic attack. Other premium features include a vintage-style bridge with threaded steel saddles, 3-ply mint green pickguard, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut, and an engraved "Limited Edition" neck plate. Includes Deluxe Hardshell Case, Strap and Limited Edition Certificate.
