From a "Golden Era" for the Fender Custom Shop! This one is as light a Telecaster you are likely to come across! Thin Blonde Finished Swamp Ash Body, with a period correct Rock Maple Neck and "Slab" Rosewood, 7.25" Radius Fretboard, with Vintage Spec Frets. The Pickguard is a single ply, as they were until 1963's introduction of the 3 layered guards. The"Relic" job on this Tele is a very convincing one and it looks just right, like a guitar that has been played over the years, but with a few nicks and dings. So this one is made of seasoned timbers, not kiln dried, it was also produced prior to the CNC "invasion" of the Fender Custom Shop. A really good sounding Telecaster that plays great as well. Comes with a Brown tolex case filled with the Case Candy and COA. Gotta love this one!
