2008 Fender Custom Shop '66 "Custom Telecaster" Lake Placid Blue # R42259



I didn't even know that these were available! So it goes without saying that it is the first one I have seen, bar the cover of Marty Stuart's "The Hit Pack" Album and I assume his is a genuine sixties guitar. We have a genuine '66 Sunburst example and the Neck on this one has an almost identical profile, although this one has a "Maple Cap" Fretboard instead of the more common Rosewood! These older, pre CNC and Kiln Dried Timber, Custom Shop Guitars are a great product and this "Relic" is right up there. The Bound, Lake Placid Blue Alder Body, looks great, is Lightweight and they weren't too heavy handed on the "relicing" process. The Maple Neck has a 9.5" radius and it plays great, with a setup that is ready to go. Comes with the original COA and Case Candy, inside the Black Rectangular G&G Case.
