You are looking at a Fender Custom Shop 1952 Heavy Relic Telecaster Electric Guitar Nocaster Blonde, serial number R14351. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (7 lbs, 1.9 oz.)

Experience all the legendary tone, feel and vibe of Fender's first solidbody electric guitar with the Fender Custom Shop 1952 Heavy Relic Telecaster. This remarkable reissue pays homage to the original Fender workhorse while offering upgrades to meet the demands of the modern player.

The time-tested single-cutaway ash Tele body wears a classic black pickguard and a heavily-worn Nocaster Blonde nitrocellulose lacquer Heavy Relic finish, giving this Tele the look of a guitar that's spent decades in bars and on stage in the hands of an unforgiving rocker. The heavily worn Nocaster "U"-shaped maple neck and fingerboard provide a well-played, broken-in feel while 21 narrow jumbo frets and a more modern 9.5" fingerboard radius offer superb playability from the first fret to the last.

The 1952 Heavy Relic Telecaster comes equipped with a pair of Nocaster single-coil pickups to dish out all the classic Tele tone and twang you crave. The electronics feature a three-way pickup selector, a Master Volume control and a Master Tone control featuring Fender's Greasebucket tone circuit, which allows you to roll off on the high frequencies without sacrificing gain.

The Fender Custom Shop 1952 Heavy Relic Telecaster comes fitted with aged nickel/chrome hardware which includes a 3-Saddle Vintage-Style Strings-Through-Body Tele bridge with brass barrel saddles and a set of American Vintage tuning machines. Comes with the full protection of a tweed hardshell case and includes a Fender Custom Shop Certificate of Authenticity, a Custom Shop cable, a guitar strap, and a CruzTools tool kit.
