You are looking at a Fender Custom Shop 1963 Relic Telecaster Electric Guitar Faded Shell Pink, serial number R70226. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (7 lbs, 2 oz.)

Based on the 1963 Telecaster. Beloved for not only its true Tele tone, but also for its fast, comfortable neck.  The '63 Custom ShopTelecaster Relic features a back-loading bridge (a must for the traditional Tele player), modern caps and switching, and a pair of Fender Custom Shop Twisted Tele pickups. Its lightweight two-piece alder body is finished with a thin coat of lacquer, just as they were back in '63. The neck has a very playable, comfortable, and fast quartersawn "C" profile.

The '63 series features selected AAA dark rosewood with modern appointments including Dunlop 6105 jumbo frets and a 9.5" neck radius. Each 1963 Custom Tele is given the unique "Relic" aging proses and has the vintage vibe and sound, with just the right amount of modern features to make this a Tele players dream.

This '63 Relic Tele comes fully protected by a black tolex hardshell case with an orange amp logo. Included inside the case is a cruztool tool box kit so you can properly maintain this finely crafted instrument and Fender Custom Care Registration.
