  • Description

    This Master Built '62 Relic Tele from the Fender Custom Shop is brimming with vintage Fender tone, feel and vibe. Painstakingly crafted in the hands of acclaimed Fender Custom Shop Master Builder Greg Fessler, this '62 Tele showcases the Custom Shop's impeccable attention to detail and superior craftsmanship while paying homage Fender's rich, long-standing history.

    This '62 Telecaster features a two-piece ash body that sports a relic'd HLE Gold nitro lacquer finish to give this guitar a well-played, well-loved vintage look. It's got tons of mojo with plenty of finish checking and wear-and-tear that you'd typically only find on a 50+-year-old guitar that's spent many a night being worked to its limits in bars and clubs.

    The quartersawn maple neck has the perfect amount of chunk with its large "C" profile, and the worn nitro lacquer back finish gives it a nice broken-in feel. The hand-selected AAA-grade dark rosewood 'board combines the very best of the old and the new. The fretboard boasts Fender's classic "round-lam" design that harkens back to the early '60s to ensure a smooth playability while 6105 frets and a contemporary 9.5" fingerboard radius give it more of a modern feel. Catering to its vintage appeal, the neck of this Master Built '62 Telecaster Relic features a '60s-style truss rod and a classic Tele headstock with a vintage Fender decal.

    This '62 Tele gives you that legendary vintage Tele tone, sparkle and twang thanks to a hand-wound '63 Tele neck pickup and a '63 Tele pickup in the bridge. The pickups are wired through a Master Volume control, a Master Tone control and a classic 3-way pickup selector. Vintage-accurate relic'd hardware includes a set of vintage-style tuning machines along with a period-correct vintage-style strings-through-body Tele 3-saddle bridge. Comes complete with a hardshell case, a Certificate of Authenticity, a tool kit, a guitar strap and a Fender Custom Shop instrument cable.
