The Fender Custom 1961 Telecaster flawlessly captures the raw and rebellious spirit of the '60s. Sporting a gorgeous Relic finish treatment, this guitar looks like a genuine '60s Tele that's seen its fair share of stage time. Plus, its Aged Lake Placid Blue finish is jaw-droppingly gorgeous - seriously, once you uncase this beauty, you'll never want to put it back. Oh, and its hand-wound pickups? They deliver a bright, twangin' tone so sweet you'll be taken right back to the golden era of rock 'n' roll.
Starting with a 2-piece alder body, the Fender Custom 1961 Telecaster delivers a rich, snappy tone with exceptional sustain. Its sound is further enhanced by its hand-wound Custom Shop pickups. With a Twisted Tele single-coil in the neck position and an OBG pickup in the bridge, this guitar can dish out anything from a dark, warm howl to a hot, biting snarl. And thanks to its Grease Bucket tone circuit, players can roll off the high-end without muddying their signal.

They'll also appreciate its smooth AAA rosewood fingerboard, 21 narrow-tall frets, and premium hardware, all of which contribute to its incredible playability and charming vintage feel.
