Fender Custom Shop's 1952 Telecaster NOS is a faithful recreation of a first-year vintage Fender Telecaster. This is a prime example of a "Blackguard" Tele, with all the accompaniments you've come to expect: a 1-ply black pickguard, ash body finished in Nocaster Blonde, and a thick neck profile. If you're a fan of a chunky, yet playable in-hand feel, then this guitar's 10/56 "V" shaped profile will put you right at home. Pickups-wise, this Tele is outfitted with a pair of Hand-Wound '51 Nocaster single-coils, along with Fat '50s Tele wiring and 3-way switching. This combination of electronics gives it exceptional tonal versatility while also being one of the fattest-sounding Fenders you've heard.
