available for immediate delivery


Fender Custom Shop's 1959 Journeyman Relic Closet Classic Telecaster is a masterwork of guitar-building. It has a tasteful relic job and top-notch construction thanks to Fender Custom Shop’s stunning attention to detail, making it one of the finest Teles they’ve produced. The 1959 Journeyman Relic Closet Classic Tele features a AAA rosewood neck and a AA Flame quartersawn maple neck for the absolute best in-hand feel for fretting notes. Its neck also sports a ‘60s Oval “C” shaped neck and a 9.5” fingerboard radius, which will make any player feel right at home. The guitar’s set of handwound ’58 Tele single-coil pickups produce the vintage twang that made the Telecaster a household name, transporting players back to the era of Fender’s early roots. This Telecaster has also received a Closet Classic relic package, so it gets only a light amount of cosmetic wear, such as slightly discolored hardware/plastic, and minor surface scratches, leaving you to write your own story with it. Plus, it weighs in at just under seven and a half pounds! If you love vintage-style ash-bodied Telecasters, then Fender Custom Shop’s 1959 Journeyman Relic Closet Classic Telecaster is the perfect choice.
