Fender Custom Shop's 1963 Telecaster Relic is a limited edition guitar made for 2020, and features all the hallmarks of a vintage '63 Tele. Its Relic finish package delivers the look of a well-loved, played-in 1963 Telecaster, with all the dings, dents, and scratches you would expect on an original. However, the guitar's Aged Chartreuse Sparkle finish is easily its most distinguishable feature, with an aged gold aesthetic that perfectly complements the guitar's classic tone, plus herringbone body binding and a matching Aged Chartreuse Sparkle headstock. The 1963 Telecaster Relic features the time-honored single-coil twang of a vintage Telecaster as well, thanks to a pair of hand-wound '63 Tele pickups, delivering unmatched tonal authenticity. The guitar also brings fantastic playability and authentic in-hand aura, with a 9.5" radius fingerboard over a rift sawn maple neck with a '60s Style Oval "C" profile. Plus, it has a lightweight feel, at just under eight pounds, thanks to an Alder body that was specifically sorted for light weight. Includes Fender Custom Shop hardshell case in Black.
