Fender Custom Shop's 1965 Telecaster Relic is a faithful recreation of a 1965 Telecaster's looks, feel, and sound. Its Relic job comprises small dings, dents, and chips in the guitar, giving it an authentically aged look to go along with a double-bound body and Aged Black finish. Its tinted riftsawn maple neck bears an authentic '60s-style oval "C" shape, as well as an exceptionally comfortable compound 7.5" to 9.5" radius rosewood fingerboard. So, whether you're soloing or playing chords, your fretting hand is treated to the utmost comfort. Plus, the 1965 Telecaster Custom Relic's hand-wound '64 single-coils deliver vintage Tele twang with modern wiring and a Greasebucket tone control for smooth highs. With its period correct hardware and specs, modern upgrades, and striking aesthetic, the 1965 Telecaster Custom Relic is yet another remarkable Fender Custom Shop guitar.
