The NAMM Special '55 Telecaster brings authentic Tele specs, a tasteful relic job, and an Antique White Blonde together in an enticing Fender Custom Shop package. The relic job on this guitar gives it all the nicks, dings, and scratches you'd expect from a fifties original, but with the top-notch playability of a brand new Fender. This guitar has a fantastic set of single-coil pickups that really do a great job of dishing out a classic Telecaster twang. In the neck and bridge you have a Handwound 55/56 Telecaster Single-Coil, with Modern Tele wiring and a Greasebucket tone control. Just a few of the authentic specs on this guitar include a 55-57 3-saddle bridge, Vintage-Style tuners, and a 52 Tele Parchment pickguard. One of the best things about this Tele, however, is its 1954 "U" shaped neck. If you like a substantial in-hand feel for your fretting hand, then this is the Tele for you. There are many reasons to love this Telecaster, and we know that you'll agree once you strum your first notes with it.
