Immerse yourself in the Fender Custom Shop Tomatillo Telecaster Custom - a vintage-inspired masterpiece with a sweet, dynamic tone. Featuring a Bleached 3-Color Sunburst finish and a twangin' pair of Tomatillo Tele pickups, this guitar looks, sounds, and plays like a well-gigged golden-era Fender.
The first thing you'll notice when you strum the Tomatillo Telecaster Custom is its surprisingly resonant sound, provided by its two-piece select ash body. But that isn't all this beast has to offer - its '57 Soft "V" shaped AA flame maple neck has an incredible '50s feel, while its vintage compound radius fingerboard makes for easy riffing from the first fret to the last. Guitarists will also appreciate its Relic treatment, which gives it the look and feel of a battle-worn Fender with plenty of mileage behind it.
Driving this Custom Shop Fender is a pair of hand-wound Tomatillo Tele pickups renowned for their highly dynamic and musical sound. Hooked up to '51 Modified Nocaster wiring, these pickups pump out a bright, twangy sound that'll take you right back to Fender's early years. Plus, the reverse bridge pickup gives the bass strings a tighter response while bestowing a fuller, more rounded sound to the treble side.
Decked out with vintage-style tuning machines and parchment binding, the Fender Custom Shop Tomatillo Telecaster Custom is excellent for musicians seeking a top-notch guitar with a killer old-school vibe.
