Fender's Custom Shop Tomatillo Telecaster is perfect for players seeking a stellar vintage-inspired Tele with a sweet, dynamic tone.
The first thing you'll notice when you strum this guitar is its surprisingly resonant sound, provided by its two-piece select ash body. Its one-piece rift-sawn maple neck features a '57-style "soft V" profile, a vintage compound radius fingerboard, and 21 narrow tall frets, all of which make for an impeccable playing experience. Classic guitar lovers will appreciate this Tele's Journeyman Relic treatment, which gives it the look and feel of a genuinely loved vintage axe.
Powering this beauty is a pair of underwound Tomatillo Tele pickups with Alnico 2 magnets that deliver a delightfully flavorful tone. Wired up to '51 Modified Nocaster wiring and a blender pot instead of a master tone, these pickups will take you right back to the golden era of Fender. A Fat '50s control assembly ships in the case for players who prefer that sound and style.
Fully spec'd out with a single-ply parchment pickguard, a reverse-angle Nocaster bridge with compensated RSD brass saddles, and vintage-style tuning machines, the Custom Shop Tomatillo Telecaster is excellent for folks seeking a top-notch old-school guitar.
