The '60s Telecaster Heavy Relic features an alder body with an exciting blue sparkle thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish that has been given the Fender Custom Shop "Heavy Relic" treatment. The neck features a dark Indian rosewood fingerboard with an oval '60s "C" neck shape and a 9.5"-radius fingerboard with 21 frets. Two vintage Fender Telecaster single-coil alnico pickups give you all the great Telecaster sounds that pickers have known and loved for years. Other vintage appointments of the 1960 Fender Custom Telecaster guitar include a Fender/Gotoh vintage style tuning machines, original vintage-style Tele bridge with 3 steel saddles, 3-ply white/black/white pickguard, knurled chrome knobs, and "top hat" switch tip. The 1960s Fender Telecaster comes with a hardshell guitar case, strap, cable, and certificate of authenticity.
The Fender Custom Shop "Heavy Relic" treatment creates guitars that are super worn-in, like your favorite pair of jeans. They show the natural wear and tear from years of heavy use ” nicks, scratches, worn finish, rusty hardware and aged plastic parts.
Guitars from the Fender Time Machine series pay homage to specific years of some of Fender's classic designs. All are built to exacting specifications of their respective vintages, including body contours and radii, neck shape, fingerboard radius, pickups, and electronics. Original materials, tooling and production techniques are employed wherever possible to maintain the integrity of these Fender guitars.
