The Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Golden 1951 Heavy Relic Telecaster with Gold Hardware harkens back to a momentous period of Fender innovation. The year 1951 was a transitional year for the first commercially available solidbody electric "Spanish" guitar, when Fender changed the name of the instrument from Broadcaster to the historic Telecaster namesake.
For the very first time, Fender honors this highly limited model, recreating the late '51 Tele for vintage lovers everywhere. With premium features, custom colors and a meticulous relic treatment, each one is a true masterpiece, a celebration of the first true "custom-build" instruments and a nod to a remarkable era of exuberant creativity.
Features include a distinctive single-ply gold anadized pickguard, a '51 "U" shaped maple neck with modern 9.5" radius fingerboard and tall 6105 frets. A set of '51 Nocaster pickups recreates the shimmer and twang of early Tele models, and a heavy relic treatment has been dutifully applied to the body and neck, replicating the genuine wear and tear of a true vintage instrument. The guitar is also appointed with gold hardware, silver Tele headstock decal and watermark in honor of this significant model year.
