Fender Custom Shop

Description

The 1960 Telecaster Custom Heavy Relic brings a worn-in rawness to the refined double-bound classic. Its hand-selected two-piece ash body wears a splendid Heavy Relic lacquer finish with nitro double binding. The rift-sawn maple neck has a ’60-style “oval C” profile, topped by a 9.5"-radius flat-lam rosewood fingerboard with 21 narrow tall frets for perfect bends and chording along the entire length of the neck.

Hand-wound Twisted Tele pickups provide extra output, paired up with a three-way switch and modern Tele wiring. Other features include white “top hat” switch tip, three-ply mint green pickguard, 1960 Tele bridge with threaded steel saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, a bone nut and wing string tree. A deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity are also included.
