Fender Custom Shop

Description

A Bigsby vibrato tailpiece on a Telecaster is one of those classic combinations, and this Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition '50s Vibra Tele is a great example of why. The classic twang of a Tele bridge pickup and a B5 tailpiece create a shimmer that's second-to-none. On this instrument, that's paired with a Seymour Duncan Seth Lover humbucker in the neck for meaty tones that back off nicely into warmth and mellowness with a touch of the volume and tone knobs. The Custom Shop's Heavy Relic finish treatment gives the guitar the appeal of a well-loved, widely traveled companion. This Limited Edition instrument ships with a Certificate of Authenticity and a deluxe hard case.
