Fender Custom Shop 1959 Telecaster Custom Relic – Aged Sherwood Green Metallic

Serial Number: CZ574855
Weight: 6 lbs 14 oz

By the late 1950s, the Telecaster had firmly established its reputation as the premier workhorse guitar, but for the player seeking a guitar with the versatility of a Tele and a more distinct personality, the choices were few and far between. Enter the Telecaster Custom, which debuted in 1959, sporting an elegant double-bound body and alluring rosewood fingerboard – both firsts for the Telecaster. The Vintage Custom 1959 Telecaster Custom boasts the same refined look as the original, along with some rare and compelling features from the Tele’s formative years that we felt modern players and vintage tone hounds alike would appreciate. It comes equipped with hand-wound Texas Special Tele single-coil pickups and a Maple neck for that wide-open Tele tone that can easily handle any playing situation. The neck features a 9.5″ radius, which we found on some rare examples, giving it a unique feel even among vintage-inspired models. It also features narrow tall frets, which are larger than a vintage size and very comfortable to play.

Other features include a NOS flash-coat lacquer, Aged Sherwood Green finish, 2-piece off-center alder body, tinted quater-sawn maple neck and ’59  “D”-shaped neck profile, 21 vintage modified frets, 3-way switch, 1-ply parchment pickguard, bone nut, wing string tree and vintage-style tuning machines.

An elegant take on a timeless classic, this Telecaster combines, form, function and feel with the most important element—authentic Fender sound. Includes a deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
