Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Cunife Telecaster Custom Relic – Faded Aged Chocolate 3 Tone Sunburst

Serial Number: CZ563846

Developed by Seth Lover, who joined Fender in 1971, the “cunife” pickup features a two-coil humbucking design that uses 12 cunife screws connected on the bottom by a steel plate. Cunife is an alloy named for its three constituent metals—copper (Cu), nickel (Ni) and iron (Fe)—and in instrument pickups it produces a distinctive “hi fidelity” sound with rich bass and clear treble, and they never lose their attack or definition when pushed. We used samples of the original magnets to develop these pickups over a two-year period, and we’ve brought the material back exactly as it was 40 years ago.

The guitar features a two-piece select ash body, one-piece tinted quarter sawn maple neck with 60 style oval “C” back-shape, and 9.5”-radius fingerboard with 21 narrow tall frets. Hand-wound Texas Special (bridge) and wide-range cunife (neck) pickups feature three-way switching and Dual Stack HS Tele wiring. Additional features include a 3-ply mint green pickguard, vintage-style tuners, bone nut. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
