ah, the tele custom...
with its distinctive double-bound body, the custom found a place in the hearts of tele lovers seeking a more sophisticated look. the fender custom shop 1961 relic telecaster custom does honor to the original, and incorporates a few most-requested specs and the latest custom shop master builder-designed twisted tele pickup set. the results - sonically and visually - will steal your breath away.

custom shop twisted tele pickup set
the fender custom shop 1961 relic telecaster custom is fitted with a custom shop twisted tele pickup set, giving you traditional tele twang, with higher, modern single-coil output. versus the original tele neck pickup, the twisted tele neck pup has been re-engineered to provide a brighter sound that approaches the spank 'n' sparkle you get from a strat. this is a welcome enhancement for many tele fans (including many of us tele fanatics here at sweetwater).

maple neck with dark indian rosewood fingerboard
leo fender was a radio technician - not a luthier - so goes the "excuse" for why his first round of guitars sported maple necks without separate fingerboards. at the beginning of the tumultuous '60s, fender started offering rosewood fingerboards on its instruments. much has been said about the relative sonic merits of maple vs. rosewood, however, although rosewood-capped necks are undeniably "warmer" sounding, mr. fender's reasoning - according to legend - behind the move to rosewood, was simply that he didn't like the visible "wear" on the maple boards. players of all genres immediately lined up on both sides of the debate - which rages on. the fender custom shop 1961 relic telecaster custom - in deference to period correctness - sports a particularly lovely (and highly playable) 9.5" radius dark indian rosewood fingerboard fitted with 6105 medium jumbo frets.
