A Sweetwater Special Closet Classic '52 Tele!The Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater Special '52 Telecaster delivers real-deal visuals in a highly playable modern instrument. The early '50s Tele is the godfather of the solidbody electric guitar, and the Sweetwater Special '52 Telecaster gives you the twang, bite, and vibe of the original - along with modern playability. This axe may look 60 years old, but it sports a supremely comfy modern 9.5" radius and 6105 frets on its chunky U-shaped neck. Topped off with superb-sounding single-coil Tele pickups, the Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater Special '52 Telecaster is a music time machine!
Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater Special '52 Telecaster Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
The Closet Classic treatment = real deal visuals
Fender Custom's Closet Classic treatment creates an instrument that's a spittin' image of the original. Without sneaking a look at the neck heel stamps, you'd be hard-pressed to distinguish the Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater Special '52 Telecaster from the real deal! A period-correct nitrocellulose lacquer finish gives the guitar a timeless, classic look, while the Closet Classic process gives you a guitar that looks like it's been tucked safely away in your closet, gently aging in its case for 60-plus years. Nitro finishes - standard back in the '50s and '60s - are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to "breathe." Nitro finishes not only look vintage-y wonderful; they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities.
Period-correct Tele twang
The Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater Special '52 Telecaster is loaded with a pair of single-coil pickups that deliver all the legendary Tele bite, twang, and chunk of an original early-'50s Tele. So if authentic '50 Tele sound is your thing - the Sweetwater Special '52 Telecaster is the cost-effective way to get it.
It's all about playing feel
The Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater Special '52 Telecaster looks totally vintage, and it plays like butter. If you savor the feel of a played-in guitar with perfect fretwork and with spot-on intonation, we've got your axe right here! The Sweetwater Special '52 Telecaster sports 6105 medium jumbo frets and a 9.5" radius so you can shred and bend up high without fear of fretting out. It's the best of old and new!
