Sweet '60s Heavy Relic Tele!The Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater "Sweet '60s" '63 Telecaster is a killer take on the classic 1963 Tele. The "battered Tele" is arguably the gold standard in solidbody electric guitar mojo; the '63 Heavy Relic gives you the twang, bite, and vibe of the original - without costly visits to your luthier. This axe may look a half-century old, but it sports a supremely playable modern 9.5" radius and 6105 frets on its chunky mid-'60s C-shaped neck. Topped off with superb-sounding custom shop pickups and custom wiring, the Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater "Sweet '60s" '63 Telecaster is a music time machine par excellence.
Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater "Sweet '60s" '63 Telecaster at a Glance:
The Heavy Relic treatment creates a unique look
Fender Custom Shop's Relic treatment creates instruments that are spittin' images of the originals. Without sneaking a look at the neck heel stamps, you'd be hard-pressed to distinguish the Sweetwater "Sweet '60s" '63 Telecaster from the real deal! A period-correct nitrocellulose lacquer finish gives the guitar a timeless, classic look, while the relic process gives you a guitar that looks like it's seen its share of hard touring. Nitro finishes - standard back in the '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.
Custom Shop pickups serve up period-correct Tele twang
The Fender Custom Shop's Sweetwater "Sweet '60s" '63 Telecaster is loaded with a pair of Fender Custom Shop single-coil pickups that deliver all the legendary Tele chunk, twang, and bite of an original mid-''60s Tele. So if an authentic '60s Tele sound is your thing, the Sweetwater "Sweet '60s" '63 Telecaster is the cost-effective way to get it.
It's all about playing feel
The Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater "Sweet '60s" '63 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 "Sweet '60s" '63 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!
