There’s nothing like a great Tele. Likewise, there’s nothing like the incredible tone you can get from a Filter’tron pickup. And, if each of those is great, just imagine how good it would be to combine them together! Which brings us to our Guitar of the Day, the Fender Custom Shop Limited Relic Three Pickup La Cabronita.
Featuring a trio of TV Jones Filter’tron humbuckers routed through a master volume control, with a 3-position selector for the neck and bridge pickups and a blend control for mixing in the middle pickup, this guitar is capable of an incredible range of tones, from twang to crunch to sparkle to scream. A lightweight alder body provides the classic Tele foundation, while the one-piece large C-shaped maple neck/fingerboard adds resonance, sustain, and clarity. Both the neck and body are finished with nitrocellulose lacquer for minimal damping of vibration. A chromed brass bridge plate with stainless steel saddles contributes to the punchy, bright sound.
If you’re looking for a Tele that can take you outside the box, this is the one!
