Fender Custom Shop Closet Classic Rosewood Telecaster Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:

Rosewood neck and rounded laminated fingerboard pour on the sustain
Twisted Tele pickups dish out extra-hot and punchy single-coil tone
An all-rosewood Tele that looks astounding and plays like a kid in the rain
Over the years, Fender has produced only a select few all-rosewood Teles like this 2013 Closet Classic Rosewood Telecaster, the most noted of which ended up in the hands of George Harrison (it's featured on Let It Be). Words alone can't quite express the satisfying sweetness of the Closet Classic Rosewood Telecaster's sound, which blossoms with a dark, electrifying resonance that's balanced with ample high-end sparkle and overflowing with sustain. Top it off with understated appointments and contrasting white binding, and the Closet Classic Rosewood Telecaster's looks are almost as impressive as its tone.

Rosewood neck and rounded laminated fingerboard pour on the sustain

The Closet Classic Rosewood Telecaster gives you the feel and performance of Fender's rounded laminated fingerboard, a fretboard design that came about in 1962 to address the problem that caused earlier slab fretboards from separated from the neck. The increased surface contact between this new contoured fretboard and the neck had the unexpected side effect of upping the Tele's sustain dramatically. Add that to the phenomenal sustain characteristics the Closet Classic Rosewood Telecaster's early-'60s oval-C solid-rosewood neck, and you'll experience playing dynamics like nothing you've heard before.

Twisted Tele pickups dish out extra-hot and punchy single-coil tone

The first thing you'll notice after plugging in the Fender Custom Shop Closet Classic Rosewood Telecaster is that it packs way more punch than a standard Telecaster. That's because they loaded it with a pair of Custom Shop Twisted Tele pickups. These unique Tele pickups borrow the taller-than-usual Alnico V magnets from Fender's Jazz Bass pickups, which provide the added bobbin space for thicker gauge wire. This gives the Closet Classic Rosewood Telecaster a hotter, brighter, and punchier sound than you'll typically get from a Tele. And if you want to roll off some of those highs (without killing your gain) just kick in the Closet Classic Rosewood Telecaster's Greasebucket tone circuit.
