Like a Well-loved Original '50s Tele
Get your hands on the Fender Custom Shop Limited '50s Telecaster, and you'll swear you're playing a well-maintained early-'50s Telecaster. The Tele is one of the most-played and most-recorded solidbody electric guitars ever made, and the Limited '50s Telecaster delivers everything that makes the Tele legendary: a huge sonic range, eminent playability, and the feeling of guitar royalty under your fingers. The Journeyman Relic finish makes it feel like a vintage original, while the Custom Shop single-coil pickups and modern wiring deliver more aggressive tone than a vintage original ever did. If you're looking for "the" Tele to complete your collection, you've found it in the Fender Custom Shop Limited '50s Telecaster.
Feels like a great vintage treasure
As soon as you hold the Fender Custom Shop Limited '50s Telecaster, your hands will tell you they're wrapped around a vintage instrument from the early days of the electric guitar. The ash body has the same iconic shape and feel that launched a revolution in 1951. The guitar's relic'd nitrocellulose finish looks just like an original. And the quartersawn maple neck with '57-style "Soft V" profile feels like it's been well-played for a lifetime.
Custom Shop Fender electronics
The engine that makes the Limited '50s Telecaster run is its pair of Fender Custom Shop hand-wound single-coil pickups. The neck pickup is Fender's popular Twisted Tele design, while the bridge pickup is a Broadcaster that delivers the sounds of the original guitars.
Greasebucket tone circuit = no more mud
Have you noticed how your note definition can suffer when you roll your tone knob back? The Greasebucket tone circuit in the American Special Series Stratocaster lets you roll off highs without affecting lower frequencies. That means you can play mellow, subdued notes without your tone getting muddy and indistinct. Sweetwater knows many players never touch their tone control — maybe that's because they don't have the Greasebucket tone circuit.
