Limited Edition Custom Shop Tele from the 2015 NAMM Show

Direct from the 2015 NAMM show comes a special guitar - the Fender Custom Shop 1959 Telecaster solidbody electric guitar. Not available on Fender's price list, this guitar sports a very special configuration from late 1959. About that time, Fender started using rosewood fretboards on the Tele, transitioning the logo, and changing the dot spacing on the fretboard. This cool axe nails the specs, tone, and feel of the late '50s. And the Journeyman Relic lacquer finish offers a great "played but not abused" look to the guitar. Add the limited-edition Fender Custom Shop 1959 Telecaster to your guitar stash today!

Fender Custom Shop 1959 Telecaster Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Hand-wound pickups give you '50s chime<
  • Quartersawn neck gives you ultra-stability and ultra-playability
  • Journeyman Relic finish adds character to your axe
Hand-wound pickups give you '50s chime

One of the most important features to the authenticity of a vintage-styled Tele is the pickups. With the Custom Shop 1959 Telecaster you get a set of pickups hand-wound to the same spec as the 1958 classics. Though there are hundreds of variations out there, there's truly nothing like the sparkle and chime you hear when playing through genuine vintage Telecaster pickups. Take it from the Sweetwater crew - the Fender Custom Shop 1959 Telecaster has the vintage tone you've been looking for.

Quartersawn neck gives you ultra-stability and ultra-playability

The neck is one of the most important aspects of any instrument, which is why this Fender Custom Shop 1959 Telecaster solidbody electric guitar features a quartersawn maple neck. Besides looking good, the straight grain of quartersawn necks is about 50% more stable than plain-sawn necks, and less likely to warp, twist or shrink. You'll also love the playability and feel of this 1959 Telecaster's contoured heel when you're playing higher up the fretboard. Down low, you'll appreciate the vintage 9.5" radiused rosewood fingerboard that keeps things nice and comfortable for natural, relaxed fretwork.

Journeyman Relic finish adds character to your axe

If you want your axe to look and feel "broke in," but without the vintage vibe, you'll love the Journeyman Relic finish on this Fender Custom Shop 1959 Telecaster solidbody electric guitar. Although it looks as though it has been a well-cared-for, albeit well-loved, member of your guitar collection for years, this Tele nonetheless projects an aura of distinct modernism. Aged, but without the heavy wear-and-tear, this guitar will feel as though you've played it for a lifetime!

Fender Custom Shop 1959 Telecaster Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • A Custom Shop Tele that channels 1959
  • Fender's classic Esquire "C" neck profile serves up outstanding feel
  • Rosewood fingerboard with 9.5" radius and 6105 (medium jumbo) frets for fast playing
  • Broken in, but not beat up Journeyman Relic lacquer finish
  • Hand-wound Custom Shop 1958 Telecaster pickups deliver classic Tele tone
  • Vintage-style hardware is reliable and looks great
  • Hardshell case included

This Fender Custom Shop 1959 Telecaster is guitar player's dream come true!
