Leo Fender wasn't a guitar player. In fact, he got his start repairing radios. So he had no idea that guitars weren't supposed to have maple necks. In time, those blond maple necks and fingerboards became a Fender trademark, though the company eventually offered rosewood fingerboards on most of its models. The Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition 1959 Heavy Relic Telecaster has a maple neck with a soft '57 "V" profile making it a fast playing neck with a little extra bite. The 9.5" radius and medium jumbo frets give the 1959 Heavy Relic Tele great feel and vibe.Custom Shop pickups give you big Tele tone
The original Tele pickups had more twang than any "normal" guitar, thanks to the single coil pickups in the bridge and neck positions. The Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition 1959 Heavy Relic Telecaster sports a Twisted Tele rhythm pickup and a Nocaster bridge pickup. On top of the custom pickups, the 1959 Heavy Relic Tele is wired with a special 4-position blade switch. This custom configuration gives you tonal options ranging from classic Tele to parallel and series two pickup combinations for extra fat tones with a punch.Relic finish and hardware for that aged look
