Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater Mod Squad '62 Telecaster Custom Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • You can't beat this pickup configuration
  • Relic finish and hardware for that aged look
  • Fender Custom Shop precision and quality
You can't beat this pickup configuration

For a perfect combination of classic Tele tone and modern output, Fender outfitted the Sweetwater Mod Squad '62 Telecaster Custom with a Seymour Duncan SH-1 '59 humbucker in the neck position and a Fender Custom Shop Broadcaster in the bridge position. You get all of the twang and high end sparkle the Tele has become famous for since it first appeared in 1951, plus the robust signal strength you need for different styles of music. The controls of the Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater Mod Squad '62 Telecaster Custom feature two volume controls and a single tone control that doubles as a coil-tap switch. Now you can blend your pickups to your specific taste to create tones never before available on a Tele.

Relic finish and hardware for that aged look

As you can imagine, a true 1962 Tele would show signs of wear and tear, and the Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater Mod Squad '62 Telecaster Custom is finished to represent those years of playing. The heavily worn finish on the body and neck, and the aged and slightly rusty hardware will make you wonder if it really isn't a true vintage guitar.

Fender Custom Shop precision and quality

Every detail on the Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater Mod Squad '62 Telecaster Custom reminds you of the historic lineage of the Telecaster, from the lacquer finish to the vintage hardware. But this Fender Custom Shop Tele isn't just built for looks - the neck of the Mod Squad '62 Telecaster Custom is made from maple for strength and maximum vibration, and the ash for the body was hand-selected for maximum quality.

Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater Mod Squad '62 Telecaster Custom Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Killer Vintage looks with modern hardware
  • Flexible guitar with classic single-coil and humbucking tones
  • Dual volume controls let you blend your pickups to create the perfect tones
  • Fender Custom Shop Broadcaster single-coil at the bridge and a Seymour Duncan '59 humbucker at the neck
  • Ash body with nitrocellulose lacquer finish
