Sweet '60s Heavy Relic Tele!
The Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater "Sweet '60s" '63 Telecaster is a killer take on the classic 1963 Tele. The "battered Tele" is arguably the gold standard in solidbody electric guitar mojo; the '63 Heavy Relic gives you the twang, bite, and vibe of the original - without costly visits to your luthier. This axe may look a half-century old, but it sports a supremely playable modern 9.5" radius and 6105 frets on its chunky mid-'60s C-shaped neck. Topped off with superb-sounding custom shop pickups and custom wiring, the Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater "Sweet '60s" '63 Telecaster is a music time machine par excellence.Fender Custom Shop Sweetwater "Sweet '60s" '63 Telecaster at a Glance:
- The Heavy Relic treatment creates a unique look
- Custom Shop pickups serve up period-correct Tele twang
- Exceptional playability
Fender Custom Shop's Relic treatment creates instruments that are spittin' images of the originals. Without sneaking a look at the neck heel stamps, you'd be hard-pressed to distinguish the Sweetwater "Sweet '60s" '63 Telecaster from the real deal! A period-correct nitrocellulose lacquer finish gives the guitar a timeless, classic look, while the relic process gives you a guitar that looks like it's seen its share of hard touring. Nitro finishes - standard back in the '60s - are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to "breathe." Nitro finishes not only look vintage-y wonderful; they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities.Custom Shop pickups serve up period-correct Tele twang
