A Tele Lover's Dream

The Fender Custom Shop 2013 Custom Deluxe Telecaster is a Tele lover's dream. What's on your Tele wish list? This 2013 Custom Deluxe Tele gives you a lightweight ash body with a delectable AAA flame maple bent top, a satisfyingly chunky 1-piece AAA flame maple neck/fingerboard with a zippy 9.5" radius and medium jumbo frets, punchy Twisted Tele neck and bridge pickups, modern 3-way switching, a Custom Telecaster bridge, and Sperzel tuning machines. You get all the Tele twang and easy playability you've dreamed about in the Fender Custom Shop 2013 Custom Deluxe Telecaster.

Fender Custom Shop 2013 Custom Deluxe Telecaster at a Glance:

  • Custom Shop Twisted Tele pickup set
  • 1-piece AA flame maple neck
Hand-selected ash body with AAA quilted maple top

With its lightweight ash body and AAA flame maple bent top, the Fender Custom Shop 2013 Custom Deluxe Telecaster exudes sex appeal. These tonewoods also give you warmth, sustain, and classic Tele bite, especially from the Twisted Tele bridge pickup.

Custom Shop Twisted Tele pickup set

The Fender Custom Shop 2013 Custom Deluxe Telecaster is fitted with a Custom Shop Twisted Tele pickup set, giving you traditional Tele twang with higher, modern single-coil output. Versus the original Tele neck pickup, the Twisted Tele neck pickup has been reengineered to provide a brighter sound that approaches the spank 'n' sparkle you get from a Strat. This is a welcome enhancement for many Tele fans (including many of us Tele fanatics here at Sweetwater).

1-piece AA flame maple neck

Leo Fender was a radio technician not a luthier, so goes the "excuse" for why his first round of guitars sported maple necks without separate fingerboards. Aside from imparting "signature" looks to early Fenders, this neck construction gave '50s Teles and Strats a unique tonal signature. Maple, as we know, is a very dense tonewood that is great for snappy attack and sustain. The characteristically sharp ictus of notes fretted on such necks are a significant part of the sonic vibe of vintage Fenders. The Fender Custom Shop 2013 Custom Deluxe Telecaster serves up this delicious vibe in spades.

Fender Custom Shop 2013 Custom Deluxe Telecaster Features:
  • A superb Custom Shop Tele for the true Tele lover
  • Hand-selected ash body with access heel and AAA flame maple bent top
  • 1-piece AAA flame maple neck/fingerboard with a mid-'60s oval "C" back shape
  • Sperzel tuners with pearl button tuners

Bring your Tele dreams to life with the Fender Custom Shop 2013 Custom Deluxe Telecaster!
