A Tele Lover's Dream

The Fender Custom Shop 2012 Custom Deluxe Telecaster is a Tele lover's dream. What's on your Tele wish list? This 2012 Custom Deluxe Tele gives you a lightweight ash body with a delectable AAA quilted maple top, a satisfyingly chunky AA flame maple neck / rosewood fingerboard with a zippy 9.5" radius and plump 6105 frets, punchy Twisted Tele neck and bridge pickups, modern 3-way switching, a Greasebucket tone control circuit, a Custom Classic bridge, and staggered machine heads. You get all the Tele twang and easy playability you've dreamed about in the Fender Custom Shop 2012 Custom Deluxe Telecaster.

Fender Custom Shop 2012 Custom Deluxe Telecaster at a Glance:

  • 1-piece AA flame maple neck
Hand-selected ash body with AAA quilted maple top

With its lightweight ash body and AAA quilted maple top, the Fender Custom Shop 2012 Custom Deluxe Telecaster exudes sex appeal. These tone woods also give you warmth, sustain - and classic Tele bite, especially from the bridge pickup.

Custom Shop Twisted Tele pickup set

The Fender Custom Shop 2012 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 pup has been re-engineered 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).

AA flame maple neck with dark Indian rosewood fingerboard

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. At the beginning of the tumultuous '60s, Fender started offering rosewood fingerboards on its instruments. Much has been said about the relative sonic merits of maple vs. rosewood, however, although rosewood-capped necks are undeniably "warmer" sounding, Mr. Fender's reasoning - according to legend - behind the move to rosewood, was simply that he didn't like the visible "wear" on the maple boards. Players of all genres immediately lined up on both sides of the debate - which rages on. The Fender Custom Shop 2012 Custom Deluxe Telecaster, happily, is available in both flavors. You choose.

Fender Custom Shop 2012 Custom Deluxe Telecaster Features:
  • A superb Custom Shop Tele for the true Tele lover
