Masterbuilt by one of the world's top luthiers, Yuriy Shishkov

Considered one of the last true renaissance guitar builders, Yuriy Shishkov has collaborated with artists like Jimmy Page and Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin, Paul Stanley of KISS, and Dimebag Darrell of Pantera. Yuriy even makes many of his own woodworking tools so he can achieve exactly the results he desires. But the Featherlight Telecaster wasn't just built by Yuriy Shishkov - he designed it from the ground up with the goal of creating the lightest-weight Telecaster ever.

Designed to be as lightweight-yet-resonant as possible

Yuriy Shishkov chose ultra-lightweight paulownia and airplane-grade spruce to make the Featherlight Telecaster so light and comfortable to play. Paulownia is a rapidly-renewable wood that's very lightweight, but interestingly also has very resonant and musical qualities. As far as airplane-grade spruce, that means the spruce has been chosen, cut, and dried in a particular way to maximize strength and minimize twisting or warping. So you get a lightweight neck that enhances your note attack and definition, and also will remain straight and true as long as you own this masterpiece.

Fender Custom Shop Featherlight Telecaster Masterbuilt by Yuriy Shishkov Features:
  • Amazingly lightweight Telecaster solidbody electric guitar, built by master luthier Yuriy Shishkov
  • Paulownia body and airplane-grade spruce neck are very lightweight, but also very resonant
  • Extremely vibrant tone, with a fast note attack and excellent definition
  • '60s "C"-shape neck profile plays smooth, with a 7.25" radius on the rosewood fretboard
  • Master Design single-coil pickups give you epic tones you won't find on any other Telecaster
  • Closet Classic finish creates a subtly-aged look
