Everything You Want a Tele to Be!
Once you pick up this Fender Custom Shop 2014 Proto Telecaster, you'll never even consider going back to an off-the-shelf model. This hand-made beauty starts off with a harmonically rich and resonant select ash body and goes off the deep end from there. Unlike the majority of Teles we see every day at Sweetwater, this Custom Shop Proto Tele comes outfitted with an uncommonly playable 10/'56 large V shaped AAA birdseye maple neck with a maple fingerboard. Top it off with a pair of Josefina Red Hot Tele pickups, and this Proto Telecaster is ready to take you on a wild ride.Fender Custom Shop Proto Telecaster Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
