Fender Custom Shop 1960 Telecaster Custom Relic Solidbody Electric at a Glance:
  • Alder body and premium pickups for sonic bliss
  • Quartersawn maple neck for stability
  • Relic finish and hardware for vintage vibe
Alder body and premium pickups for sonic bliss

This is a really great looking Telecaster thanks to the relic'd, double-bound premium alder body. To enhance the look and allow the body to more freely resonate, Fender uses a special "thin" nitrocellulose lacquer finish on this guitar. Hot-rodded with a Seymour Duncan '59 humbucker in the neck position, the Fender Custom Shop 1960 Telecaster Custom Relic has all the sparkle and spank with a NoCaster single-coil in the bridge and the punch and fullness of a humbucker at the neck.

Quartersawn maple neck for stability

The neck is one of the most important aspects of any instrument, which is why the Fender Custom Shop 1960 Telecaster Custom Relic features a quartersawn maple neck. Besides looking good, the straight grain of quartersawn necks is about 50% more stable than plain-sawn necks, and less likely to warp, twist or shrink. You'll also love the playability and feel of the 1960 Telecaster Custom Relic's contoured heel when you're playing higher up the fretboard. Down low, your fretting hand will appreciate the 9.5" radius that keeps things nice and comfortable for natural, relaxed arpeggio work.

Relic finish and hardware for vintage vibe

As you can imagine, a true 1960 Telecaster would show signs of wear and tear, and the Fender Custom Shop 1960 Telecaster Custom Relic is finished to represent those years of playing. The worn finish on the body and neck, and the aged and slightly rusty hardware will make you wonder if it really isn't a true vintage guitar. The NoCaster single-coil and Seymour Duncan '59 humbucker pickups will give you vintage tones by the ton. The Fender Custom Shop 1960 Telecaster Custom Relic is sure to please even the pickiest of guitar lovers.

Fender Custom Shop 1960 Telecaster Custom Relic Solidbody Electric Features:
  • Telecaster tone with the punch of a humbucker
  • Relic looks and feel one a double-bound alder body
  • Quartersawn maple neck with Large-C shape for unrivaled stability and tone
  • Vibe, feel, and tone of a well-loved Telecaster
The Fender Custom Shop 1960 Telecaster Custom Relic gives you amazing playability and a cool vintage vibe.
