NAMM Show Special

Imagine a solidbody electric guitar with all the comfort of a great broken-in vintage instrument, but with modern appointments aimed at giving you the best possible playing experience. That's what you're going to get with the Fender Custom shop '50s Journeyman Relic Telecaster. Sweetwater has been fans of the Fender Custom Shop for a while. And since the '50s Journeyman offers features such as a one-piece quartersawn-maple neck with 1957 soft-v neck profile, and a 9.5" radius, it looks like we'll be fans for a long time to come.

Fender Custom Shop '50s Telecaster Journeyman Relic Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Vintage correct construction
  • Modern playability
  • Journeyman relic'ing
Vintage correct construction

There aren't many guitar tones as sought after as a good vintage Tele. The Fender Custom shop '50s Journeyman Relic Tele gives you so many of those to-die-for features, in a modern instrument that is significantly more affordable than a vintage prize. Like with the '50s Journeyman's ancestors, your hand will immediately be comfortable around the one-piece quartersawn-maple neck, contoured into a '57 soft-V profile. And the Custom Shop Twisted Tele and Broadcaster pickups ensure you'll easily get the twang old Teles are famous for.

Modern playability

The '50s Journeyman Tele brings you into the present with updates based around bringing you today's best in playability. You get a modern 9.5" fretboard radius, which is a great medium for you to get both chording comfort, and string-bending freedom. And you won't have to fight with barely-there frets. The 6105 fretwire offers you enough clearance from the fretboard for all the unobstructed string control you need. But it's still low enough to be extremely comfortable.

Journeyman relic'ing

Though a relic'd guitar finish is almost as common these days as a flawless factory finish it the was Fender Custom Shop that pioneered the process and know it better than anyone. Fender offers different levels of relicing. One of the newer levels is the Journeyman, found on Fender Custom Shop's '50s Journeyman Relic Tele. You get a look and feel that's used but not abused. Imagine a loved guitar that's been well taken care of, but also definitely been played. Totally broken in, but holds up like a brand new electric guitar.

Fender Custom Shop '50s Telecaster Journeyman Relic Electric Guitar Features:
  • Vintage-style Telecaster with modern appointments for great playability
  • Vintage-correct custom '57 soft-v neck profile
  • Lightweight Ash body offers maximum resonance
  • Effortless playability with a 9.5" fretboard radius
  • Larger 6105 fretwire
  • Authentic Fender tone with Custom Shop pickups
  • 1-piece quartersawn-maple neck
  • Hardshell case included

The Fender CS '50s Journeyman Relic Tele gives you the best of all worlds!
