Fender Custom Shop LTD Heavy Relic 60s H/S Tele - Candy Apple Over Paisley / Rosewood
This limited edition Fender Custom Shop Tele is a Heavy Relic 60s model with a Candy Apple Red over Pink Paisley finish and loaded with a humbucker / single coil pickup configuration.
Delivering a look as unique as it sounds, the Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Heavy Relic ‘60s H/S Tele is for the player that wants to stand out from the crowd.
Reminiscent of Fender’s ‘overpainted’ guitars of the late ‘60s, whereby custom colours were applied right over existing finishes, this Limited Edition Tele reveals its secret with the help of its Heavy Relic finish. The rich Candy Apple Red top coat has been carefully and expertly aged and worn to reveal a vibrant Pink Paisley underneath. This, along with the guitar’s aged parts give the impression and feel of a guitar that has seen a lot of action over the years.
The body is made from select Lightweight Alder, chosen by the Custom Shop for its Tone, and is coupled to a AA Maple Quartersawn neck featuring a 1963 ‘C’ profile. This has also been given the Heavy Relic treatment and vintage tint. The neck benefits from a modern 9.5” fretboard radius and is fitted with 21 Jumbo frets for easy string bending and vibrato.
The Limited Edition Heavy Relic Tele features a single coil/ humbucker pickup configuration. The bridge pickup is a Fender Handwound Twisted Tele single coil offering classic Tele bite. The neck pickup is an EVH Wolfgang humbucker that delivers a thick slab of ‘Fat Tele’ neck tone.
The pickups are wired to the traditional 3 way selector switch, volume and tone controls, however, these are fitted onto a reversed plate allowing better access to the volume. The volume control benefits from being a dual stacked 200/500k unit.
To complete the package, this stunning guitar comes supplied with a deluxe hardshell case, a strap and a Fender Custom Shop Certificate of Authenticity.
