Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition 1951 HS Telecaster Heavy Relic Electric Guitar - Wide Fade 2 Color Sunburst


One of the most iconic models in Fender history, the "Blackguard" Telecaster has earned its place as a tonal force on countless recordings and music performances. This limited-edition Telecaster HS Heavy Relic has been designed with the same customized modifications made famous by players and technicians since its inception. The two-piece ash body wears a Heavy Relic lacquer finish that imparts the look and feel of a well-loved instrument that’s seen its share of action while the tinted rift-sawn maple neck has a comfortable 10/’56 “V” profile, topped with a 9.5” fingerboard radius with 21 narrow tall frets. A Seymour Duncan Seth Lover humbucker neck pickup and hand-wound “Crushed” Blackguard Tele bridge pickup are combined with dual-stack HS Tele wiring to create a perfect sonic balance using 250k (bridge) and 500k (neck) volume and tone potentiometers. Additional features include a ’51 Nocaster bridge with compensated brass saddles, a single-ply black pickguard, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and disk string tree. A deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity are also included.
