Ok, let's talk about it. There is little 1952 left on this guitar. This is all modern build styling with a vintage nod. Contours, top bound, wired from the back. This is a sleek instrument that looks amazing with the NOS Charcoal Frost Metallic finish that is not hidden by a pickguard. She plays a little fast and has pop in the attack. A real cross generational joy. Fender Custom Shop Master Builder Dennis Galuszka designed and built this Tele for the Summer Fender Dealer Meeting. Lucky us we got it. Now we offer it to you.
