The Fender Custom Shop 50s Twisted Tele Custom is everything one could want from the Custom Shop - blending vintage swagger with modern performance features, this masterfully crafted guitar is great for collectors and gigging professionals alike.

Sporting a two-piece ash body with a Journeyman Relic lacquer finish, this axe looks, feels, and plays just like a genuine vintage Fender. The one-piece 2A flame maple neck boasts a '57 soft "V" profile, a vintage compound radius, and 21 narrow tall frets, giving it an excellent in-hand feel for a broad range of techniques and styles.

Powering this Telecaster is a pair of hand-wound Twisted Tele pickups that deliver a rich, bold, twangy tone. The bridge pickup has been reversed, fattening the treble strings and tightening the bass side for tonal perfection, while the neck pickup is mounted to the body, giving it extra stability and a stronger sound.

Other features include a single-ply eight-hole parchment pickguard, a reverse Nocaster bridge with compensated brass saddles for perfect intonation, vintage-style tuning machines, a bone nut, and a single-wing string tree. If you've been in the market for a one-of-a-kind Telecaster that's fully spec'd out for optimal performance, look no further than this Custom Shop 50s Twisted Tele Custom.
