This Fender Custom Shop ’52 Telecaster Relic in Aged Nocaster Blonde blends key details of the early Telecaster design with player forward features and the top shelf craftsmanship of the legendary Fender Custom Shop.
This guitar features a light and resonant two-piece ash body weighing just 7lbs 3oz. The 5/4 quartersawn maple neck combines the iconic 10/56 “V” profile with a modern 9.5” radius. 1st fret depth is a substantial .910” thickening out to .975” at the 12th fret. 21 narrow tall 6105 frets are loaded into the properly worn maple fingerboard adorned with black micarta dots.
The Aged Nocaster Blonde finish on the guitar features the Relic treatment, with natural looking wear, nicks and dings throughout. Arm wear and belt rash are prominent but not excessive. The neck is not worn down to the wood on the back side, but the fingerboard has finger wear to the wood in all the right spots in and near the first position.
The pickups are a hand wound ’51 Nocaster in the neck and a Fat 50s Telecaster in the bridge. controlled by a 3-way, master volume, and a master tone. The 3 way is wired for modern bridge/both/neck control.
Ships complete with lacquered tweed Fender Custom Shop hard case, COA, and a lightly aged “ashtray” bridge cover.
