The Limited Edition '60 Telecaster Journeyman in Sage Green Metallic, a gem from the Fender Custom Shop, encapsulates the grandeur of Fender's history. This model is reminiscent of the early '60s when the Telecaster secured its place across numerous musical styles. The Journeyman series, renowned for its moderate relic appearance, offers an antique allure without an excessively aged look.
This '60 Telecaster is constructed with a 2-piece alder body, a favored tonewood for its balanced sound spectrum. The neck, crafted from quarter-sawn AA flamed maple, adopts a '60 Style Oval "C" profile, offering a versatile grip for an array of play styles. The AAA rosewood fingerboard, featuring a slab board flat lam construction and 9.50" radius, is graced with 6105 narrow tall frets and white micarta dot inlays.
The guitar houses hand-wound '58 Tele pickups at the bridge and neck, relic-ed to mirror the vintage theme. These pickups emulate the classic Tele twang, rich in vintage warmth. A trio of controls, including a 3-way selector, master volume, and master tone, allows a broad tonal palette.
The body sports a Sage Green Metallic finish in nitro lacquer, subjected to the Custom Shop's Journeyman Relic process. This finish imparts a gently aged aesthetic, akin to a guitar that's graced countless stages yet remained well-tended. The Journeyman treatment features lacquer checking with minor nicks and dings. The neck lacquer, tinted medium, bears a heavy relic treatment on the back, enhancing the vintage appeal and playability.
The Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition '60 Telecaster Journeyman in Sage Green Metallic pays homage to a defining epoch in Fender's history. It's a revived slice of the past, meticulously crafted with the precision and detail synonymous with the Custom Shop. This guitar is ideal for those seeking the vintage Fender aesthetic and sound, balanced by contemporary reliability and playability. Whether a collector, a professional musician, or a Fender enthusiast, this Limited Edition '60 Telecaster makes an extraordinary addition to any collection.
