New Fender Custom Shop ’65 Telecaster Journeyman Relic


Nitrocellulose lacquer finish in lovely, lightly aged Sonic Blue, light alder body (overall weight 7.1 pounds), maple neck with “’69 U” profile, rosewood fingerboard with micarta dots, 7.25″ radius, vintage-style fret wire, 3-ply mint guard, Kluson-style tuners, and wired up with a flat-pole handwound ’51 Nocaster pickup in the bridge and a corresponding handwound ’63 Tele pickup in the neck position. Looks like a million bucks, sounds fantastic with those handwound Custom Shop pickups, and a real player, resonant and responsive. Made in Corona, California, USA, carries a lifetime warranty, and comes in its factory deluxe black tolex hard case with all papers (including spec sheet and COA) and accessories.
