The all-new Limited Edition HS Tele Custom Relic combines discerning custom features with a compelling look and playability. A Josefina hand-wound humbucker combined with a hot hand-wound Texas Special bridge pickup and dual-stack HS Tele wiring provide blazing yet balanced tone. The two-piece hand-selected ash body wears a worn-in relic lacquer finish and parchment binding, while the gorgeous caramel-colored roasted 3A flame maple neck wears a flat-lam rosewood fingerboard, ’60 Style “oval C” profile and 21 narrow tall (6105) frets.
Additional features include a three-ply black pickguard, ’58-’63 Tele bridge with compensated brass saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and a single wing string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
Each Custom Shop Limited Edition instrument is only available for a short time, which makes it eminently collectible and adds to its investment value. Crafted with many features reserved only for certain artists and master built instruments, they are just what the name says they are: highly anticipated limited-edition models that go very quickly.
