More about ARTISAN CLARO WALNUT TELECASTER®

Alluringly warm-looking thanks to its mix of a roasted butternut body and claro walnut top, the Artisan Claro Walnut Tele effortlessly melds distinctively upscale looks with traditional Fender sound and design. A Fender Custom Shop original, crafted for the fearless player who’s eager to stand out on stage, this Tele is the pinnacle of elegance and playability.

Two hand-wound Custom Shop 1958 single-coil Telecaster pickups provide authentic vintage-style tone, with all the snarling bite and twang that made the Tele a legend. The neck sports a comfortably speedy “ ’63 C”-shaped profile, capped by a 9.5”-12” compound-radius fingerboard that’s rounded near the nut for comfortable chording, flattening out towards the upper registers for fear-free bending.

Other features include a lightweight two-piece body with nitrocellulose lacquer finish and WLS undercoat, “ ’63 C”-shaped neck profile, 9.5”-12” compound-radius fingerboard, gold RSD bridge, gold hardware, 21 6105 frets, gold anodized pickguard, bone nut and wing string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
