More about Limited Edition Caballo Tono Ligero Relic®
The Caballo Tono Ligero or “light tone horse” is a customized creation only found in the Fender Custom Shop, which plays host to extraordinary features not found in classical Fender fashion. The lightweight, resonant hollow ash body features an f-hole and has a perfectly worn-in relic lacquer finish. A stunning one-piece 3A flame maple neck with a 10/56 “V” profile and 9.5” fingerboard radius wears narrow tall (6105) frets for comfortably precise playing.
A pair of chrome T.V. Jones® pickups offers an uncommon growl right between a bright single-coil and a dark humbucker, providing a perfectly personal tone. A three-way switch and Fat ’50s Tele wiring with 500K pots provide balance and complementary response between the pickups. Additional features include a single-ply parchment Caballo Tono pickguard, sawed off Tele® bridge with compensated brass RSD saddles, Sperzel® Deluxe tuning machines with pearl buttons, bone nut and a vintage disc string tree. Includes a 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.
