The Fender Custom Shop 2016 American Custom Telecaster takes a double-bound early-‘60s classic and decks it out with knockout appointments that make it a dazzling performer. The lightweight ash body comes in multiple finishes with an NOS treatment. Pure Telecaster warmth and snap come from a hand-would Texas Special single-coil neck pickup and hand-wound Nocaster bridge pickup, with four-way switching and modern wiring.
Other premium features include a tinted AAA birdseye maple neck with “large C” profile, fast compound-radius (9.5”-12”) rosewood fingerboard with bone nut and 22 6105 frets, single-ply parchment pick guard, RSD bridge, and chrome tuners with pearl buttons. Includes black hard-shell case and Custom Shop certificate of authenticity.
