Have you always wanted a golden-era Fender Telecaster but it's forever felt out of reach? This Fender Custom Shop Limited-edition ’61 Telecaster Relic can turn that dream into a reality! This passionate recreation of a 1961 Telecaster boasts period-accurate hardware and specs including a resonant 2-piece alder body, a premium quarter-sawn maple neck with a comfortable ‘60s Oval “C” profile, and a rosewood fingerboard hand-chosen for its color and quality. Two Custom Shop pickups deliver exceptional high-output tone with plenty of versatile options between a classic Black Guard bridge pickup and a more nuanced Twisted Tele pickup in the neck. Plus, Fender’s proprietary Relic aging process gives the guitar a played-in feel that’s stunning comfortable yet fully functional. This Relic is the sure-fire way to own a ‘60s-style instrument without the hassles of broken hardware, warped necks, or finnicky electronics!

The Limited-edition '61 Telecaster Relic stacks tone in your favor via a pair of powerful pickups: a Custom Shop Black Guard Tele in the bridge and a Twisted Tele in the neck. The Black Guard bridge pickup, first featured on early '50s Fender Broadcasters, delivers searing hot output with midrange growl that outperforms most vintage single-coils. The Twisted Tele in the neck delivers wide, airy tone calibrated with formvar-coated wire to accommodate extra pickup windings that add a touch of rounded characteristics akin to a Strat for results that howl with Telecaster twang when digging in but mellow into Strat-like sparkle when finessed.
