C.SHOP 2018 1954 RELIC TELECASTER

MORE ABOUT 1954 RELIC® TELECASTER®

Combining the classic style with modern features, this guitar stems from a distinctive year for the Telecaster®—1954. The Telecaster® received a few updates that year, novel steel barrel bridge saddles were joined by a new “U”-shaped quartersawn maple neck profile and single-ply White Eggshell pickguard. Matchless in look and tone, our ‘54 Relic® is loyal recreation of this classic with its period-correct top hat switch tip and hand-wound pickups. Providing the modern playability of a 9.5”-radius fingerboard with 6105 frets, Fender® Custom Shop has fashioned a tried and true workhorse for today’s nostalgic player.

Combining the best of the past and present, the ’54 Relic® Telecaster® sports Fat 50’s Tele® wiring, ’55-’57 Tele® bridge assembly and vintage-style tuning machines, along with a hand-wound ’51 Nocaster® bridge pickup matched to a hand-wound ’51 Loaded Nocaster® neck pickup for perfectly balanced tone, 3-way switch, bone nut and round string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
