7lbs 14.5oz Relic version Fender Custom Shop 50s Vibra Tele, We have often been asked for Bigsby equipped custom Shop Telecasters, so we were delighted when Fender announced this Limited Edition model, and we especially like the Seymour Duncan Seth Lover neck pickup and Aged Black finish. This exquisite creative guitar takes a much loved Fender icon and blends in some welcome and more individual upgrades. This Aged Black nitrocellulose Relic model has a one piece carefully selected Ash body build and comes with a comfy expressive 1957 Soft "V" neck profile and 9.5" radius fingerboard.

The concept behind this guitars build started  with a ‘50/’51 Blackguard single-coil bridge pickup, then Fender added two of the most popular, time-tested Tele mods: a Bigsby B5 vibrato tailpiece and a Seymour Duncan Seth Lover humbucking neck pickup. Placed directly at the seventh harmonic for perfect, balanced tone, this pickup adds a unique note to the traditional Tele twang. Dual Stack HS Tele wiring ensures the pickups play nicely with each other, from an electrical standpoint; dual-stack 250k and 500k potentiometers guarantee each pickup operates at optimum resistance.

The two-piece select ash body wears a thin Heavy Relic lacquer finish, giving it the look of an instrument that’s spent its life being played onstage. The one-piece tinted quartersawn maple neck has a“’57 Soft V” profile and a 9.5”-radius fingerboard with 21 #6105 frets for a contemporary playing feel. Other features include 3-way switching, period-correct Black phenolic pickguard, 21 narrow-tall frets, vintage-style tuning machines with Fender logo, bone nut and disc string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
