Fender Custom Shop 1959 Telecaster Journeyman Relic

Straight from the Fender Custom Shop, this 1959 Journeyman Relic Telecaster offers the best of the vintage and modern world. The light tint nitro finish shows slight use across the body, and will continue to age as you play it, and the mimicked playing wear across the back of the neck is a close to the real thing as it gets! It comes loaded with two hand wound '58 Tele Pickups, Fender vintage tuning machines, and an Indian rosewood fretboard. If you're seeking a Telecaster that feels like a pre CBS classic, this one will not disappoint!
