Description & Specs

The Fender Custom Shop introduces the Limited Edition 1964 “Bobbed” Telecaster Thinline Relic, which combines several fan-favorite Tele appointments in one remarkably distinctive guitar. Its chambered two-piece select ash Thinline body (mahogany on Aged Natural model) with classic “F” hole delivers the perfect blend of warmth with crisp attack and sparkling resonance, presented in authentically worn-in Relic lacquer finishes in classic Aged Natural, Three-Color Sunburst and Aged White Blonde.

The quartersawn maple neck is fashioned with a comfortably easy-playing 1960s-style Oval “C” profile, topped by a 9.5”-radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard with 21 Jumbo (6100) frets and a bone nut. True Telecaster tone with biting mids and articulation comes from a pair of Fender Wide-Range CuNiFe humbucking pickups with ’72 Tele Thinline wiring and three-way switching.

Other premium features include a four-ply aged white Pearloid pickguard (three-ply black on Aged White Blonde model), three-saddle custom “chopped” Telecaster bridge with Custom Shop RSD (Research Special Design) brass saddles for perfect intonation without sacrificing tone, vintage-style “F” tuners, wing string tree, deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.

We're right off the CTA Brown Line 'Paulina' Stop Just North of Belmont and just West of Ashland.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts! If you have any questions, we’re here for you!
