Fender Custom Shop Telecaster

Not exactly as shown above, but close enough. Yes. Another new guitar in the stable. Had it for a little while now. Looks a lot older though, doesn’t it? Almost as old as me.

From the custom shop, this beautiful 1960s heavy relic Telecaster.

The guitar has a very well-faded sonic blue finish. So faded that it looks almost white, or at least the part of the guitar that still has a finish! The neck pickup is a Seymour Duncan antiquity humbucker and the bridge pickup is a hand-wound Texas special single coil. The neck is a large “C” shape which feels just about perfect for my hands.
