FENDER CUSTOM SHOP 1957 TELECASTER JOURNEYMAN RELIC - AGED CANDY APPLE RED - HAND-WOUND 55/56 TELE PICKUPS
Rock ‘n’ roll ruled in 1957. Cars grew fins, the space race got started, and the Fender Telecaster® was en vogue with a brand new look. In transition from the first half of the decade, the 1957 Fender Telecaster now had new features including a translucent white blonde lacquer finish over an ash body, a white pickguard, a one-piece maple neck with a “soft-V” back shape, stainless steel “barrel” saddles and a bridge pickup with staggered pole pieces.
In celebration of this classic Tele®, Fender has recreated the original as closely as possible while adding a few custom player features. The two-piece ash body has a Custom Shop Journeyman Relic® lacquer finish and single-ply “eggshell” pickguard. The one-piece rift-sawn maple neck has a tinted lacquer finish, a custom “soft-V” back shape with a slightly thicker carve toward the first fret, 9.5” fingerboard radius and 21 narrow tall frets. Hand-wound custom shop ’55-’56 pickups are connected to a Fat '50s control assembly for stronger overall tone with a more transparent bloom. Other features include a ’55-’57 bridge with steel “barrel” saddles and vintage-style tuning machines.
