Fender CS 1953 Heavy Relic Telecaster Butterscotch Blonde
The Fender Custom Shop takes these legendary instruments to a new level of craftsmanship. Fender Custom Shop's Relic treatment creates instruments that are spittin' images of the originals. Without sneaking a look at the neck heel stamps, you'd be hard-pressed to distinguish the Custom Shop 1953 Telecaster Heavy Relic from the real deal! A period-correct nitrocellulose lacquer finish gives the guitar a timeless, classic look, while the relic process gives you a guitar that looks like it's seen its share of hard touring.

The Fender Custom Shop 1953 Heavy Relic Telecaster is as close to the genuine article as you can get. The '53 Heavy Relic Tele gives you the twang, bite, and vibe of an original.
