About Fender Custom Shop Guitars

The Fender Custom Shop is where incredible Fender guitars are hand built by the best craftspeople in the business. The guitars made here are the best of the best. Some are team built guitars (created by numerous artisans). Others are master built instruments created entirely by one particularly esteemed staff member. These are the same people who build guitars for Eric Clapton, John 5, Jeff Beck and John Mayer.

Custom Shop Stratocasters and Telecasters are available in a range of finish styles from their 'Time Machine' process. This is home to the famous 'Relic' process which takes place in a few relative degrees of severity. The Custom Shop also makes Jazzmasters, P-Basses and Jazz Basses.
