What we say:

At A Glance:

Designed by southern Californian native and Fender Custom Shop legend Paul Waller, the Fender Custom Shop 1953 Tele sports a host of stunning features that combine to give you an axe that harkens back to the heyday of the humble Telecaster.

Paul Waller joined Fender in 2003, and became a Master Builder in 2010, building stunning instruments including basses for Adam Clayton, Strats for Buddy Guy and even the legendary "Hitmaker" Strat for Nile Rodgers. When he was tasked with designing this 1953 Tele series, he really knocked it out the park. From the Handwound Twisted Tele pickup set to the '53 Soft "V" neck carve (based off of a unique neck Paul keeps in his desk drawer!), this guitar takes everything that made those early days of the Telecaster great, and brings them bang-up-to-date.

Features We Love:

The Paul Waller Neck Shape

The 1953 Tele sports a neck shape unlike almost any other, the '53 Soft "V". This neck carve is based off of a unique neck that Paul Waller himself keeps in his desk in the Fender Custom Shop! This popular, chunky neck carve feels great in the hand, sports an instant old-school feel, but it's not quite like any other 50's neck you've ever played!

Handwound Twisted Tele Pickups

The Fender Twisted Tele pickups give you warm, vintage style tones from the bridge, combined with a brightness and sparkle from the neck. Built around Alnico 5 magnets, these pickups are designed to offer you hot high output tone, with a touch of Stratocaster character for good measure.

Roasted Birdseye Maple Neck

Birdseye Maple is a fantastic looking wood. This piece has been roasted which makes the maple more stable and more resonant, making your tone a little warmer and looking incredible while its at it.

  • This guitar takes everything that makes early era Telecaster's great and brings them bang up to date.
