What we say:

At A Glance:

The Fender Custom Shop 52 Telecaster Heavy Relic Aged Natural Maple Fingerboard Master Built by Ron Thorn has everything we love to see in a Tele. This stunning recreation of an old school legend boasts a range of superb, vintage-era features including the '51 Style "U" neck profile but is blended beautifully with modern features such as a compound radius fingerboard and Twisted Tele pickups. All coming together to make this a classic looking and feeling instrument with the tone and easy playability of any modern Fender Custom Shop instrument.

Features We Love:

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 alongside that vintage tele tone, with a touch of Stratocaster character for good measure.
