The 1952 Fender Telecaster is the quintessential electric guitar that started it all and is still a favorite after all these years. Simplicity of design and the alluring tone that only a Tele can produce have graced countless recordings and stages over its long lifespan, and the Custom Shop '52 Telecaster captures the original essence in all its glory. The guitar features a two-piece select ash body, a one-piece rift sawn maple neck with a comfortable '57 "soft V" profile, vintage compound-radius (7.25"-9.5") fingerboard and 21 narrow tall (6105) frets for comfortable play in all registers.

Custom Shop hand-wound '50/'51 Blackguard pickups provide perfect vintage-correct tone in combination with '51 modified Nocaster wiring, which lets the player blend both pickups together in switch position 1. Other features include a single-ply black phenolic pickguard, '51-'54 Tele bridge with brass barrel saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and disk string tree.

Comes with a Deluxe Hardshell Case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
