Fender Custom Shop 1963 Journeyman Relic Tele Custom - Chocolate 3 Colour Sunburst / Rosewood
The original Telecaster Custom was an upgrade to the standard model of the day. With its Custom Colour option and smart double bound edges, it stood out from the crowd and became an instant classic. The Fender Custom Shop 1963 Journeyman Relic Tele Custom, here in Chocolate 3 Colour Sunburst finish, takes this iconic guitar a step further combining classic design with some modern touches.
The double edge-bound body is a two piece design using hand selected alder chosen for its light weight and resonance. This is finished in a stunning Nitrocellulose Journeyman Relic finish with just enough ageing to give it the look and feel of a well looked after original.
The neck is made from quartersawn maple and features a 1963 C shaped profile. It also features a Journeyman Relic Nitrocellulose finish. The AAA Rosewood fretboard features a modern 9.5 radius and is home to 21 narrow jumbo frets and Vintage clay dot position markers.
Pickups are a pair of Custom Shop Handwound Twisted Tele single coil units. These are wired through the traditional volume, tone and three way selector. The electrics benefit from the inclusion of a Greasebucket Tone circuit ensuring the volume is retained when the tone control is used.
Other features include a 3 ply parchment pickguard, a 58/63 bridge with threaded saddles and a set of vintage style tuners.
The 63 Journeyman Tele Relic Custom package is complete with the inclusion of a Deluxe hard shell case, a leather strap and a Custom Shop Certificate of authenticity.
