For our money, Telecasters don't get much cooler looking than a Tele Custom, especially when they're Fiesta Red. Featuring a 2-piece, double-bound Alder body, Journeyman level relic, rift sawn maple neck with a round laminate rosewood fretboard & clay dots, 60's Oval C neck (.82"-.89"), and Custom Shop '63 pickups, this guitar just feels and sounds right.
This Tele Custom has all the classic Tele twang and bite you could ask for, though it's a bit warmer and fatter - almost P90 like - than some Teles. The vintage style wiring also yields a more open tone w/a heavily filtered neck tone - perfect for 60's fuzzed-out excursions (the 3 way yields bridge, neck, and neck w/capacitor options, btw).
Like all the guitars we've gotten from the Custom Shop, this '63 Tele Custom is very loud acoustically, lively, snappy, has tons of sustain...Fender nailed all the details and the results are simply phenomenal. Priced with hardshell case.
