One of the big differences between a Fender Custom Shop reissue with "relic" finish and most non-Fender versions is that Fender does a very high-quality lacquer finish before aging it. You gotta feel for the guy who did such a great job spaying the white finish on this Tele and then had to see it given years of crazing and wear just a few days later. But Fender's Custom Shop, to their credit, gave it a very believable relic treatment. This lightwieght version has a late 1959 vibe with a white pickguard, rosewood fretboard and a chunky “C” shape neck. This guitar is loaded with Twisted Tele pickups that were hand wound by Josefina Campos. Includes the original black case and all the case candy and COA.
