~Guitar pictured is the actual guitar that you will receive~

The 1960 Telecaster Relic is a faithful recreation of the revered turn-of-the-decade original in all its worn-in glory, built for players who prize a rare glimpse into Telecaster evolution with a few seamless streamlined improvements for a paramount playing experience. The two-piece ash body is hand selected for weight and grain and wears a Relic lacquer finish. A rift-sawn maple neck features a ’60-style “oval C” profile, topped by a 9.5”-radius flat-lam rosewood fingerboard with 21 narrow tall frets for comfort and optimum play.

Hand-wound ’58 Tele pickups are wound to spec and connected to a three-way switch and modern Tele wiring. Other features include a single-ply 8-hole parchment pickguard, 1960 Tele bridge with threaded steel saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.

The guitar pictured is the actual guitar that you will receive. It comes with Fender’s Factory Warranty and our 100% satisfaction guarantee! It will be professionally set up and ready to play before it leaves our store.
