New for 2024, the Fender Custom Shop introduces the 1960 Telecaster® Custom Heavy Relic®. An icon in the history of Fender guitars, this prized double-bound Telecaster is brought back to the forefront with its trio of Heavy Relic® lacquer finishes, two-piece select alder body and quartersawn maple neck with flat-laminated rosewood fingerboard.

Dressed in your choice of Super Faded Aged Chocolate Three-Color Sunburst, Aged Black or Aged Inca Silver and topped with a three-ply mint green pickguard, this Tele® Custom looks as if it was pried straight from the hands of a gigging guitarist in the ‘60s and transported to today—and with its set of Custom Shop hand-wound ’58 Tele® pickups, it sounds that way, too! Full of all the sparkly, clear highs, prominent midrange and smooth lows that made this era Tele® special, this 1960 Telecaster® Custom is truly something to behold.

Other premium features include '60-style Oval "C" back-shape, 9.5" radius, 21 narrow tall (6105) frets, Modern Tele wiring, 3-way switch, '60 Tele bridge with Gatton saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut, wing string tree, deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
