Fender Custom Shop® Custom Classic Telecaster®, Transparent White - Sold
Not everyone wants a Tele that looks and feels like it was made fifty years ago. This Custom Classic Tele has all the features players have come to love plus a few modern upgrades, like a premium ash body with a transparent "thin" nitrocellulose finish, a large "C" shape figured maple neck and fingerboard, 22 medium jumbo frets, two single-coil Tele-style pickups with a four-position blade switch and chrome plated steel Tele bridge plate. This one was made to our own specifications and comes in this beautiful see-through custom color and has some nice flame in the neck
Custom Classic Telecaster at a glance
Premium ash body with Honey Blonde nitrocellulose lacquer finish and three-ply parchment pickguard
One Custom Shop "Twisted" Tele single-coil (neck) and one Classic Tele single-coil (bridge)
Large, one-piece "C" shape figured maple neck and fingerboard with polished satin urethane finish
Ash Body with "Thin" Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish - This is a really great looking Telecaster thanks to the premium ash body in a rich color. To enhance the look and allow the ash body to more freely resonate, Fender uses a special "thin" nitrocellulose lacquer finish on this guitar. The perfect complement comes in the form of a three-ply parchment pickguard, plus the distinctive "Nocaster" chrome dome knobs and "top hat" switch tip.
The Trademark Tele Sound - The original Telecaster had lots of top end thanks to the hand wound single-coil pickups. Fender knows better than to mess with that trademark sound, so they fitted this baby with a Custom Shop "Twisted" Tele single-coil in the neck position and a Classic single-coil in the bridge position. You get all of the twang and high end sparkle the Tele has become famous for since it first appeared in 1951.
Fast Playing "C" Shape Maple Neck and Fingerboard - Leo Fender wasn't afraid to "think outside the box" when it came to guitar designs - after all, he was an engineer, not a guitar player. In the 1950s and well into the 1970s, the blond natural maple neck became almost synonymous with Fender guitars. The Custom Classic Tele carries on that tradition with a large "C" shape figured maple neck and fingerboard with the modern polished satin urethane finish.
