The flagship of Fender's production, instruments from the Custom Shop range are guitars and basses that meet the highest quality standards, be it in the wood selection, the pickups winding, the finishes or the overall build quality. This results in highly reliable instruments with inimitable sound, providing great playability.

Before it was called the Telecaster, then Tele had existed for a few months under the name "Broadcaster" (which was removes because Gretsch sent a cease and desist). We have selected a perfect replica from the Fender Custom Shop of this daring instrument that has become an absolute classic. For the occasion, the Custom Shop has brought out some of its most beautiful pieces of ash and maple, and the craftsmanship is obviously magnificent. The adjustments are perfect, the fittings are impeccably assembled, and the whole thing exudes authenticity.

It resonates very well unplugged: the ash that makes up the body is superb. The neck profile is a 1950 Blackguard (a kind of thick U) that allows for great playing comfort. Otherwise there are no real surprises : this guitar has been the number one choice of many guitarists around the world for 70 years.

The hand-wound pickups have the uniqueness of the Telecaster and the authenticity of this instrument shines through in every position. From the velvety, roundness of the neck pickup to the midrange-filled plucking sensation of the bridge pickup, this guitar is right where you want it to be. The intermediate position is very balanced and opens the doors to wild rhythms or smooth leads, while the volume and tone pots perform their job with great precision.

Delivered with the usual Custom Shop accessories, in a magnificent case, and with its certificate of authenticity, this marvel is guaranteed for 2 years in our workshop.
