Preowned 2017, near mint

Just arrived! One beautiful preowned "1953" Fender Custom Shop Tele in a lush Closet Classic aged cherry sunburst finish. Built with very light weight ash, this Tele is resonant and very comfortable to play. We particularly like its 7.25" radius U shaped neck. The profile is totally vintage Fender yet it's not as clubby as many early Teles were. Measuring .88" at the first fret and .960" at the 12th, it's a very familiar U shape but without added bulk.

CRAIG'S POV

Just arrived! One beautiful preowned "1953" Fender Custom Shop Tele in a lush Closet Classic aged cherry sunburst finish. Built with very light weight ash, this Tele is resonant and very comfortable to play. I particularly like its 7.25" radius U shaped neck. The profile is totally vintage Fender yet it's not as clubby as many early Teles were. Measuring .88" at the first fret and .960" at the 12th, it's a very familiar U shape but without added bulk. The pickups are wired in the original old school '53 style. The neck position is the so-called "dark channel." Middle position is the neck pickup with volume and tone, and bridge position is the bridge pickup with volume and tone. It also has the Fender Greasebucket tone control which is a cool way to roll off the highs and lows in your guitar while preventing your tone from getting muddy. This is especially helpful for creating sparkling clean tones, but it's also useful for overdriven sounds.

All the case candy and certificates are included and the condition is near mint. For those players who want the early Tele playing experience in a beautiful and gently priced priced Fender, this guitar is certainly worthy of your consideration.

If you'd like to find out more about this item, just call or e-mail me. It would be my pleasure to talk to you about it.
