This Fender Custom Shop Postmodern Telecaster 1960 Journeyman Relic finished in Candy Apple Red is an absolutely stunning guitar. Built to look like the road worn classic Fenders of old yet play and have all the engineering benefits of modern guitar luthiery. This guitar truly is the best of both worlds. Featuring a compound radius neck, comfortable for both chords and for faster playing up the neck versatility was built into this Telecaster. Usually Telecasters don't quite have the potency in pickup to play into many other genres. This Custom Shop features Twisted pickups with more output than standard Telecasters so you can play whatever your heart desires. Includes Fender Hard Case.
A pair of Twisted Telecaster pickups that have been hand wound and tailored to their specific positions give this Postmodern Tele its fantastic voice.
These pickups are equipped with Alnico 5 magnets for increased focus and improved dynamics and feature flush-mount pole pieces ensuring even response across all six strings.
Formvar-coated magnet wire is in use on the neck pickup, adding brightness and clear, pristine quality to your tone while the enamel-coated bridge pickup magnet wire provides warmer, vintage-inspired tones.
The neck pickup also features a taller bobbin, allowing it to accommodate more winding's while the bridge pickup has a shorter bobbin, giving you a darker sounding, full-bodied midrange.
For the distinctive, single-cutaway body of the Telecaster, Fender have used 2-Piece Alder.
Known for its well-defined midrange and strong low end, Ash is strong and dense and is a very popular body wood for Fender guitars.
Not only does the classic Telecaster profile look awesome, it’s functional too, with the cutaway allowing for easy reach of the higher frets which is essential for wailing solos and other adventurous playing styles.
Attached to the body is a Quartersawn Maple neck which features the popular ‘60s style oval “C” shape profile for a comfortable and easy-playing grip.
Atop the neck is a classic Maple fretboard with a 9.5” – 12” compound radius. This compound radius has the fingerboard curving more dramatically at the nut to make holding chords easier while it flattens out on approaching the neck joint for great low-action bends without fretting out.
Narrow and tall, the Fender Custom Shop’s most popular fret wire, 6105 is used and offers fantastic playability.
Having been given the Journeyman Relic treatment, this guitar looks as though it has been well loved and well looked after.
Some moderate ware, finish checking and the odd ding along with slightly dulled hardware gives the appearance of an instrument that has come all the way from decades past, performed a few shows but has mostly been taken care of at home.
The perfect way to protect your investment, the Fender Custom Shop Postmodern Telecaster Journeyman Relic comes with a deluxe hard case.
Within the case, you’ll also find a premium Fender Custom Shop strap, picks, a bridge cover, certificate of authenticity and more.
