New from the Fender Custom Shop, the 1952 Telecaster Journeyman Relic digs deep into the roots of Fender's earliest solid body guitars to deliver a period-accurate recreation of a vintage classic. This expertly crafted instrument boasts the authentic looks, tone, feel, and vibe of the classic original from it's debut decade.

Featuring an Ash body paired with a '52 "U"-shaped Maple neck and 1-piece, 21 fret, 7.25" radius Maple fretboard with vintage frets, this Fender Custom Shop provides a smooth and comfortable playing experience. With a balanced high end and a musical midrange, the Fender Custom Shop 1951 Nocaster single-coil pickups deliver unmistakable Tele tone  authentic to the era. Rounding out the period-accurate appointments are a Vintage bridge with brass saddles, Fender Gotoh Vintage machine heads, Vintage Telecaster wiring, and Micarta nut.

Boasting Fender's Custom Shop Journeyman Relic finish, this world-class instrument faithfully conveys the look, feel, and character of a guitar that has been handed down over years, with slight finish checking, "friendly" nicks and dings, mildly dulled hardware, and moderate playing wear, further adding to the mojo of this instrument.
