With its intricate color pattern and alluringly strong grain, this Artisan Spalted Maple and Alder Wood Guitar is an eye-catching example of the Fender Custom Shop’s mojo. Equal parts work of art and functional instrument, this guitar lets its exotic mix of roasted maple, spalted maple, roasted AAA birdseye maple and African blackwood do the talking, blazing forth with sonic and visual character.
Two hand-wound Custom Shop 1958 single-coil Telecaster pickups provide authentic vintage-style tone, with all the snarling bite and twang that made the Tele a legend. The neck of the Fender Artisan Telecaster sports a comfortably speedy '63 "C"-shaped profile, capped by a 9.5"-12" compound-radius fingerboard that's rounded near the nut for comfortable chording, flattening out towards the upper registers for fear-free bending.
