With its imaginative look, feel and authentic sound, the Custom Shop’s Limited Edition Heavy Relic H/S Tele is for the player who wants to look and sound totally unique.
The secret to the modern sound of this guitar is the combination of a hand wound Custom Shop Twisted Tele single-coil bridge pickup and sizzling EVH® humbucking neck pickup. The reversed control plate places the 250k/500k stacked volume control and master tone control within easy reach, while also hosting a traditional three-way pickup switch. The vintage-style three-saddle Tele bridge uses threaded steel saddles to enhance the Tele guitar’s inherent bright, snappy tone.
The two-piece body is crafted from hand-selected alder, carefully chosen by the Custom Shop for its tone, weight and appearance. The body and neck both sport a marvelous two-color Heavy Relic lacquer finish, based on one of our classic ‘Wallpaper’ finishes—either Candy Apple Red over Pink Paisley or Lake Placid Blue over Blue Floral. The Limited Edition Heavy Relic H/S Tele melds vintage cool Fender aesthetics and feel with modern tone to create a dream guitar that will perform exceptionally in any player’s hands.
Includes an engraved Limited Edition neck plate, Certificate of Authenticity and deluxe hardshell case.
