Combining the classic style with modern features, this guitar stems from a distinctive year for the Telecaster - 1954. The Telecaster received a few updates that year, novel steel barrel bridge saddles were joined by a new "U"-shaped quartersawn maple neck profile and single-ply White Eggshell pickguard. Matchless in look and tone, the '54 Relic is loyal recreation of this classic with its period-correct top hat switch tip and hand-wound pickups. Providing the modern playability of a 9.5"-radius fingerboard with 6105 frets, Fender Custom Shop has fashioned a tried and true workhorse for todays nostalgic player.

Combining the best of the past and present, the '54 Relic Telecaster sports Fat 50's Tele wiring, '55-'57 Tele bridge assembly and vintage-style tuning machines, along with a hand-wound '51 Nocaster bridge pickup matched to a hand-wound '51 Loaded Nocaster neck pickup for perfectly balanced tone, 3-way switch, bone nut and round string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
