New for 2023, the Fender Custom Shop introduces the Limited Twisted Tele Custom Journeyman Relic, a real mind bender with special pickups, Bigsby® vibrato tailpiece, reverse control plate and more. Its striking Journeyman Relic lacquer finish in Two-Colour Sunburst, Aged HLE Gold and Aged Ocean Turquoise imparts a "used but not abused" vibe, as if it has been well cared for while changing hands or being handed down over many years of play at home and at the occasional jam session or gig. We're talking long life but only moderate playing wear - a very lucky find with a touch of spidery finish checking, a few "friendly" down-to-the-wood nicks and dings and some slight hardware aging.

The two-piece select ash body has an off-center seam with parchment binding, paired with a one-piece rift-sawn maple neck with a '57-style Soft "V" profile. Its reverse control plate puts the volume control within easy pinky reach for volume swells. Dual Custom Shop hand-wound Twisted Tele pickups are each tailored to their position to achieve individual sonic character, delivering hot high-output Telecaster guitar tone with a dash of sparkling Stratocaster® character. The neck pickup's taller bobbin accommodates more windings, combined with a slightly shorter bridge pickup bobbin for dark full-bodied midrange. Fat '50s wiring delivers stronger overall tone with more transparent bloom, with volume and tone controls that react more smoothly and evenly, with less of the typical treble loss that occurs when rolling back on volume. The Bigsby B5 vibrato tailpiece adds unparalleled pedal steel-like shimmer to the sound (and also looks so cool).

Other premium features include a 9.5"-radius maple fingerboard with 21 narrow tall (6105) frets and a bone nut, three-way pickup switch, single-ply parchment pickguard, vintage-style tuners, wing string tree, deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.

Got this in a transfer from Bloor to Calgary Royal Vista - thanks, Tracey! The relic is very light, and just right without the overall heavy amounts done so many times. First thing I didn’t know was that it has a beautiful binding, not shown in the photo. Enhances the overall look greatly. Second, the minor dings and finish chequing is so light it’s almost something that needs to be looked for. The aged turquoise is gorgeous. I’m swapping the pickguard for a “Brain Eaters” b-movie art guard. Great guitar!

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
