    Original price was: $4,850.00.Current price is: $4,050.00.
    Here's a barely played 2023 Fender Custom Shop 55 Tele in aged white blonde with a drop dead beautiful roasted AAA flame neck. Lightly reliced and a fat 54 U neck. Great Tele. Fender sez: The 1955 Telecaster, also known as the “white guard” Tele® is an all-time classic with features including a single-ply white pickguard, translucent white blonde finish, smooth barrel steel bridge saddles, staggered bridge pickup pole pieces and a chunky neck profile. In this faithful recreation, the Fender Custom Shop has captured the tone, playability, look and feel of this archetypal model. The two-piece select ash body wears a heavy checked nitrocellulose lacquer finish, and the roasted  AAA flame maple neck features a chunky ’54 “U” profile, topped by a 9.5”-radius fingerboard with 21 narrow tall frets. Period-correct hand-wound ’55/’56 pickups are paired with a three-way switch and Fat ’50s Tele wiring for strong tone with transparent bloom.

  • Here's a Fender Custom Shop relic 52 Tele in Nocaster blonde, with Fender's "flash coat" lacquer finish and 51 modified NoCaster wiring -- first position is the bridge pickup and you can use what is normally the tone pot to blend in as much neck pickup as you like. Position 2 is the neck pickup, position three is also the neck pickup with some of the highs rolled off, not the dull vintage "bass" setting, but very tasteful and useful, great with overdrive.  Also includes an extra Fat 50s modern Tele control plate if you prefer the more modern 3-way switching. Fender sez: The 1952 Fender Telecaster is the quintessential electric guitar that started it all and is still a favorite after all these years. Simplicity of design and the alluring tone that only a Tele® can produce have graced countless recordings and stages over its long lifespan, and the Custom Shop ’52 Telecaster captures the original essence in all its glory. The guitar features a two-piece select ash body, a one-piece rift sawn maple neck with a comfortable ’57 “soft V” profile, vintage compound-radius (7.25”-9.5”) fingerboard and 21 narrow tall (6105) frets for comfortable play in all registers. Custom Shop hand-wound ’50/’51 Blackguard pickups provide perfect vintage-correct tone in combination with ’51 modified Nocaster wiring, which lets the player blend both pickups together in switch position 1. Other features include a single-ply black phenolic pickguard, ’51-’54 Tele bridge with brass barrel saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and disk string tree. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.

  • Here's a Fender Custom Shop 59 Vintage Custom hardtail Strat  in NOS sonic blue with a mint green pickguard and nice dark rosewood fretboard. One of my favorite color combos. Fender sez: "1959 saw the advent of several important feature changes to the Stratocaster® including a slab rosewood fingerboard with clay position dots, a three-ply mint green pickguard with 8, 9 or 10 screws depending on the month it was built, and a metal spacer added to the string tree. This hardtail version would have been on the rare side, which ups the collectability and cool factors.

  • Here's a new Huss and Dalton Traditional OM in east Indian rosewood with a thermo-cured (torrified) sitka spruce top, Gotoh 510 tuners and a handsome tweed case. Always one of my favorites OMs, and the build quality is second to none. Everybody knows that like a fine wine, well-kept acoustic guitars get better with age. The passage of decades cures the wood through exposure to light and air. Huss and Dalton now offers sitka spruce that has been “torrified,” or exposed to a careful heating process that achieves the same results that occur naturally over time. The wood appears darker, as vintage guitars do, and it is lighter and stiffer. But how does it sound? Amazing, in a word. Condition: New; Top: Sitka spruce, torrified; Back and sides: East Indian rosewood; Neck: Mahogany; Nut: 1 3/4; Width: 15 1/8; Depth: 4 1/8; Scale: 25.4; Binding: Tortoise; Purfling: b/w/b; Rosette: b/w/b; Lefthanded guitar (of course)

  • I love Teles and it's alway cool when Fender builds one with a different twist to it. Here is a Thinline P90 relic in a chocolate 3 tone sunburst with some cool features ... Fender Custom Shop P90 at the neck and handwound 51 loaded NoCaster pickup at the bridge gives some great tonal options. A compound 7.25-9.5 radius gives you the best of both worlds up and down the neck, and the fat offcenter V profile brings the tone with medium vintage frets. The hollow body with an F-hole keeps the weight down --  Nice and light at 6 3/4 pounds. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.

  • I love 00 guitars -- the tonal balance and perfect size for sitting on the couch or performing. Here's a beautiful 12-fret Collings 002H with the Traditional package. With Collings’ typical terrific projection and great volume, this guitar will amaze you with its voice. Beautiful build, 12-fret, slotted headstock with Waverley tuners, a gorgeous style 2 sunburst, Traditional package, short scale, pre-war scalloped bracing, Traditional neck carve, ebony fretboard and bridge, and tortoise/wood binding. Impossible to put down. Lifetime warranty and hardshell case. Serial # 3397 Collings sez: " The new Traditional Series variations of our classic 12-fret 00 take a vintage-inspired approach to voicing and construction designed to produce a strong fundamental response and open feel, with rounder highs and less overtone complexity compared to the signature Collings sound. The combination of an open slotted peghead, shorter 24 7/8" scale length, and pyramid bridge paired with our ultra-thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish and newly redesigned neck support make for a woody and articulate voice that exemplifies everything we love about the T-Series. With a longer upper bout than its 14-fret counterpart, the 00 offers rich, balanced tone with excellent note separation, making it a fine choice for fingerstyle guitarists, singer-songwriters, or anyone else looking for a balance of comfort, volume, and responsiveness." Condition: New; Top: Select sitka spruce; Back and sides: Mahogany; Neck: Mahogany, Traditional carve; Nut: 1 3/4; Width: 14 1/4; Depth: 4; Scale: 24 7/8; Binding: Tortoise; Purfling: b/w/b; Rosette: b/w/b; Orientation: Lefthanded (of course)
