This masterfully crafted guitar is a true testament to Fender's renowned craftsmanship and attention to detail, offering an exceptional playing experience and vintage-inspired tones.
The journey begins with the Journeyman Relic Lacquer Finish, meticulously applied to the 2-Piece Select Alder Body, providing a timeless look that's aged to perfection, as if it's seen countless stages and studio sessions. Paired with this, the 1-Piece 3A Flame Maple Neck boasts a '57 Style Soft "V" Back-Shape, ensuring comfortable playability that harks back to the golden era of Telecasters. The 7.25" to 9.5" Vintage Compound Radius and 21 Narrow Tall (6105) Frets further enhance the fretting experience, facilitating easy bending and chord voicings.
The soul of the Hotshot Telecaster lies in its Custom Shop Hand-Wound Loaded '51 Nocaster® (Bridge) and Texas Special™ Strat (Neck/RWRP Middle) Pickups. These pickups deliver a versatile range of tones that are rich in character and imbued with vintage flair. The Hotshot Tele Wiring and 5-Way Switch allow you to explore a multitude of sonic possibilities, from twangy single-coil cleans to gritty, powerful overdriven tones.
To ensure an authentic vintage appearance, the guitar features a 3-Ply Parchment Pickguard and '58-'63 Tele Bridge with RSD Brass Compensated Saddles, which not only enhance the aesthetics but also contribute to the instrument's impeccable tone and intonation. Vintage-Style Tuning Machines and a Bone Nut ensure tuning stability and resonance.
Every detail has been carefully considered, right down to the Wing String Tree, which provides a smooth string path for reliable tuning. As a testament to its exclusivity, this guitar comes with a Deluxe Hardshell Case, protecting it with style when not in use. Additionally, a Strap is included for comfortable and secure performances.
Owning this masterpiece means owning a piece of Fender's legacy. As a final assurance of its authenticity, the Limited Edition Hotshot Telecaster comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, validating its handcrafted origins and top-tier quality.
