Fender Custom Shop LTD CuNiFe Telecaster Custom Heavy Relic - Sherwood Metallic

Wow! There is nothing like a Tele with a humbucker! Just ask Keith Richards. This Telecaster Custom is just about as good as it gets. Featuring 51' No-Caster pickup in the bridge and an authentic CuNiFe Wide-Range Humbucker in the bridge. When first designed, the Wide-Range Humbuckers were made with CuNiFe magnets. CuNiFe is a special alloy made of Copper, Nickel, and Iron. Fender stopped producing pickups with this alloy in 1979 due to production and supply demands. CuNiFe pickups feature a outstanding high clarity and a rich bass response. If you want the tone and response of a vintage Wide-Range Humbucker, this is the guitar you are looking for. I often find myself in awe of the versatility of a Tele. Its amazing the amount of tones you can get out of such a simple instrument. Just shows you the true genius of Leo Fender.

Beyond the electronics, the guitar features all of desirable and comfortable features of a 60's Telecaster. The neck is made of roasted maple and features a very comfortable "large" C shape neck. The fretboard is made of rosewood and has a 9.5" radius. The body is made of roasted alder and features a stunning Sherwood Metallic finish over a 3-tone Sunburst. The relic job is amazing and you will spend hours gazing over every nuance and detail of this guitar.
