Fender Custom Shop Telecaster 1953 Heavy Relic Buttersotch Blonde


Not in 1951 but in 1953 Fender installed the strongest necks on the Telecaster. We’ve got a series of ‘53 reissues made by the Custom Shop with exactly these authentic "U" profiles (0.950" at the 1st fret and 1.000" at the 12th fret). Yes, it's a real "man's neck" - but somehow it feels just right for this Telecaster and after a short period of getting used to it, you've arrived "at home". Except for the almost universally strong neck, the 53 Tele only differed from last year's model in a few details. The well-known tone control finally replaced the blend control and the screws were now consistently used with a Phillips head. The best-known player of a 53 Tele is probably Roy Buchanan, whose "Nancy" with its fat, bluesy and often heavily distorted tone convinced many rockers of the qualities of this "country guitar". But Keith Richards also played a 53 Tele in the early 80s, which was already equipped with the well-known mods (humbucker on the neck and brass bridge).

Fat isn't just the neck, it's the tone of this '53 reissue,too! It sounds powerful in all registers and the hand-wound 50/51 Blackguard PU's do a fantastic job of letting this dynamic reach the speaker unbridled!
