So Fender announced these models for 2018, but finally only displayed them at the NAMM in 2019 and started to produce them after the NAMM’s orders. Here we got the first one to reach Switzerland, built in May 2019. Combining authentic Fender feel with a favorite player’s modification, the Limited Edition ’51 HS Tele Relic adds fat, high output sound to the traditional twang of a Tele. The hand-wound ’50-’51 “Crushed” Blackguard single-coil bridge pickup is joined by a Seymour Duncan® Seth Lover SH-55 humbucking neck pickup for a one-two punch of tone.

Fender customized a dual-stack HS Tele wiring to create the perfect sonic balance between the two, incorporating 250k/500k potentiometers on the volume and tone controls to ensure compatibility. The two-piece off-center ash body wears a Relic flashcoat lacquer finish, giving it the look and feel of a well-loved instrument that’s seen many a stage and tour bus. Sporting a dark tinted Relic flashcoat lacquer finish, the riftsawn maple neck sports a “10/56 V”-shaped profile that’s ideal for all playing styles. For ultimate comfort and playability, we topped the neck with a 7.25”-9.5” compound-radius fingerboard and 21 50085 medium-vintage frets. The vintage-style Nocaster bridge features compensated brass saddles for authentic Fender tone and superior intonation.

Other features include a 3-way pickup switch, single-ply Black phenolic pickguard, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and round string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
