Information:

Brand new for 2019, this Limited Edition 2019 Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition 1951 Heavy Relic HS Telecaster in Faded Aged ocaster Blonde is handcrafted by Fender’s elite Custom Shop luthiers. This axe is equipped with a neck humbucker and hand-wound single-coil Tele bridge pickup that deliver a humongous range of incredible tone. Fender’s elite luthiers produce outstanding instruments with premium features and appointments. Judging from how incredible this ’51 Heavy Relic Tele plays and sounds, we’ll be fans for a long time to come. And so will you.

The ’51 Heavy Relic HS Tele is loaded for bear. The throaty Seymour Duncan SH-55 Seth Lover humbucker in the neck position serves up the tone you need for everything from warm, mellow jazz chords to thick syrupy leads, while the hand-wound Crushed Blackguard Tele single-coil at the bridge delivers visceral crunch and legendary twangy Tele bite. Many top session guitarists in the ’50s and ’60s swapped out the stock Tele single-coil neck pickup for a humbucker because it gave them the tonal versatility they needed for cross-genre session work. With the ’51 Heavy Relic HS Tele, the Custom Shop has done the work for you. This axe is a tone monster.

Before you ever plug the guitar in, the Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition 1951 Heavy Relic Telecaster sings with a resonance and clarity that is hard to find in lesser instruments. Its carefully selected 2-piece ash body is joined to a quartersawn flame maple neck. Cut radially, quartersawn necks are ultra-stable, with thinner grain that is less susceptible to warping and twisting than flat-sawn neck blanks. The result is a neck that is impervious to changes in temperature and humidity.
