This could be the ultimate Fender Custom Shop Tele in our opinion, and one that is even more collectible now that master builder Ron Thorn is no longer with Fender – there won’t be any more of these! Beautiful fully roasted ’52 Relic Telecaster featuring a lightweight 1-piece Roasted Ash Body with a set of Handwound ’50-’51 Blackguard Tele pickups, an absolutely stunning 1-piece Roasted AAA Flame Maple neck with the period correct ’52 style ‘U’ neck shape and a modern 9.5″ Radius with 6105 frets. Finished in a unique relic package to give that authentic vintage guitar look and feel. This is a super premium quality instrument that cost over £7,000 new. The guitar is in perfect condition, along with its original case, certificate and shop floor traveller.
