Fender Custom Shop '63 Heavy Relic Tele

Here's a chance to own a highly collectible guitar. Hand-selected by zZounds at the invitation-only Fender Custom Shop event at 2018 NAMM, this instrument represents one of a very limited number ever made with this set of features. Perfect for players in search of superb tonal versatility, light weight and vintage worn-in feel, this Custom Shop guitar is a study in sonic contrast and balance, with built-in mojo and style to spare. Includes Certificate of Authenticity and deluxe hardshell case.

The Fender 2018 Custom Limited Edition 1963 Heavy Relic C/R Tele guitar is finished in Super Faded/Aged flash coat lacquer. The lightweight ash body has received a Heavy Relic treatment that shows natural wear and tear of years of heavy use, nicks, scratches, worn finish, rusty hardware and aged plastic parts. The '60's Style Oval "C"-shaped maple neck is quartersawn for strength and responsive tone with a round-laminated dark rosewood fretboard. The 9.5"-12" Compound Radius and 6105 frets assure easy play and deep bends without fretting out as you play up the neck. Other premium features include a Handwound Broadcaster Bridge Pickup, Handwound Twisted Tele Neck Pickup, 3-Ply Mint Green Pickguard, 3-Way Switch, Bone Nut, Deluxe Hardshell Case, Strap, and Certificate of Authenticity.

Each Custom Shop Limited Edition instrument is only available for a short time, which makes it eminently collectible and adds to its investment value. Crafted with many features reserved only for certain artists and masterbuilt instruments, they are just what the name says they are: highly anticipated limited edition models that go very quickly.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Fender products.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
