Fender Custom '50s Thinline Tele Relic

Here's a chance to own a highly collectible guitar. Hand-selected by us 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 an engraved "Limited Edition" neck plate, Certificate of Authenticity and deluxe hardshell case.

The Telecaster is a legend for a reason. Its definitive sound has cut across every musical genre. The twang and the feel made the Tele a musical machine that's been cemented in history by some of the world's biggest artists. The lightweight Thinline body and Relic 'floral finishes' harken back to a time when the Tele became the favored guitar of stage heroes, while giving it an attitude all its own.

This guitar also features a stable quartersawn maple neck with '57-style "Soft V"-shaped profile, 9.5"-radius fingerboard, modern Tele wiring with Greasebucket tone circuit, vintage-correct Tele bridge with brass saddles, handwound Custom Shop Original Blackguard bridge pickup and Texas Special neck pickups, parchment pickguard and vintage-style tuners with the classic Fender logo. Familiar enough to latch on to and cool enough to fall in love with, this Telecaster includes a 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.

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.
