A classic Tele with a few unique tweaks, here is a Custom Shop '57 Telecaster with a roasted ash body and a roasted 3A flame maple neck. The roasting process gives the wood not only stability through different weather changes - the drying process reduces weight while also increasing resonance and overtones. Other features on this Tele include a comfortable Soft "V" neck profile, and a pair of H/W 55/56 Tele pickups.
Back in Summer of 2019, we were invited to visit the Fender Custom Shop in Corona, CA. after their Dealer Showcase Event in the deserts of Palm Springs. After touring the factory and talking shop with some of Fender's top Master Builders, Brett sat down in the design lab to create what would become Eddie's Guitars first exclusive Fender Custom Shop instruments.
