The Closest You May Get to an Original 1959 Tele
The Fender Custom Shop 1959 Journeyman Relic Telecaster solidbody electric guitar sports a very special configuration from late 1959. About that time, Fender started using rosewood fretboards on the Tele, transitioning the logo, and changing the dot spacing on the fretboard. The 1959 Journeyman Relic Telecaster nails the specs, tone, and feel of the late '50s. And the Journeyman Relic lacquer finish offers a great "played but not abused" look to the guitar. Whether you're a collector or simply love vintage character, the Fender Custom Shop 1959 Journeyman Relic Telecaster is a great addition to any guitar collection.

Fender Custom Shop 1959 Journeyman Relic Telecaster Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Hand-wound pickups give you '50s chime
Quartersawn neck gives you exceptional stability and playability
Journeyman Relic finish adds character to your axe
Hand-wound pickups give you '50s chime
One of the most important features to the authenticity of a vintage-styled Tele is the pickups. With the Custom Shop 1959 Journeyman Relic Telecaster, you get a set of pickups hand-wound to the same spec as the 1958 classics. Though there are hundreds of variations out there, there's truly nothing like the sparkle and chime you hear when playing through genuine vintage Telecaster pickups.

Quartersawn neck gives you exceptional stability and playability
The neck is one of the most important aspects of any instrument, which is why this Fender Custom Shop 1959 Journeyman Relic Telecaster solidbody electric guitar features a quartersawn maple neck. Besides looking good, the straight grain of quartersawn necks is about 50% more stable than plain-sawn necks, and less likely to warp, twist, or shrink. You'll also love the playability and feel of this 1959 Journeyman Relic Telecaster. You'll appreciate the vintage 9.5" radiused rosewood fingerboard that keeps things nice and comfortable for natural, relaxed fretwork.

Journeyman Relic finish adds character to your axe
If you want your guitar to look and feel broken in, you'll love the Journeyman Relic finish on this Fender Custom Shop 1959 Journeyman Relic Telecaster. Although it looks as though it has been a well-cared-for, albeit well-loved, member of your guitar collection for years, this Tele nonetheless projects an aura of distinct modernism. It feels aged, but without the heavy wear and tear. I am consistently impressed by how well Fender's Relic guitars play.
