The Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition '55 Telecaster Journeyman Relic is a true masterpiece of sonic excellence and artistic design. Every Custom Shop guitar is a unique creation, and this Telecaster is no exception. With carefully chosen materials, impeccable craftsmanship, and attention to detail, this guitar is a true testament to the skill and passion of Fender's master craftsmen. 

The body of this Fender Custom Shop Telecaster is made from high-quality ash and is dressed in a Journeyman Relic Aged White Blonde finish.  Some to-the-wood dings, nicks, and some fine checking are scattered throughout the body for a worn-in, vintage character without feeling overdone. Additional '55-specific flourishes include a “lighter” blonde lacquer than seen on previous years and the switch to a white guard. 

The neck is crafted from AAA flamed maple, with a fat-but-friendly 1954 "U" profile that feels comfortable and familiar in the hand. The flame on the back of the neck is incredible and the finish has been worn down silky smooth from the 1st to 12th frets—not a typical feature on Journeyman relics, but wholly welcomed. The maple fingerboard has been treated to some more modern playability upgrades with a 9.5" radius and narrow-tall (6105) frets. 

The guitar features a pair of hand-wound 55/56 Telecaster pickups all wired together with Fender’s Fat ‘50s Tele wiring for rich, articulate Tele tones beefed up with hotter, modern output levels. The hardware boasts some very detail-oriented age as well with some hazing and oxidation even down to the individual screws. The controls include a 3-way blade switch, master volume, and tone, giving you complete control over your sound. 

This Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition '55 Telecaster Journeyman Relic is a stunning example of the commitment to quality and excellence that the Fender Custom Shop is renowned for. The perfect marriage of gorgeous vintage looks and style with exceptional playability and sound.
