Fender Custom Shop MVP Series 1952 Telecaster Heavy Relic Masterbuilt John Cruz
Fender Custom Shop 1952 Telecaster Heavy Relic
Master Vintage Player's Series - John Cruz Masterbuilt!!!
MVP Series Strats and Teles are the Ultimate Relic guitars
Stealth Middle Pickup!
The Vintage Fender Telecaster- REDEFINED! This 50s Tele Super Relic is part of the Master Vintage Players Series (MVP) Limited Edition run, built exclusively for Make'n Music in the Fender Custom Shop!!! These special instruments are custom designed to offer the Ultimate in Tone, Playability and Feel. Each guitar is hand-made to our specs in order to give the vibe and look of an actual vintage instrument, but with all the conveniences of a true modern player's piece.
While these Fender Custom Shop Master Vintage Player Series Strats and Teles may look and feel like actual vintage guitars, they play like a dream thanks to a Custom neck profile with 1&11/16" nut width, flatter 9.5" fingerboard radius and 6105 fret wire. Adjustments are a breeze too! The Truss Rod is accessible from the headstock, so you no longer have to remove the neck for a tweak.
This particular guitar is based on the Vintage 1951 Nocaster / 1952 Telecaster, but built to modified early 50s Tele specs with a very special hand-distressed, Heavy Relic finish package to replicate decades of road worn wear and tear! It was also Custom Ordered with some killer custom upgrades- including a STEALTH MIDDLE PICKUP for added tonal versatility. The hand-wound Twisted Tele neck pickup and Broadcaster bridge pickup in this guitar sound absolutely incredible as is, but use the S1 switch discreetly mounted in the volume knob to activate the custom hand-wound, RWRP middle pickup and you get another world of tonal options with less hum too! Very Cool Indeed!
