Fender Custom Shop MVP Series 1952 Telecaster HB NOS Masterbuilt John Cruz
Fender Custom Shop 1952 Telecaster HB NOS
Master Vintage Player Series
John Cruz Masterbuilt!!!
Modified 1951 Nocaster Specs!
MVP Series Strats and Teles are the Ultimate electric guitars
The Vintage Fender Telecaster- REDEFINED! This 50s Tele NOS is part of the Master Vintage Player 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 special NOS finish package that includes a Gun Stock Oil neck finish for the natural feel of bare wood as well as a thin, hard, Nitrocellulose Lacquer finish on the body that allows the instrument to breath and age naturally for the best tone! It was also Custom Ordered with some killer custom upgrades- including a Gatton bridge saddles which retain a the stock look but intonate better, as well as modern wiring for maximum tone and a Seymour Duncan humbucker in the neck position for a very "Keith Richards" vibe! Very Cool / Very Keef Indeed!
