The Vintage Fender Tele- REDEFINED! This 60 Telecaster Super Relic is part of the Master Vintage Players Series (MVP) Limited Edition run, Masterbuilt by John Cruz, 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.
This particular guitar is built to modified early 60s Tele specs and has a very special hand-dirstressed, Heavy Relic finish package to replicate decades of road worn wear and tear! It's pretty much the best sounding, feeling, playing Tele you could ever hold. The tone is incredible thanks to a pair of Hand-Wound Custom Shop pickups- Twisted Tele in the neck for a more clear, bell-like neck pickup tone (almost Strat-like) and a Texas Special in the Bridge to add a little beef where it's needed. The combination could not be more perfect.
The Fender Custom Shop Master Vintage Player Series Strats and Teles may look and feel like actual vintage guitars, but they play like a dream. Easier chording, faster leads and no fretting out when you go for the big bends thanks to the 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. These guitars also have an ultra-comfy, Custom Mid 60's C neck profile. At .850" - .950" it's a handful, but not obnoxious. Perfectly shaped to fit in any size hands.
John Cruz Master Built electric guitars are coveted for the incredible tone, playability and realistic vintage appearance. If you have been looking for a John Cruz Strat, don't miss this fantastic opportunity.
