The Fender Custom Shop 1952 Heavy Relic® Telecaster® is an authentic evocation of Fender's first workhorse guitar, along with some upgraded features for modern playability. Its ash body comes in Two-Color Sunburst, Black or Nocaster Blonde Heavy Relic lacquer finishes. Time-honored Telecaster snap comes from dual Nocaster pickups with three-way switching and Fender’s Greasebucket™ tone circuit, which rolls off highs without reducing gain.
