Body and neck
The Custom Tele takes on a completely unique look in the Fender range. The uncommon resonant Mahogany body is topped with a stunning Flamed Maple. Unlike an ordinary Telecaster, this custom model is designed from the bottom up for power and precision, starting with warm, crisp woods.
You won’t be bogged down by vintage specs here. The matching Mahogany modern ‘C’ neck is built for speed. While the Indian Laurel fretboard is slightly flatter than the standard Fender radius, making it perfect for dexterous playing.
Equipped are two hot Seymour Duncan pickups. The Custom Tele has a ’59 in the neck and a Pearly Gates in the bridge. The Pearly Gates captures an extra hot P.A.F sound with a slightly boosted midrange – the complete opposite of a standard twangy Tele. Expect a serious gain output whilst holding plenty of focus.
The ’59 is an extremely versatile pickup. This is your more classic sounding humbucker for full range frequencies with a bright attack. But you’re not just limited there. This Tele has coil-splitting capabilities, so you’re able to get those vintage Fender single-coil tones with a pull of the tone knob.
There’s no three-saddle bridge here. It’s kitted out with a modern string-though hardtail that provides excellent stability and comfort for the picking hand. At the other end, the graphite nut reduces buzz for a seamless playing experience. The 22 jumbo frets makes the Custom Tele an excellent choice for lead playing.
