Fender Custom Shop Relic '53 Telecaster

Body Type:



53 Heavy Relic

String Configuration:


Welcome! To Bizarre Guitar Reno's Demos and Deals ebay store... This is a lightly demoed floor model... Save $300!

Two years after its 1951 debut, the Telecaster was an established success, prized for its sound and style and well on its way to stage and studio indispensability. Further, 1953 marked its final year as Fender’s sole solid-body electric Spanish guitar model.

The Custom Shop pays homage to Fender’s early-’50s workhorse guitar with the 1953 Heavy Relic Telecaster. Features include a lightweight ash body with a Nocaster® Blonde lacquer finish given a heavily worn “Heavy Relic” treatment, tinted one-piece maple neck with ’57 soft V shape, maple fingerboard with 9.5” radius and 6105 frets, vintage-design 1950s Telecaster pickups, three-way pickup switch with modern wiring, single-ply black Bakelite pickguard, vintage-style hardware, center pocket tweed case and certificate of authenticity.

This one weighs in at only 6lbs 14 oz!
