❌SOLD❌ Fender Custom Shop ’69 Stratocaster Relic White, 2006

❌SOLD❌ Fender Custom Shop '69 Stratocaster Relic White, 2006

Here we’re looking at a Fender Custom Shop ’69 Stratocaster in the Relic version, built during 2006 at the Fender plant in Corona, California. It’s in very good condition with only light wear – beyond the relic treatment! Closely following 1969 specs, the body is Alder and the neck is Maple. There’s no ‘skunk stripe’ on the back of the neck – the rolled-edge fingerboard is a piece of Maple, applied in the same way a Rosewood board would be, and the truss rod was installed from the front of the neck before the fingerboard was installed.

❌SOLD❌ Nash T-63 Relic T Style Guitar Vintage Burst, 2011

❌SOLD❌  Nash T-63 Relic T Style Guitar Vintage Burst, 2011

The Nash T-63 is an imagining of a 1963 T guitar that’s been heavily used over many years and showing significant finish relic wear. Built in the USA by Bill Nash in his shop in Washington state, Nash guitars offer many options including pickup types, finishes and binding. Here we’re looking at a Nash T-63 in a reliced vintage sunburst, built likely during 2011. This recalls one of the most successful and profound factory modifications of the original Telecaster, the introduction of the Rosewood fingerboard.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Precision Bass Sunburst, 1964

❌SOLD❌  Fender Precision Bass Sunburst, 1964

Introduced in 1954, the Fender Precision Bass was quickly adopted by bass players. It was an elegant solution to a few large problems related to the large size of an upright bass, its tendency to feed back as amplified volumes consistently rose, and the ease with which notes could be out of tune on a fretless fingerboard. The P Bass was compact, lightweight, durable and reliable, would not feed back, and would be precisely in tune with the rest of the band.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Custom Shop 1951 Telecaster Relic Blonde, 2016

❌SOLD❌ Fender Custom Shop 1951 Telecaster Relic Blonde, 2016

The Fender Custom Shop 1951 Telecaster Relic features a light-weight Ash body, and a full-U profile, one piece Maple neck. This neck design was one of Leo Fender’s breakthroughs. The finish reproduces the original nitrocellulose lacquer ‘blonde’, but with significant wear. Tuners are Kluson Deluxe style with metal buttons, as Fender continued to use for decades. The bridge offers three Brass saddles, and has the Patent Pending stamp, as many early 1950’s models did (until Fender ran out and had to re-order).
