❌SOLD❌ Fender Limited 1961 Telecaster Relic Sherwood Green, 2022


Instrument Categories: , , ,

Here we have a 2022 Fender Limited 1961 Telecaster Relic in Sherwood Green from the Custom Shop in Corona, California.  As a 2022 Custom Shop Limited Edition model, it is out of production and has been superseded by this year’s crop of Limited Edition models.

This very cool Fender Limited 1961 Telecaster is in near original condition with virtually no additional wear to the original ‘relic’ treatment. It features a two-piece Alder body paired with a Oval ‘C’ profile Maple neck 9.5 inch radius Indian Rosewood fingerboard. The frets are narrow and high, not vintage style. Original Kluson style tuners are at the head with a ‘Gatton Relic’ style bridge at the body. A Twisted Tele neck pickup is at the neck position, and a Hand-Wound ‘OBG’ – Original Black Guard – pickup at the bridge.

The body finish is a nitrocellulose lacquer ‘Sherwood Green’ with a moderate Relic treatment. The neck has little finish past the headstock and heel, simulating years of play.

This Fender Limited 1961 Telecaster is sold with its excellent original 1961 style brown Tolex G&G hard shell case, containing the Custom Shop folder with the Certificate of Authenticity – which now has a date! – the build sheet and QC check cards.

Here’s the builder on the pickups used on the Fender Limited 1961 Telecaster:

“Plug the Limited-edition ’61 Telecaster Relic into your favorite tube amplifier, and the pickups will make quite the impression. In the neck position, a high-output Twisted Tele pickup practically rips through the speaker. Meanwhile, when you switch to the bridge, the Original Blackguard Tele pickup pumps out enough twang to tear the wallpaper off the walls. Both pickups were wound by hand in the Fender Custom Shop, adding another personalized touch and ensuring that each has its own distinctive voice.”
