Here's something you don't see every day - A Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition 1956 Telecaster Journeyman Relic in a gorgeous Faded Aged Sherwood Green Metallic nitro finish.

We've had this stashed away for a while...We popped it aside for a good customer of ours (which we almost never do) and when he never went ahead with the purchase, it was basically forgotten about and sat boxed up in our warehouse waiting for us to notice!

This guitar is really something special - It features a singing, lightweight (but not too light!) genuine swamp Ash body that just exhibits all the best resonant characteristics you'd expect from premium quality Ash.

It's loaded with hand-wound Fender Custom Shop '55/'56 Tele pickups that have a real open and articulate mid-'50s voice and they're wired in via Fender's now quite sought-after 'Fat '50s' style wiring.

The gorgeous riftsawn Maple nack is carved with Fender's popular 10/56 V back shape while the fingerboard features a 9.5" radius, fitted with narrow-tall fretwire and a bone nut.

This hairloom-quality instrument ships in a genuine Fender G&G hardcase and includes a Fender Custom Shop leather strap and certificate of authenticity.
