For most of the '50s, the Telecaster's design remained elegant in its simplicity; an ash body, one-piece maple neck and two single-coil pickups. The '50s Telecaster Journeyman Relic adds some period-correct transitional elements to this time-honored design, including a faithful Journeyman Relic lacquer finish that grants it the look and smooth-playing feel of a well-loved guitar from the 1950's while wearing in a personal way. The pair of Hand-Wound '51 Nocaster and Texas Special pickups are packed with authentic Tele tone—snarling and twangy—and the bridge pickup's pole pieces are staggered to even out the inter-string response. Other signature aesthetic touches include a '51-'54 Tele bridge with brass saddles, 1-ply Parchment pickguard and one-piece tinted maple neck that's ideal for almost any playing style.

Other features include Modern Tele Wiring with Greasebucket for even thicker tone, a modern 9.5"-radius fingerboard with 21 6105 frets, 3-way pickup switch and bone nut. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
