Limited Edition Series by Fender

Each Custom Shop Limited Edition guitar is only available for a short time, which makes it eminently collectible while also adding to its investment value. Crafted with many features normally reserved only for select artists and master-built instruments, these instruments are exactly what their name says - highly anticipated limited edition models.

For 2015, the Custom Shop proudly introduced an expanded selection of premium ''relic'' finishes that have been designed to replicate the worn-in vibe of a genuine vintage instrument. The Relic finish delivers authentic worn-in wear of a guitar that has experienced many years of regular use. Each one is specially devised to capture the authenticity of original-era Fender, with unparalleled breathability and resonance.
