NAMM 2016: Fender Custom Shop Offer Up 1950s and 1960s Relic, Heavy Relic and American Custom Guitars

Heavy Relic Mischief Maker, Blue/Sunburst
Heavy Relic Mischief Maker, Blue/Sunburst
Fender Custom Shop has pulled out all the stops for 2016 with an array of top-drawer classics from the limited 1956 relic strat in faded sonic blue, the 1967 closet classic smugglers tele in Blonde to the 1958 Closet jazzmaster in a faded 2-colour sunburst.

Each boast their own unique qualities - The smugglers tele has a one-piece maple neck and cavities around the custom hand-wound neck pickup for a distinctive finish.

The 1958 jazzmaster features a one-ply gold anodized aluminium pickguard with a 3-position blade that provides modern tonal versatility through its resonant ash-wood body.

Another model which also truly catches the eye is the limited heavy relic mischief maker, pictured left, which takes on a predominantly blue finish with sunburst undertones in the relic'd areas of the guitar.

Fender Custom Shop electric guitars are the peak of modern guitar craftsmanship and tone. All Fender Custom Shop guitars are handmade by skilled craftsmen at the Custom Shop dream factory in Corona, California.

The full Fender custom shop range can be found, here.
