OVERVIEW

Relic vibe with modern enhancements.

Layering favorite modifications on a classic platform, the Limited Edition '51 HS Tele adds a little fatback soul to the classic Telecaster twang. The hand-wound ’50-’51 “Crushed” Blackguard single-coil bridge pickup is joined by a Seymour Duncan® Seth Lover SH-55 humbucking neck pickup for a one-two punch of tone. The clever control arrangement uses stacked 250K/500K pots to make sure both single-coil and humbuckers are properly compatible. A compound radius fingerboard on the rift-sawn "V" maple neck is superbly comfortable with easy bending all the way up, and the Relic finish supplies the vibe of a well-loved, often-played favorite. Vintage=style hardware rounds out the picture for an instrument you'll always treasure.
