    Comments about Fender Custom Shop 1955 Journeyman Relic Telecaster - Custom Built - NAMM Limited Edition:

    This guitar looks just like my 65 Tele that I sold years ago. I love the thick baseball bat neck. Didn't think I would but I will not own any other neck in the future. The Sound is fantastic. Tone is great. I put on compensated saddles but other than that I will not modify this guitar. The relic is light and not over the top. Real mojo. I will only add to it the "honest way" with time. Pricey? Yep. But I would buy again. Treat yourself! Buy one!
