OVERVIEW

Another masterpiece from one of the Fender Custom Shop's most respected Masterbuilders.

Greg Fessler has become one of the most-respected Masterbuilders at the Fender Custom Shop, and this Tele Thinline is a great example of why. Featuring the Relic version of a classic Candy Apple Red finish, the semi-hollow alder body is meticulously crafted and beautifully sonorous. A pair of Seymour Duncan's P-90 single-coil pickups add punch and warmth, and the hand-carved, quartersawn maple neck and rosewood fingerboard are an effortless foundation for your musical imagination.

Becoming a Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilder isn't a easy path. Beyond complete mastery of traditional and modern luthiery skills, a builder must have an instinct for perfection and an imagination to see and hear the guitar in the hands of great players. Even experienced luthiers coming to Fender must serve a years-long apprenticeship before they can finally be held worthy of the title "Masterbuilder."
