Fender Custom Shop ’50s Twisted Tele LTD Light Relic Master-Built – #24/50
Hand built by Master Builder Yuriy Shishkov–a limited edition build, this one is number 24/50.
Shishkov oversaw the team-built ’50s Twisted Tele. He will create 50 very special Twisted Teles with his own hands, each one a masterpiece that reflects the knowledge and skill of its builder. Like the team-built model, the Master-Built version features a 2-piece premium ash body with a vintage white nitrocellulose lacquer finish given a light Relic treatment–the finish shows natural wear from years of light use, with a few nicks, worn finish, oxidized hardware, and aged plastic parts. The body is fitted with a C-shape flamed maple neck with a luxurious vintage tint and a 7-1/4″ radius maple fretboard. The pickups include a hot-rodded Twisted Tele single-coil neck position pickup and a ’63 Custom single-coil in the bridge position. For an especially distinctive touch, the guitar is fitted with a B-6 Bigsby vibrato tailpiece.
Comes with a custom hardshell case, strap, cable, and special Custom Shop certificate. Also includes a deluxe leather binder containing a bio of Master Builder Shishkov, reproductions of his notes made during the project, and a DVD interview discussing his inspirations and the challenges he met in building these instruments.
