Forged by the clever gentlemen of the Fender Custom Shop, this '59 Journeyman Tele is the stuff of dreams. It has been perfectly crafted and beautifully relic’d. It recalls all of the tone and mojo of those early period Telecasters without the voluminous price tag.
There are no issues with this guitar. There are no dents, scratches, wear, etc other than its relic job done by Fender of course. It is nicely set up with a medium low action, plays great in all positions and sounds like a vintage Tele should – lots of twang & bark from the bridge pickup, sweet jangle from the middle position and a full, woody sounding neck pickup to round out all the tonal options you could want.
Comes in its original tweed hardshell case along with all the case candy and Certificate of Authenticity.
