2015 Fender 1963 Telecaster Journeyman Relic Aged Vintage White Custom Shop.

This one was a special build for a top dealer show, it sure is a beauty

Usually, I am no great fan of relic guitars but this one I could not resist.

Will be perfect with my 2 other blonds, 63 NOS and Avri 64

Family portrait tomorrow

Congrats on the new guitar. Looks great, probably feels great.

How does it sound to you? You didn't mention pickups?

Can't really tell from the photos, so the relicing/aging seems fairly light and not over obvious. I can see a few small dings, but no more than what could happen anyway - hope they didn't charge extra for that.

Hardly matters, fine looking guitar. Enjoy!

Thanks

Got a fantastic price including shipping with UPS from a dealer in Nevada, In Sweden this one cost a fortune.

Already check it up with Fender by mail and got the order sheet, attache a Pic.

It not much relic job done so it could be one of my ordinary gigging guitars, Weight 7lbs, and it sound fantastic.
The is setup almost perfect.

The P/U is AM VINT '64 TELE PICKUPS and they are great :)

Very cool...not too much relic job done which is good.Congratulations!!

I agree with sonny wolf (I mostly do).

The only thing I would change is the pickguard. I'd go for an all-white 1-ply. But that's just me. And Steve Cropper ... ;)

Yow, that's a beauty!

Those pickups are something special, IMO. The whole guitar screams perfection, to me.

Congratulations!
