Close. Glendale cold steel. And they are awesome.
My 2015 CS 1963 Aged Vintage White JOURNEYMAN Relic
My 63 CS Surf Green over sunburst - had it forever.
Very nice but.... surely, a '67?
I thought it was a 63 but I bow to your better knowlege - I've had it probably 10 years,so I claim old age and poor memory
Yup, logo makes it a 67, not 63. And, as you said, it's a beauty.
New guitar day, I did not realize this was a 2016,
playing for a couple of hours, I cannot believe how good this is 6 lbs. 13 oz. sustains and vibrates forever superbly crafted instrument, perfect amount of ultrathin Nitro worn smooth neck, the tone is so intricate your fingers can coax so many nuances from the string, I'll have to see how I feel over the next few weeks, initial impression is might be the best guitar I've ever played.
63 relic just love the double binding.
Nice and banged up ultrathin paint job.
I won't buy a guitar without jumbo frets absolute requirement
These threaded steel barrels sound amazing.
Check out all the micro cracked finish.
The neck provide so much tonal sophistication with the missing finish
Wow thank you Fender custom shop
That’s a spectacular example. Love it. Congratulations! Are they the gray bottom 64 pickups?
No I researched quite deeply, I definitely wanted slightly brighter EQ and just a little bit more dirt. After watching 100 videos comparing all the vintage pickups I specifically went after the twisted tele set.
So this has a twisted tele neck and a twisted tele bridge.
This highly detailed description of how the pickups were designed by Mike Eldred from the Fender custom shop, totally convinced me they were perfect.
The guys in the custom shop actually use these.
Just perfect for me so I hunted down only the guitars with twisted tele pickup set.
I like a little extra dirt, and little extra heat..
Clean doesn't seem to get it done.
These are not over-the-top at all extremely flexible cover so much territory.
These are great. I've always liked the double bound solid colors. The relics are very cool. I have a CS 61 Strat relic which is probably my best sounding guitar with a neck like "buttah".
I hope more people post some picks.
I have solid double bound ... But it's a '66, so no deal
Here are a couple of quick pics of a few of mine.....
This is my 2000 Fender Custom Shop ‘63 Telecaster NOS in Lake Placid Blue. It’s actually on consignment at Gruhn Guitars. I’m going to miss it but I’m very happy with the ‘73 Telecaster I just acquired.
Sweet. Someone is going to be a very happy chappie or chappess.
Incidentally did you replace the pickguard or specify it without a truss notch?
All very very much to my tastes... lovely!
rze99, I see that other '63s came with a notched pickguard but I don't believe this series came with one. Lookng at the build sheet from the Custom Shop, this guitar is from the "Time Machine" series, made between 1/1999 to 2/2010. I purchased it from the original owner in 2013 and he said it was all stock. I've seen others for sale from this series and none of them had a notched pick guard. There is one just like mine for sale on eBay right now for reference.
I see @Joe M all have a notch.So does mine (2015). I bet they just make it up as they go along!
speaking of pickguards I went and checked in one of my storage boxes remembering I have some extra pick guards laying around.
This one surprised me and how awesome it looks.
With a test fit to see the color matching.
Any opinions how this looks is it too fancy? I'm surprised at how the yellow cream binding and gold and black looks pretty perfect match. Am I wrong, is it sacrilege to change the white pick guard, seems easy to switch back when needed.
Seems kinda cool
