Fender Custom Shop Limited Run 1955 Telecaster Journeyman Relic 2019 Aged Firemist Gold – Mint Condition 9.9/10.

An absolutely gorgeous tele with a tasteful relic finish straight out of the Fender Custom shop. This one hasn’t got any signs of use and is pretty much as it left the shop. It even smells new! These particular guitars were a custom order limited Run for Chicago Music Exchange in the USA. Not many of these around, if any in the UK! A not too over the top relic with a very beautiful aged firemist gold finish weighing in at 7.5lb.

The guitar is beautifully resonant with great tone, featuring custom voiced pickups, a gorgeous 52 profile relic neck and ash body so you get that lovely “worn in” feel just like you’ve had it sat in the wardrobe all these years. The Ash body has very light nitrocellulose aged firemist gold finish, really allowing the wood to “breathe”. You can see the beautiful grain of the Ash underneath the paint, the more this guitar is played it’s only ever going to look even better!

The pickups are particularly unique on this model the “Chicago Special” Tele pickups are potted in shellac for open wide range frequency response with thinner 43 gauge enamel wire. This means that the Bridge pickup has a “hot and juicy” tone using AlNiCo 3 magnets combined with thinner 43 gauge enamel wire. With the neck pickup using wide diameter AlNiCo 5 magnets overwound with 43 gauge enamel wire for that high output, clarity, and punch. Really versatile and great sounding punchy pickups.

Heres what Chicago Music Exchange Say:

It is no secret that the Fender Custom Shop has been creating the best instruments since 1987. In keeping with the true spirit of Leo’s original vision of the company, each instrument is built with the highest level of care and excellence. Here at Chicago Music Exchange, we have collaborated with the best minds at Fender to build the best instruments from top to bottom, tirelessly going over each spec to ensure that we offer you the best of what Fender has to offer.

Featuring measurements and components we hand-selected from across history, our “Chicago Special” Fender Custom Shop guitars highlight important years in the development of core models like the Stratocaster, Telecaster and more. We capture the energy and essence of their respective eras with iconic fingerboard radii and period-correct plastics, matched headstocks and slab fingerboards, classic finishes and not-so-classic colorways. But that’s just the beginning of what makes our Fender Custom Shop guitars so special. We take customization a step further with rift sawn necks for added resonance and expanded control sets for tonal versatility, and every “Chicago Special” Fender Custom Shop guitar features our own custom Chicago Special pickups, designed in conjunction with Fender Custom Shop Vice President of Product Development Mike Lewis.
