Fender Custom Shop Wildwood 10 1959 Telecaster – Heavy Relic
The Perfect 10
Years ago, we approached our friends at the Fender Custom Shop with a proposal: would they build us guitars that combined the mojo of a true-to-vintage reissue with modern handfeel and comfy modern ergonomics? They were enthused about the idea, and the Wildwood 10 was born. Thanks to the Custom Shop’s incredible craftsmanship and artistry, these guitars look gorgeous, sound killer, and play like butter.
Each of these Custom Shop creations features a thin fifties-style nitrocellulose finish, which allows the voice of the resonant hand-selected tonewoods to shine through. They also have hand-wound Custom Shop pickups that are sure to inspire you to reach new heights on your sonic journey. Wildwood 10s feel great in your hands, too. Their modern 10” radius is suitable for a wide variety of styles and techniques, and their 6105 narrow-tall frets allow you to expend less energy with your left hand, especially when bending strings. To top it all off, they come with a limited edition Dealer Select Wildwood 10 hardshell case and a certificate of authenticity.
By the tail-end of the 1950s, the Telecaster had cemented its place as an American icon. Ever the innovator, Leo Fender decided to tweak the already-legendary Tele tone formula by introducing a rosewood fretboard. This new tonewood's sweet, round-sounding attack provided a delightful new color for discerning players' palettes, and they took the musical world by storm. These Wildwood 10 1959 Telecasters capture the trailblazing magic of those original '59s by pairing resonant tonewoods with Custom Shop electronics and period-correct neck shapes. But, they also have modern 10" radii and narrow-tall 6105 frets, so they feel as good in your hands as any modern instrument. We have plenty of colors and finishes with varying levels of relic-ing, and several different neck profiles to choose from, so we invite you to take a gander at our selection of Wildwood 10 1959 Telecasters. We're sure you'll find a divine '59 that inspires you to reach new heights on your fretboard journey!
