Just in at Diablo Guitars is this stunning ’52 Telecaster Time Machine Edition… .

Get back to the age of the original workhorse guitar with the Fender Custom Shop 1952 Time Machine Relic Telecaster in Nocaster Blonde.  It sports a hand-selected, nitro-finished ash body, a satisfying Nocaster 52 U profile neck with a modern 9.5″ radius and 6105 frets, a vintage bridge with brass saddles, fat 50’s Tele wiring, and Custom Shop hand wound 51 Nocaster pickups. 

With stunning vintage visuals, optimized playability, and perfectly tweaked Tele twang, this Custom Shop ’52 Telecaster is the genuine article. If you like meaty necks and Tele twang, with a heavily worn look & feel, this the guitar for you. 

Our 52 Telecaster comes to us in dead mint condition. It was unsold B stock from a previous Fender dealer. The guitar has been freshly set up with .10-.46 strings in standard tuning and feels and plays every ounce as good as it looks. Ships in original Fender case and inlcudes all case candy, hang tags and COA.
