At the beginning of the 1960s, Fender had established itself as an important brand on the guitar market. The ingenious idea of the name giver Leo Fender to construct electric guitars from solid wood enjoyed increasing popularity among musicians of that time. Robust against weather influences and the dangers of hard touring life, uncomplicated in handling and the cosy behaviour regarding unpleasant feedback with increasing amplifier power made many guitarists turn to the initially ridiculed board guitars.
Fender's Strats and Teles from the early 60s are today considered the best that came out of the Californian factory. Five-figure resale prices are not uncommon. For decades, Fender's Custumshop has made it its business to produce replicas of the old originals that certainly don't need to shy away from comparison.
The model at hand knows how to please with a lively attack with a creamy finish, a sound that is passed on to the amp by the pickup pair with a slight midrange emphasis. The neck is slimmer than on the 50s models and the rosewood fingerboard does the rest for a pleasant playing feel.
The Custom Shop wouldn't be the Custom Shop if it didn't also produce variations to meet special tastes. The Champagne-Sparkle finish exudes its own charm and the Relic treatment can only be described as successful. The 61 Tele is an attractive stage guitar and a professional tool for the studio in equal measure.
