Customs creates vintage looking and sounding instruments, without
vintage prices, using original factory Fender guitars and parts.
started making TimeWarp guitars and parts for the player who wanted a
vintage Fender instrument, not a licensed parts guitar that looked like a
Fender and didn't
want to drop 5k. They are amazing looking and sounding guitars that
give you everything you want in a vintage guitar but the price.
TW52 started life as a NOS 2016 factory Fender Road Worn 50s Tele, and
was transformed into an authentic looking and playing custom shop
quality '52 Telecaster through the TimeWarp process of aging and relic
work. It is incredibly realistic in its look, and the tone is pure
vintage thanks to the Seymour Duncan Antiquity pickups and a real 1950s
drop cap. The pickups, which are handwound, aged in their look and
tone, are $210.00 alone. This Fender guitar would cost $3,500 or more
if it came out of the Custom Shop, but not at Crosstown Customs'.
The work that went into it takes this guitar to a whole new level. The amount of checking and player wear makes it look truly authentic and is usually found only on a real 1950s model, or Masterbuilt guitars. The
Nitro on the body and neck is thin and allows the wood to resonate,
just like Leo wanted it, and will continue to age. It has the look,
feel and tone you want, without a vintage price tag.
Nitro neck was aged to look a true work horse, and the original decal
was aged to look like it is above the finish, just like the original.
The medium jumbo frets are mint, and it has a vintage 7.25" radius and a
fuller C profile and a 1.650" nut. Part of their TimeWarp process is
to remove the serial number and stamp it into the heel of the neck,
which adds to the aura and keeps the important serial number with your
Antiquity pickups are faithful reproductions of the iconic original and
have all the classic Tele twang you want from a vintage Tele that still
feels at home with today's music. There is full cloth wiring on the
CTS pots, as well as the real 1950s drop cap and a Switchcraft output
jack upgrade. But one of the best features is a period correct serial number stamped on the USA Fender Pat. Pend. bridge.
comes complete with a Fender G&G tweed case, as well as the case
candy, the boxes from the Seymour Duncan Antiquity pickups and a Fender
American Vintage Reissue leather strap.
While it's a relic, the guitar is new and was created to look this way. There are no issues, and it's better than the day it left the Fender factory. Model: TimeWarp 52 (TW52)SN: MX16771364Weight: 7 lbs, 12 oz
