Lovies Guitars is Excited to offer up this 2018 Fender Custom Shop Vintage Collection Special Mod ’55 Telecaster Relic Inspired by Joe Bonamassa with a 3-Color Sunburst Finish! In 1955, it was exceptionally rare that a Telecaster was built with a sunburst finish. Two-tone sunburst had just been introduced in the prior year, and was primarily used on Strats. When an exceptional guitar like this finds its way to Guitar Center, a customer like Joe Bonamassa is top-of-mind. His legendary collection of Vintage and rare gear has grown to fill an entire museum experience, known as “Nerdville.”

“I look for the extraordinary in the sea of ordinary. I like things that are unique- whether they’re rare, really clean, really beat up … I’ll just get a text from Jack or Nick (Vintage Acquisition Manager) at GC and it’ll randomly be a Sunburst Telecaster from 1955.” Having helped get such a rare piece of history into Joe’s hands, we thought it would be amazing to work with Fender Custom Shop and Master Builder Yuriy Shiskov to bring to life some new guitars based on the original Sunburst ’55 Tele. “The Tele is in incredible condition for its age,” says Yuriy. “It’s got a nice uniform aging, and the wear is beautiful. It’s not been abused­—it looks like someone really took care of it.”

The Fender Custom Shop Vintage Collector Series Special Mod 1955 Relic Telecaster is inspired by Joe Bonamassa’s 1955 Tele and appointed with the same specs, but with a special twist of a 3-tone sunburst that was non-existent on Fender Telecasters of that era. This Custom-Built run is limited to only 40 instruments! MINT, Unplayed Condition, 10/10 NO Issues! ALL Original. NO Breaks, Cracks or Repairs! Includes an Original Hard Shell Case and a Free Sample of Fret-Not, our favorite fretboard cleaner out there, check it out at! SEE more pics!
