Here is a Fender Custom Shop La Cabronita Telecaster Relic in Shoreline Gold! Includes the original hardshell case, CoA and hang tag. This model was introduced in 2009, and this one was built at the end of 2008, making it a super early production example! Fender Custom Shop guitars didn't come with floor travellers during this time, so that's why one isn't included. This guitar is set up with low, comfortable action, plays great, and appears to be all original! The neck and frets feel amazing, and TV Jones always sound fantastic in a Tele. They really give you a punchy, crystal clear hi-fi sound. There is a great video on YouTube of Mike Eldred (from the Fender Custom Shop) going over this model in great detail, so check that out if you haven't yet. Here are some highlights:

- 7.3 lb.
- Alder body, medium-chunky maple neck w/ medium-jumbo frets.
- 9.5" fretboard radius. Neck depth measurements of .89" and .96" at the 1st and 12th frets.
- TV Jones "TV Classic" pickups.
- Master Volume control with push-in S1 switch (Mike Eldred does a great job explaining how this works). The S1 switch applies a fixed tone for each pickup when you have the switch engaged. So, essentially, you have two different tonal options/voicings for each pickup instead of the typical Master Tone control.

Condition: This guitar is in excellent condition. Everything functions as it should with no issues. The frets show some very light wear throughout, but are in fantastic shape and show nearly factory height. No divots, dents or anything that really affects playability, in my opinion. The crowns look and feel great, and the fret ends are smooth and nicely rounded. As for the rest of the guitar, it doesn't look like there is much play wear (if any at all) past the factory relic/aging. Fender didn't always have categories for the level of relic (Journeyman, Heavy, etc.) like they do now, but I'd say it's aged just a bit more than the current Journeyman level relic. Light-medium. Some light scuffs, nicks and indentations/impressions, a little bit of wear on the fretboard and the lacquer on the back of neck worn in very slightly, etc. The photos tell the story here. It looks fantastic, and I'm always really impressed with how they aged the guitars during this era.
