From playing bass with Buddy Holly in the late-'50s to writing and preforming with The Highwaymen well into the '90s, Waylon Jennings etched a legacy in music history unlike any other. The Outlaw Country pioneer was rarely seen without a Fender in hand - and more often than not, it was his prized, leather-clad 1954 Telecaster.

This is a one-time run that the Custom Shop is offering only to select Showcase dealers.  Each can only obtain one - which Truetone jumped on right away, so we're near the top of the list to get one of the first built.  This super collectible guitar is now available for pre-order and will start shipping in the 4th quarter of this year, continuing through next year.  Only 70 will be built for the whole world, and once they are gone, that will be it - this will not be repeated.

Custom Shop Masterbuilder David Brown partnered with the Jennings family to recreate Waylon's iconic Telecaster - detailing all the wear from decades of use. The 2-piece ash body is finished in period-correct Butterscotch Blonde before being wrapped in the distinctive, hand-tooled leather cover and paired with a 10/56 "V"-shaped, one-piece quartersawn maple neck. Custom Shop Hand-Wound '50/'51 Blackguard pickups provide unmistakable early-'50s Telecaster tones with clear, crisp highs with well-balanced midrange and low end.

The look of this guitar is like no other - it's truly unique, specific to the artist himself, who holds a unique place in music history.  It's instantly recognizable, and this tribute model is instantly collectible.

Additional features include: 7.25" Radius; 21 Vintage Upgrade (45085) Frets; Modern Telecaster Wiring with 3-Way Switch; '51-'54 Tele® Bridge with Brass Barrel Saddles; Schaller M6 Tuning Machines with Low E Banjo Tuner; Bone Nut; Single Disc String Tree.

The guitar comes with a Custom Western Tooled Case, Custom Tooled Leather Strap, and signed Certificate of Authenticity.  It's a proper fit for any serious collector or fan of Waylon Jennings, and a truly special guitar.
