Fender Custom Telecaster history. 

The Fender Custom telecaster is different from the Telecaster Custom in the way the it has other features. 2 different models.

In 1959 Fender came out with a new model – the Fender Custom Telecaster. If featured a double bound body. This year Fender also started to do slab-board fingerboards. Apart from the body binding there is no difference from a standard Telecaster. It´s all about the binding.
