    Hey guys,
    I've been wanting to get a relic tele, and I'm going through color options and can't really find what I'm looking for. I was wondering if any of you guys have a pic of your strat or tele with a brown body. I'm thinking maybe a tele with a brown body with a cream or off white pickguard. thanks!

    If you're looking for a Relic Tele, that typically implies one that would be done in historically accurate colors of the 50's and 60's. That lovely underwear-stain brown didn't come around much till the early 70's. Last I checked, Fender was doing reissues of the brown tele customs like pictured above, but not Custom Shop relics to my knowledge.

    I have a bunch of brown guitars in my website gallery, but they're mostly pickguard-free.
