Fender’s Research Special Division (RSD) team knows no boundaries when developing new components for Fender guitars and basses.

Based at the Fender Custom Shop, the RSD team is not confined to the norm or “What we’ve always done.” Instead, the team thinks in terms of “What if?” and “Why can’t we?” The intent is to reach new heights of creativity with totally new designs that will improve musical instrument performance.

Now, two revolutionary RSD components—the RSD Telecaster® bridge and the RSD High-Mass bass bridge—are available for Custom Shop Pro instruments. They can also be ordered for new one-off Custom Shop models.
