2004/6 Fender Japan Telecaster
TL52-88 TX VNT & new Tweed Hard Case
An Ash body, aged neck & factory fitted US Texas Special pickups on this superb Telecaster
This is the third '52 reissue with Texas specials i have imported & they have all been great. Fender Japan do a really good job of recreating an accurate replica of an early 50's Tele right down to using all slotted screws. Great attention to detail, this guitar is lightweight & looks and sounds fantastic. A plain black case didn't do it justice so I have included a 50's style tweed hard case with this guitar
Another beauty from Fender Japan, this '52 reissue Telecaster will surely not be around for long. Finished in vintage natural, the guitar is in great condition. There are a few minor marks & nicks around the edges and some playing marks on the pickguard but that is about it. The factory fitted cloth wired USA pickups are a fabulous feature

As stated many times, due to courier damage, all my guitars are shipped in hard cases (usually new) this one being a tweed one. I do have a plain black option and these are a little cheaper. If you prefer that, please email me for details. If you are collecting, I'm happy to knock off the price of the case (About £30) & I may even have an old gig bag you can have to take it away in
So to sum up, a nicely aged guitar from Fender Japan. This model is very difficult to find here in the UK and usually they come with Japanese pickups & no hardcase. I found a few '62 Customs but they were priced at nearly £900! A USA 52 Reissue is around £1400 !
