2010 Fender Japan Telecaster TL-STD
Blonde with new Hard Case
A no-frills top loading Telecaster from Fender Japan. Unusual to find but a good looker and great to play. It has all the Tele twang you would expect but this guitar is blemish free
This guitar has been little used since new & is in nice condition. The body finish is a translucent yellowy blonde which really shows the grain through.
The neck is unusually bare so if you hate lacquered necks, it's ideal for you. The guitar has a top loading bridge with 6 saddles making intonation more accurate & string changing much quicker. Some people prefer the thru body stringing but I have to say, this plays and sounds really nice and I noticed no tonal difference.
The "no frills" model also means that the guitar is lower priced than all my other telecasters. With the addition of a brand new case, that makes it a very good deal on yet another guitar that you can't get in the UK unless you import it

As stated many times, due to courier damage, all my guitars are shipped in hard cases (usually new) this one being a plain black one. I do have a tweed option and these are a little dearer. 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.
