2010/11 Fender Japan Telecaster 

TL62-US Pickups



An Alder body, aged neck & factory fitted US pickups on this superb Telecaster

Another beauty from Fender Japan, this '62 reissue Telecaster will surely not be around for long. Finished in 3 tone sunburst, the guitar is practically unmarked. There are a few minor scratches 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 upgrade

Hard Case:

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 but 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 and usually they come with Japanese pickups & no hardcase. I found a few '62 Customs but they were priced at nearly £900!
