2019 Fender Japan Hybrid II 60's Telecaster OTM & New Hard Case



£769.00



JAPAN IMPORT


Here's a very lovely Telecaster from Fender Japan. This model, Fender Japan call the Hybrid II 60's Telecaster. They claim to be mixing the old with the new which kind of covers it. 


So, traditional features are a solid Alder body, Maple neck with 21 frets, Fender USA '58 vintage pickups, a traditional style headstock & 60's Fender logo & a vintage ashtray style bridge with Brass saddles. 


Modern features include a 9.5" radius fretboard, locking tuners, ocean turquoise metallic finish & 4 way switching on the pickups. The additional position puts the pickups in series. Especially useful for soloing as it gives a boost.


This particular guitar was made in 2019 & is in excellent condition with the only marks being on the rear edge by the bottom strap button. Please see the gallery photos. They are very minor.

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 (extra £12). 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

If you are further interested in this guitar, you can either email me with any queries & I'll do my best to get back to you within 24 hours.
