2022 Fender Made in Japan Traditional Series 60s Telecaster with Bigsby. Vintage White & new Hard Case



£799.00 + shipping






Oh my, what a beauty this is! This 2022 Telecaster is from Fender Japan's "Traditional Series" and is finished in Vintage White.

This is one of a factory short run or "FSR" of guitars with a factory fitted Bigsby tremolo. Fender say that only 30 of these were allocated to the UK so as this is imported, I suppose that makes this one number 31 :)

With its Alder body finished in Vintage White, Maple neck & Rosewood fingerboard & Mint Green scratchplate, it really is a beautiful thing! It also features the 60's Logo on the headstock. It has been barely used. I had a good look but can't find any other similar guitars for sale in the UK

The condition of the guitar is excellent too with no marks, chips or dents that I can find. The frets have no visible wear & the guitar is an absolute pleasure to play.

Here's some blurb from Fender:

All in all it's an excellent guitar from Fender in Japan that you probably won't find here in the UK​

Hard Case


As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a new black hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit.  Alternatively, if you are collecting the guitar and, like some buyers have cases coming out of their ears, that's no problem, I'll adjust the price (usually around a £50 discount) and I can usually find you an old gigbag to take the guitar away in. The only hard and fast rule I have is that I won't ship a guitar in a gigbag

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.

Or, you can buy quickly and safely using the PayPal "buy now" button and I will ship to most UK addresses the next working day. Highlands and Islands can be slightly dearer but I'll keep the cost as low as I can.

I can accept credit card payments by phone and will also offer a small discount to purchasers using bank transfer payments.

Overseas customers are very welcome but please email me first for shipping quotes.
