2004/5 Fender Japan TC-72 Telecaster  Black

with new Hard Case



The TC-72 from Fender Japan is always popular & I have had many on this site, all imported from Japan. You can buy a MIM Fender TC-72 but in my opinion (& many others) the Japanese model is just better. Better finished & a better player.

This particular guitar is in superb condition despite being over 10 years old. It is completely original & has been well cared for. Excellent frets with little wear & no indents, the only real marks showing that it is used are on the pickguard. There are a few very minor marks around the body but i would give it a 9.5/10 for overall condition. It's hard to find these guitars outside of Japan.

The guitar looks great & the build quality is as you would expect. What more can I say.

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 £10). 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 superb Fender TC-72 Deluxe from Fender Japan. This model is near impossible to find here in the UK. 

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 easily and safely using the Paypal "buy now" button. Don't forget to select the right option using the drop down menu on price, i.e. Collection, UK shipping or EU shipping. If in doubt, please email me first as Highlands & Islands can sometimes be a little dearer for shipping
