Fender Japan TC-72 Blonde Translucent 2010/11 & New Hard Case
This is the first Telecaster Custom '72 in Blonde I have found in Japan in 3 over years! Every other TC-72 guitar has been black. This translucent blonde is an original colour but you just never see it. It really makes this guitar stand out. If you check out the gallery photos you can see the grain of the Ash showing through nicely. TC-72's tend to be really popular & I can't see this guitar hanging around for long.
When this guitar came in it played well, had a nice straight neck and was all original but the body did have a few careless dents on it. Mostly on the bottom edge, but a few others on the top. None of these went through the lacquer or paintwork but they did require attention. I have filled, flatted & polished these areas. The guitar is much improved now but a couple still show and I have highlighted these in the photo gallery. Take a good look, the guitar still looks fab but it's not mint. The pickguard also has some scratching
The guitar still looks great & the build quality is as you would expect. It's a really good guitar. 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 in rare Blonde from Fender Japan. This model is near impossible to find here in the UK.
