Fender Japan TD-74 LTD Cherry 2008-2009 & New Hard Case



The TD-74 LTD from Fender Japan is a much sought after guitar.  With it's twin humbucker Telecaster body & large headstock "Strat" style neck it's a stunning looking guitar. This particular instrument has been held for a customer for some time but he was unable to complete the purchase so is now offered for sale on this website.

This guitar is finished in a translucent Cherry Red & is in excellent condition despite being over 10 years old. It is completely original & has been well cared for. Excellent frets with little wear & no indents. There were a couple of small dents that I had to repair. One was near the jack input and one on the back. These are both shown in the photos & the repair leaves them very difficult to spot. I would rate the guitar as 9/10. It's hard to find these guitars outside of Japan. Yes, I realise the price is higher than most Fender Japan guitars I have but whereas most Strats & Teles are around 50-60.000 Yen in Japan, these sell used for around 80,000 Yen

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 TD-74 LTD 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
