2004-2005 Fender Japan TL52-80 SPL Telecaster Ash Vintage Natural & new Hard Case


This guitar is on hold awaiting payment



This 2004-2005 guitar is a mix of a 1952 & a 1980 Telecaster. A Dragster humbucker at the neck and a vintage style single coil at the bridge plus a six point modern bridge but a 7.25" radius fretboard. With an Ash body, Maple neck & fingerboard, it really is a beautiful thing! It also features the 50's Logo on the headstock. It has been little used.

The condition of the guitar is excellent. There are a few playing marks around the guitar & some tiny dents and minor scratches. The frets have minimal wear & the guitar is a joy to play.

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.


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
