2002-2004 Fender Japan TL-52 US Telecaster Ash White Blonde & new Hard Case
Here's a nice '52 reissue from Fender Japan in a classic white blonde finish that is translucent so you can see the Ash grain & this one has the benefit of factory fitted USA Fender pickups making it quite a bit more desirable than the standard '52RI . The guitar is in excellent condition for almost 20 years old with just a few small nicks around the edges and a dent on the bottom edge which I have filled, smoothed & polished as shown in the gallery photos. It's on the rear edge and is difficult to see. Any others are all so small, I haven't photographed them as they're really difficult to pick up. The guitar is also all original.
The guitar plays really nicely and the USA pickups take it to another level. True '52 reissues have slotted brass screws & brass barrels on the bridge. It would be an easy job to upgrade this & I believe Fender make a kit for it.

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.
