2004/5 Fender Japan TL52-70US Telecaster Vintage Natural & New Hard Case



Made in 2004/5 this '52 Reissue Telecaster is in great condition. With it's Ash body and with a set of factory fitted US pickups it ticks all the right boxes. Other than a few minor nicks which are actually too small to show up in the photos it is in excellent condition with little wear on the frets. The guitar is  all original  with no modifications. There have been a couple of more recent '52 reissue from Fender Japan with slight differences. Brass barrel saddles & brass slotted screws these things can all be changed at low cost

Restrung & set up the guitar plays & sounds great!

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

So to sum up, a superb Fender 52 Reissue Special Edition Telecaster from Fender Japan. This model is near impossible to find here in the UK unless you import it.

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.
