2007-2010 Fender Japan TL-62 US Telecaster Lake Placid Blue & New Hard Case



This 2007-2010 guitar is a beauty and in a colour you don't see very often. With the 3 ply black pickguard, it really does look the business! It gets my vote anyway!

The guitar features an Alder body, Aged Maple neck with Rosewood fretboard and has a set of Factory fitted USA Fender vintage pickups
 The condition of the guitar is very good for a 15 year old guitar as the photos in the gallery show. It plays really nicely and is completely original. There are a couple of tiny dents on the side & there was one on the top which I repaired. These are shown in the gallery.

Fret condition is excellent with no indents & the neck is straight. This lake placid blue finish is one I haven't seen before on a '62 Telecaster but is very striking & I don't think this guitar will be around for very long

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.  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.
