1997-2000 Fender Japan TN70 MAHO Thinline & New Hard Case




£729.00




JAPAN IMPORT


This Fender Japan Thinline Telecaster is around 20 years old but  is in really good condition. It's a super lightweight guitar and tips the scales at just 2.99kg which is about 6.5lb in old money. When it came in, it just had two small chips in the lacquer, one on the lower edge and one on the lower horn. These have both been repaired and are now barely visible. They are polished & smooth to the touch. There is just a slight shade difference. Please check out the photos. There is also very slight evidence of buckle rash on the back if you hold it to the light but I am really being picky. This guitar is in excellent used condition.


Please check out the gallery photos. The first one is a picture from the Fender Japan catalogue showing variations and Specifications. I think that you can buy something similar to this as a "Made in Mexico" Fender but they are priced around £750 with a gig bag. My opinion (and a few others) is that the Japanese Fender is a much better built guitar

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. 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 really nice reissue from Fender Japan. This model is  difficult to find here in the UK unless you don't mind a Mexican one. 


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
