2017 Fender Japan Traditional 70s Telecaster Ash 3 Tone Sunburst & new Hard Case




This 2017 guitar is from Fender Japan's "Traditional Series" and is finished in striking 3 tone sunburst . With an Ash body, Maple neck & fingerboard, it really is a beautiful thing! It also features the 70's Logo on the headstock. It has been little used. This range were still available in the UK although in different finishes. They retailed at just under £1,000 and were sold with a thin gig bag.

The condition of the guitar is very good although I did have to repair two small dents on the front and one on the back. The camera won't pick them up and they are difficult to see with the naked eye as they have been filled smoothed & polished The frets have no visible wear & the guitar is a joy to play.

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
