2017 Fender Japan Traditional 70’s Telecaster Ice Blue Metallic

with new Hard Case


This guitar has now been sold


What a lovely guitar this is. The "Traditional 70s" range that Fender Japan brought out a couple of of years ago are superb with the usual attention to detail that you would expect from Fender Japan. With it's Ash body & Maple neck the guitar boasts a pair of Fender Vintage style pickups which give the guitar a true 70's look & it sounds great too!

This particular guitar is almost mint. Not a mark, scratch, dent or blemish could I find anywhere on it, just some playing marks. If you look at the photos the pickguard looks quite dull. That's because the protective film has never been removed. I'll leave that pleasure to the next owner! It's hard to find these guitars now as they all seem to have sold out on line. it seems that Fender Japan only seem to export a few and they seem to get snapped up pretty quickly

The guitar looks great & the build quality is as you would expect. What more can I say.

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 £10). 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 Telecaster from Fender Japan. A discontinued model in the UK & difficult to find
