2020 Fender Japan Traditional Series II Telecaster 70's Custom 3 Tone Sunburst & new Hard Case



This 2020 guitar is from Fender Japan's "Traditional Series" and is finished in striking 3 tone sunburst . With an Alder body, Maple neck & fingerboard, it really is a beautiful thing! It also features the 70's Logo on the headstock. It has been barely used. This range were available in the UK although in different finishes. The only colour I could find was a Seafoam Green. They retailed at over £1,000 and were sold with a thin gig bag.

Fender Japan did bring out a similar model a few years ago called the "TD-74" The guitar looks like a combination of a Custom 70s guitar body & a 70's Stratocaster neck. It features Fender's "wide Range" humbucker pickups.  It's a fantastic looking guitar and I can't see it being around for long!

The condition of the guitar is near mint with just some very light playing marks. The frets have no visible wear & the guitar is a joy to play. Please note that the film cover has never been removed from the scratchplate

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 £40) & I may even have an old gig bag you can have to take it away in
