2017 Fender Made in Japan Traditional Series 70s Telecaster Natural finish & new Hard Case

£749.00 + shipping







This 2017 Telecaster is from Fender Japan's "Traditional Series" and has a beautiful natural finish with a white 3 ply pickguard.


This guitar looks to have been little used and I can't find any dents or scratches other than light playing marks on the pickguard


With a nicely balanced Ash body finished in Natural gloss, Maple neck & fingerboard, it really is a beautiful thing! It also features the 70's Logo on the headstock. It has been little used. I had a good look but can't find any other similar guitars for sale


The condition of the guitar is excellent too. The frets have no visible wear & the guitar is an absolute pleasure to play.

Here's some blurb from Fender:

Made in Japan Traditional Series


Made in Japan Traditional series derived by combining the aesthetics of traditional Fender musical instrument production with the sophisticated craftsmanship of Japan. Fender's orthodox DNA is revived with reliable Made in Japan quality. Made in Japan Traditional '70s Telecaster® has a gloss finish Ash body. A 9.5-inch radius "U" shaped maple neck with 21 vintage-style frets provides a classic performance that is unique to the Traditional series. A vintage-style Tele® bridge with three threaded steel saddles, and an original pick-up selected for the Traditional series, delivers a realistic, musical vintage tone. The narrowly designed nut width makes it easy for Japanese players to play. Solid guitar craftsmanship and flexible answers to player needs are reflected in this series.

Thomann Rectangular Hard Case

All in all it's an excellent guitar from Fender in Japan that you probably won't find here in the UK​


Hard Case Policy


As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a new black hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit. This case is a nice new fitted one from Thomann in Germany.  Alternatively, if you are collecting the guitar and, like some buyers have cases coming out of their ears, that's no problem, I'll adjust the price (usually around a £50 discount) and I can usually find you an old gigbag to take the guitar away in. The only hard and fast rule I have is that I won't ship a guitar in a gigbag​.


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 quickly and safely using the PayPal "buy now" button and I will ship to most UK addresses the next working day. Highlands and Islands can be slightly dearer but I'll keep the cost as low as I can.

I can accept credit card payments by phone and will also offer a small discount to purchasers using bank transfer payments.

Overseas customers are very welcome but please email me first for shipping quotes.
