2012 Fender Japan TL-71 Telecaster Ash 3 Tone Sunburst & new hard case

£699.00 + shipping






This 2012 guitar is  Fender Japan's 1971 Telecaster reissue and is finished in striking 3 tone sunburst . With an Ash body, Maple neck & fingerboard, it really is a classic 70's Tele and looks great.  It also features the 70's Logo on the headstock. 


The condition of the guitar is good but it does have some knocks and chips around the edges. The worst of these is on the back edge and is now repaired. There is also a dent on the bottom edge of the headstock which has also been repaired (see before/after pics in gallery) I have also taken some time to remove some of the scratching that was on the body & it looks ten times better now than when it came in. Having said this. The condition is consistent with a 10 year old guitar that has been played & not sat in its case.

The Ash body means you get a nice light, well balanced Telecaster. The frets have no visible wear & the guitar is a pleasure to play.
