2020 Vintage V75 Reissued Telecaster Laguna Blue & new Hard Case




£299.00




This rather lovely and very affordable Telecaster designed & built in China by the renowned guitar  designer Trevor Wilkinson really is a nice instrument with lots of great features that really push it up the scale to compete well with much more expensive guitars. It has an American Alder body, Maple neck & fingerboard, locking tuners and Wilkinson's own traditional single coil pickups. As well as this, it has through-body stringing and an ashtray style chrome bridge with the excellent Wilkinson compensated brass saddles for more accurate intonation. Finished in a lovely Laguna Blue & with an aged white 3 ply scratchplate it looks great and it plays very nicely too. I found the neck a little thicker than the equivalent Fender Japan & Tokai Telecasters but still very comfortable & I spent a very pleasant hour running it through it's paces before I started this listing.


This model is current & you can get them on line between around £370.00-£450.00 but this just comes with a thin gig bag. 


This guitar is in almost perfect condition with just some minor playing marks but no scratches or dents & the frets have no wear. It came in as a PX, the owner wishing to upgrade to a Fender Japan guitar

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 £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

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.
