2004 Fender Japan TL-62 Telecaster Custom '62 Reissue Electric Guitar

Fender Japan gear has been hot for decades, now. This '04 Tele Custom is clear evidence of why. This is simply a killer guitar. It's got the old-style neck and feel, classic styling, great looks, and vintage tone. I mean -- you play it and it feels right at home.

This particular one is super-de-duper clean and looks like it could've just been hanging in a guitar shop for a couple months. It has only the very lightest scratching/usewear and it's completely original save the saddles (Gotoh "In-Tune" compensated ones -- an upgrade) and the string tree (a '50s-style one).

All I had to do to get it going spot-on was tweak the setup a bit.

Repairs included: a mild setup.

Condition notes: it's all-original save the string tree and saddles. Both are upgrades. The finish is clean throughout with only the most minor scratches here and there -- the "shop handling wear" stuff you can't even photograph. It's almost mint.

It comes with: a nice gigbag.
