Fender '71 Reissue Tele, made in Japan 2010/11, gold burst finish.  At first glance, this appears to be a regular 2-tone-sunburst, but it doesn't take long to go 'aaaaah... wow that's different!' The finish is a metallic gold with a subtle sparkle to it, but with the ash body still showing through in all it's glory. It really does look incredible! For a Tele that's described as 'gold burst, gold hardware', it's got a certain subtle classiness that defies the name tag. The next thing to mention is the bridge: the Babicz Tele bridge allows a whole lot more contact between string and saddle. The design offers enhanced sustain, tone, tuning stability and more precise and stable adjustments; if you're not a fan of the the 3-saddle standard Tele bridge, you'll love this. The slim 70s neck features the less-common Rosewood board option; it feels great in the hands and lends a little warmth. The classic Tele-twang is all there, but with a nicely balanced midrange and some booming bass to match... it sounds excellent. The finish is original to the best of our knowledge, so this is certainly a rare bird. We all need a little luxury, right?
