Fender '62 Tele, lake placid blue, crafted in Japan 2004-05. Lake Placid is on of those finishes that we all wish we saw more often, it just looks so good. Combined with a mint guard and a lovely streaky rosewood board, this really does have an unassuming, classy appeal. Being a few models above the most basic CIJ Tele, this scores the 60s-correct decals and bridge, as well as an alder body and some USA pickups. The pickups are great; they're bright and sparkly with a clear, warm body and tight low-end, and being a vintage-style low-mid output pickup, they get along well with a lot of amps and pedals. The light body and slim neck are easy to get along with; you're never fighting the guitar to get the notes out. These appear in the catalog offered only in sunburst or white, so if you're after a classy Tele in an unusual dreamy hue, nab this charmer and thank yourself for many summers to come.

The sides have a few little chips and dings; most notable on the bottom horn, near the input jack and on the top in the shoulder area. The front has a couple of little chips, one up from the bridge and a pair near the jack, as well as some little marks above the bridge plate and near the rear strap pin, and some standard play-scratches on the guard and top horn. Overall: good condition (7/10)
