(SOLD) Fender Japan '62 Reissue Telecaster TL62B Bound Candy Apple Red 2012
Fender '62 Reissue Tele, double bound candy apple red, made in Japan 2012. This model has got to be one of our most consistently requested guitars, people seem to lose their minds for the sleek curves of a double bound Tele. Fair enough too, this really is a stunning item. The cream binding really makes the classic candy apple pop, combined with the mint guard, it's 100% sassy. The tone on deck is a jangly, chiming, warm and juicy take on the classic Tele twang, it's a lot of fun and very convincing. This has a slim sixties C shape neck, which is an absolute breeze in the hands and instantly feels like family. There's a lot to love here, so go ahead and let yourself fall in love.
