Fender Made in Japan Traditional 60s Telecaster Custom Bound Sonic Blue 2019
Fender MIJ Trad 60s Telecaster Custom, double bound sonic blue, made in Japan 2019. No description needed when it looks like this, right? These bound Teles always look great, and this is the first one I've ever seen in this finish. Sonic blue is a saucy hue and this is gorgeous, no doubt. The neck is a slim C shape, it's super friendly in the hands... this 60s style shape wins a lot of fans. The body is light and loud acoustically; it snaps back at you when you play it enthusiastically. There’s a tasty sparkle to the tone; it’s absolutely got that classic Tele Twang with a nice hi-Fi crispness and a rounded, jovial low end. You can’t go wrong here; it’s a great sounding Tele and is sure to turn plenty of heads.
