(SOLD) Fender Japan '62 Telecaster TL62B Bound Transparent Blue 2010
Fender Telecaster, double bound blue, made in Japan 2010. We love a good bound T around here, and oh boy, this one looks goooood. The transparent blue finish lets the subtle grain of the alder body show through, and paired with streaky rosewood board, sixties style spaghetti decal and the cream binding, this really oozes class. The neck on this is slim and straight with a gorgeous vintage style 7.25" radius, which feels awesome in the hands. These '62 style slim C necks win a lot of friends in the store, it's a very easy neck to get along with. The tone on deck is a crispy, full take on the classic Tele twang: heaps of clarity and sweetness on the top end, balanced by a rounded, understated bass that keeps your chords punchy and popping. These seldom hang around long, so hesitate at your peril.
