Fender Japan '62 Telecaster TL62B Double Bound Black 2012
Fender '62 Tele, double bound gloss black, made in Japan 2012. Well... this one looks good. We always get a lot more requests for double bound Teles than we actually manage to score; they just look the absolute best and turn heads every time. The tuxedo black and white works perfectly, especially against the dark streaky rosewood and golden maple headstock. It's not all just glamour though, this also sounds superb. There's the tasty, classic Tele-twang, but there's fat, rounded low end and a punchy, beefy midrange with heaps of attack and presence. The neck is a super comfy slim C shape, it's easy to get along with and features some really sweet grain. This really delivers, plus it's certainly a classy character, so hey, take it home and love it forever?
