Fender '62 Reissue Telecaster TL62B-75TX Bound Vintage White 2004/5
Fender '62 Reissue Tele, double bound vintage white, crafted in Japan in 2004-05. Holy heck, this is a stunning piece of work. The TL62B-75TX is a well-appointed 'Vintage Premium' model; so you get some good stuff: 60s spiral bridge, alder body and a pair of awesome Fender USA Texas Special pickups. The pickups deliver a thick, juicy bass to balance out the traditional Tele-twang; the slightly hot output loves a bit of drive and quickly moves into creamy, saucy goodness. The slim 60s neck wins a lot of friends; it's very cooperative and instantly feels like home. The 2004 catalog specs three finish options on this: black, sunburst, red... so the creamy vintage white that adorns this is a luxurious and rare touch. Combined with the streaky rosewood board and the classy black binding, this is absolutely dressed to kill. Some Teles just ooze awesomeness, and this is definitely one of them!
