(SOLD) Used Fender Telecaster '52 Reissue Natural Gloss
Fender Tele, '52 reissue, made in Japan 1997-8, natural gloss over ash. This is one of Fender Japan's high-end models; these fetched a premium price back in the 90s. The factory-fitted Texas Special pickups sounds awesome: heaps of cut and bite paired with huge body, warmth and low-end. The neck is a soft-V, which feels amazing and natural in the hand. The grain on the ash really shines through, it's a seriously stunning body that'll have you drooling from every angle. This is a proper Tele!
