Used Fender Telecaster '52 Reissue Charcoal Burst

Fender Tele, '52 reissue in vintage natural, made in Japan 1993-4. These '52 Teles are some of the sweetest and most sort after Fender models to come out of the Fujigen factory, and rightly so! The soft-V neck with maple board is really intuitive in the hand; the 50s style 7.25" radius is super sweet for rhythm work. 'Charcoal Burst' is a rare finish, and with 25ish years under the belt this is looking seriously great. There's a little bit of checking in the lacquer, which only serves to further compound the cool. The body features some bold and beautiful grain, as well as being light and responsive. The tone is classic T: bright, clear, sensitive, articulate. This one is a winner!

Model: Fender Telecaster '52 Reissue (TL52-75)
Made: Japan, 1993-94 (serial Q032867)
Finish: charcoal burst (CCB), single ply black guard
Body: American basswood (as per catalog, could possibly be sen ash)
Neck: maple, maple board, mild V profile
Mods: none
Weight: 3.2kg
Pickups: Fender Japan TL Vintage
Case: basic gig bag

Cosmetic condition notes: Minor cosmetic wear. There's a handful of minor dings above the guard, behind the bridge, along the top edge and on the back. There's some long finish checking cracks in the lacquer, a couple on the front and one on the back. Chrome parts are in good condition with only minor wear. Guard has some minor play-wear but is sitting flush and looks fine. Overall: very good condition (8/10)

Playing condition notes: Action is low, neck is straight, intonation is good, truss rod works. The frets are in good shape, there's a little wear but heaps of life in them, 8/10. Feels great!
