Fender '62 Reissue Tele, double bound candy apple red, made in Japan in 2010-11. What an absolute knockout! This is a show-stopper from every angle, it really does drip with style and class. These bound '62 models are pretty hard to come by and in hot demand; it's not hard to see why. The neck is slim and quick, it's very easy to move around on and a little more instantly familiar then the 50s profile common on some Japanese teles. Tone-wise, it's all there: big sparkly top, thick punchy mids, tight bass. It's very satisfying both clean and dirty, it'll happily slot into a whole lot of different genres. Ships with a really sweet tweed hardcase, appropriately lined in deluxe red velvet. This is the whole package: killer looks, sweet tone, easy playing.
