Fender '62 reissue Tele in vintage white, crafted in Japan 1997/8. The white/rosewood combo always looks appealing, this has classic charm in spades. The slim neck on the '62 style Teles like this is easy in the hands and satisfying to move around on; it's a nice player that's equally happy playing rhythm or big bending lead parts. The standard singles sound great, there's plenty of body and twang to work with. This is creamy in looks, tone and feel!
