Here as cool Fender Japan 52 Vintage Reissue Telecaster for sale! Made in Japan in 2021, this Tele comes with a vintage Fender Japan 52 Reissue V-shape neck from 1996 - the year Fender celebrated 50 years since the start of the company - hence the little medallion on the back of the headstock. This guitar has it all: classic "Blackguard" Telecaster design, Japan craftsmanship and reliable USA-made wiring components.
Relatively lightweight body has lovely natural resonance and that classic Butterscotch Blonde finish with the wood grain poking through the paint. Body has minimal surface wear, mainly concentrated on the 1-ply gloss black pickguard, that gave the "Blackguard" 1952 Telecaster that iconic look we all know and love. No structural damage and no modifications - internal cavities are intact.
Comfy soft V-shape maple neck has that awesome worn-in satin feel on the back and some lacquer wear on the fretboard. Original vintage frets are in great condition, original Kluson Japan slotted tuners work very well.
Classic Fender Pat Pend bridge is equipped with brass saddles, that provide pretty good intonation and sustain.
Electric voice is provided by a set of Fender Japan's latest 52 Reissue Telecaster single-coils - with plenty of tonal variety across 3 switch positions and lovely clarity and punch that Teles are known and loved for. Equipped with USA-made CTS A250K pots and Oak 3-way switch as well as Yellow Hornet tone capacitor and treble bleed circuit to retain the quality of tone when rolling the volume down.
This instrument received a full professional setup with deep body cleaning, body polish, neck deep clean, full electronics check, truss-rod and action and intonation adjustment. Restringed with D'addario 10-46 Nickel-plated steel strings.
This guitar will be shipped around UK with Parcelforce courier, safely packed into a sturdy guitar cardboard box. 24h courier service provided to UK customers. Worldwide shipping available as well.

Please note that although we put our heart and soul and also all our knowledge into every single guitar we sell, a setup is a personal preference and we cannot give any guarantees. However, we try to get the best playability out of every guitar and set them up so you can play both rhythm and lead. We also pull them all apart to clean and check every single component and replace all unreliable parts with new ones, from dodgy pots to the whole wiring, tuners, string trees, nuts and etc. All the work done is described in detail in the listing.
We make sure that every guitar we sell is problem free and take full responsibility for the accuracy of our listing descriptions. All photographs are done by a professional photographer and processed on a calibrated monitor. Some colours might look slightly different on your monitor, but we will always put the official Fender colour name in the listing description, so please study pictures of other guitars with the same colour if you are unsure. We focus on finding great quality guitars and making them reliable and inspiring to play.
