Now here is one unique Tele!
It is very rare for a guitar to have a one-piece body so even the most expensive guitars mostly are made out of two pieces of wood. This Tele is an exception!
Thanks to a thin nitro finish this guitar is loud acoustically and has stunning natural body resonance. Finish allows the wood to breathe and vibrate freely - and you can see (and feel!) all that gorgeous ash wood grain through the colour. Body was made in Japan by Hosco, who are very well-known for their highest quality work, on many occasions easily beating that of Fender Japan. Single piece of swamp ash was used for this body and they also made sure it is as lightweight as possible! Brilliant! It was a good day at the factory!
Neck is a very cool 2013 Fender Japan 52 Vintage Reissue model, and unlike the vast majority of these 52 models this doesn't come in huge V or D shapes. It is actually quite a modest C-shape, similar to what you might find on American Standard guitars. Gorgeous honey amber gloss finish has that nice 3D effect and thanks to gloss fretboard bending is easier than ever.
Electric voice is provided by a pair of vintage-voiced single-coils with alnico V magnets, that are both slightly overwound for a bit more oomph and character. Wiring is all USA-spec with CTS A250K pots, Oak 3-way switch, Orange Drop ceramic tone capacitor and Electrosocket output jack mount.
Guitar comes in pristine condition with no visible wear.
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.
