Fender Japan 1962 RI Custom Telecaster 1997 Sunburst CIJ Japan USA Pickups


Top of the line 1962 Reissue Custom Telecaster from Fender Japan (this is not a Mexican guitar). It's in a beautiful deep warm three tone sunburst with white body binding. It’s a very clean CIJ A-Serial from 1997-1998 with a quality lightweight alder body, big sounding factory fitted USA Texas Specials, 3-ply cream pickguard & 3 spiral saddles. Some really nice tonewoods were used for this one. Nice looking & feeling slab rosewood fingerboard with 7.25 radius. It looks great with the white body binding starting to yellow nicely with age. Sonically the Texas Special pickups sound great. Really resonant too when unplugged and feels great to play. Weight is superlight for an alder TL62b at 3.5kg. Structurally and electrically sound. Neck dead straight, truss rod fine, plenty of life left in the frets. No issues at all. No breaks or repairs. Has had some tasty upgrades with KTS titanium saddles, CTS pots and oval jack plate. Pre-owned so does have some playwear, but nothing horrendous with no big paint chips or anything. Complete with gig bag. A very cool Fender MIJ ’62 reissue Three Tone Sunburst Custom Telecaster.


At Gas Station Guitars we carefully hand-select all our guitars and refuse a lot more than we accept, if they don’t blow us away on all fronts, we just don’t put them in our shop; if it’s for sale by Gas Station Guitars, you know it’d gonna be pretty special.  All guitars are in hand and we do not use stock photos. NOT FOR TRADE or part exchange, thanks. We ship worldwide to the USA, E.U, Europe, Canada, Australia, Japan and of course the UK.
