Fender Japan Telecaster 1962 Custom Reissue w/ Factory Fitted Bigsby & USA Pups
Top of the line Candy Apple Red Fender Custom 62' RI Telecaster (TL62B). Double bound, alder body with factory fitted B-5 Bridge & Fender Bigsby. It's got big sounding USA Texas Special pups & a cool mint-green 3-ply pickguard. It is a CIJ S-Serial from 2005-06 and is in fine condition. This is as good as it gets for Fender Japan Telecasters. The bigsby against the CAR looks great (pics!) The body binding is starting to yellow nicely and the metal hardware is beginning to get a nice patina all over giving it a cool vintage look. It will only get better looking as the ageing process continues. Not too heavy for a Bigsby equipped Tele at 3.9kg. Nice wide shallow U profile neck. It’s worth remembering that Fender Japan are no longer building these bigsby equipped ‘62’ Customs. There are no issues electrically or structurally. Neck fine, frets fine, truss rod fine. It is pre-loved so not new & not mint but is excellent condition with just a few scuffs/blemishes but nothing ugly and definately no paint chips etc. The only modification is a cream Strat selected switch tip. This one is in fine condition for a CIJ. Comes with gig bag. An absolute stunner.
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 pictures are of actual guitars, 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.
