£1,345.00Price

Top of the line Old Candy Apple Red Fender 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’s a CIJ S-Serial from 2005-06 and is in nice condition overall. This is as good as it gets for Fender Japan Telecasters. The bigsby against the OCAR 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 aging process continues. Not too heavy for a Bigsby equipped Tele at dead on 4kg. It has a dark and dense Indian rosewood fingerboard with a 7.25 radius. Nice wide shallow U profile neck. It’s worth remembering that Fender Japan are no longer building these fully bound, bigsby equipped ‘62’s. 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 general light playwear. No big nasty dings or paint chips. Don’t worry if the strings look rough. These pics were taken before it was serviced. It has now been fully checked over, set-up, had new strings, a fret polish and the fingerboard oiled etc. This one is in fine condition for a CIJ. Comes with gig bag. A stunner old Fender Japan Telecaster.
