One of the things I love so much about Fender Japan are the oddballs that come up from time to time. Here we offer you a Fender Japan 1962 Custom Reissue Telecaster in factory silver sparkle finish! We have had a couple in before over the years and I believe there are from a small non-catalogue run back in 2004. It’s a CIJ R-Serial (2004-05). It has a lightweight alder body with white 3-ply pickguard, full body binding (which is yellowing nicely), Fender stamped Pat. Pend. Bridge with 3-section T8 spiral saddles, TL vintage pickups and comfortable oval neck profile. Some really nice tonewoods were used for this one. It has a very dark and dense rosewood fretboard. The maple neck and headstock show some nice grain patterns too. Sonically the TL vintage pickups sound great. Plenty of bite and twang and a great Tele action. Really resonant too when unplugged and feels great to play. Weight is 3.6kg. It has had a small shallow hole professionally filled on the back, the finish is smooth and it's the hole was not deep into the body but the sparkle finish match is off ( I suppose it would be something pretty hard to match!)  Neck dead straight, truss rod fine, plenty of life left in the frets. It’s obviously pre-owned so does have a few very light signs of being played, but overall in great condition. Complete with Fender soft case.
