Fender Telecaster '52 Reissue FujiGen E-Serial 'Micawber' 1985-87 Nat Ash
Here is a very rare mid 1980’s Fender Japan FujiGen-built Micawber Telecaster. It’s an E-Serial (1985-87) and was built for Fender at the legendary FujiGen plant in Japan. It’s a 1952 reissue based on Keith Richards legendary Tele and has a great sounding factory installed Dragster humbucker in the neck giving it some real Stones honk. It has a beautiful opaque blonde ash finish that has darkened over the decades to more of a butterscotch with the defined ash grain still visible beneath. It is super clean for one of these rare guitars with no paint chips and just light to moderate playwear. The neck is dead straight, truss rod fine and plenty of life left in the frets. Structurally and electrically sound. Nice natural ageing on the metal hardware. The humbucker cover and neck plate look particularly cool. No issues at all. No breaks, repairs or routing. Like most of these hefty old FujiGen white ash Micawbers it's a bit weighty at 4.6kg, so not for the faint-hearted. It’s well over 35 years old as is one the best conditioned examples we have come across had in the shop. It's a great playing Tele too, the pickups are both outstanding and work well together. Complete with old Japanese Telecaster hardcase (all latches working) and original 1980's Fender Japan booklet. One of the finest examples you will see of an 80's built Fender Japan Micawber and a great investment peice. A beautiful old 35+ year-old Tele!
