Fender Telecaster '62 Reissue w/ Texas Specials 2004-05 Ice Metallic Blue w HSC
A very cool one here. Absolutely top of the line factory Ice Blue Fender 62' RI custom Telecaster (TL62B). It’s a CIJ R-Serial (2004-05). This was built by Fender Japan and not Mexican made. Double bound, alder body with factory fitted B-5 Bridge & Fender Bigsby. Huge sounding USA Texas Special pups, dark and dense slab rosewood fingerboard with 7.25 radius and jumbo frets & a cool mint-green 3-ply pickguard. This is as good as it gets for Fender Japan Telecasters. The bigsby against the Ice Blue looks pretty amazing. The white body binding has started to age nicely, which again, looks great against the Ice Blue. Very 1950’s looking (even though it's a '62 RI). No issues electrically or structurally. Neck fine, frets fine, truss rod fine. There is some playwear a few scuffs and scrapes & dings here & there, the largest bump is on the back which you can see from the pics. But it looks and plays fantastic. As usual Ice Metallic Blue is a really hard colour to capture in daylight. The pics where the guitar looks more blue and less green are the closest to its true colour. Complete with tweed HSC.
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 guitar, we do not use stock photos. NOT FOR TRADE or part exchange, thanks. We ship to the E.U, Europe, U.S, Canada, Australia, NZ and of course the UK.
