1983 Fender Telecaster Standard Vintage USA-Made Electric Guitar Sunburst w/ Case, Lollar


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1983 Fender Telecaster Standard in perfect working order, upgraded with a pair of Lollar pickups and complete with the original hardshell case.

Tonewoods include an alder body, maple neck, and slab rosewood fretboard, and the upgraded Lollar pickups include a Special T in the bridge position and a Vintage T at the neck. The Special T is Lollar’s most popular Tele pickup, designed in the vein of early ‘50s Broadcaster pickups, with a hair more midrange kick plus a small bump in compression for extra smooth trebles while still delivering plenty of quintessential Tele twang. The Vintage T at the neck is exceedingly faithful to vintage spec, full and bell-like while retaining excellent articulation, pairing well with the more aggressive Special T in the middle position. This Tele weighs 8lbs 1oz, professionally setup here at Mike and Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.

The control cavities have been shielded, and the neck pickup cavity has been routed for a humbucker. Cosmetic wear on the gloss Sunburst finish includes scuffing along the pick path and at the bass-side lower bout on top, limited buckle rash on the back, and some minor dings and finish scratches on the body as a whole. The neck profile retains its smooth ambered gloss, with a few shallow marks along the profile length.

The original Fender molded hardshell case is included.
