Out Of Stock
Up for sale, a 1991 Fender Telecaster ‘62 vintage reissue model TL62-60 in perfect working order. An early Fender Japan model produced at the Fujigen factory, this '62 Telecaster has been modified with a host of '50s-spec features including brass bridge saddles, domed knurled knobs, and a single-ply black pickguard.

Tonewoods include a basswood body, maple neck, and thick slab rosewood fretboard, yielding a balanced, clear natural acoustic profile faithfully captured by the stock pair of TL-Vintage single coil pickups. These pickups deliver classic Tele sparkle and percussive cut; the bridge pickup has flat alnico magnet pole pieces and offers ample twang, while the neck pickup has a bell-like roundness. This Tele weighs 7lbs 11oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.

The maple neck has a slender C-shaped profile carve with generous shoulders and lightly rolled fretboard edges, measuring .810” deep at the 1st fret and .920” at the 12th. The thick slab rosewood fretboard has a vintage-spec 7 1/4“ radius, and the slender fretwire has been leveled and crowned in this guitar’s lifetime, currently showing no wear. This Telecaster plays cleanly up the 25 1/2“ scale with a straight neck and a responsive, optimally-adjusted truss rod, and the bone nut measures 1.650” (42mm) in width. On the headstock, the original Kluson-style tuning machines turn smoothly and hold accurate pitch, with clean chrome plating. The “Made in Japan” text and K-prefix serial are present above the Fender-embossed four-bolt neck plate. The neck heel is pencil dated to 6-10-91, and the heel also retains a TL62-60 model stamp.

All of the electronics function as intended, including a three-way pickup selector and Master Volume and Tone knobs. The harness features full-size Japanese pots, one of which dates to July of 1991 (the other dates to 1992, likely an early replacement). The body was also previously routed for a middle pickup and a larger pickup in the neck positon as well. Both routes are cleanly covered by the '50s-style pickguard. Hardware includes the clean chrome-plated control plate and dome-topped knurled knobs, with uniform patina on the replacement bridge base and trio of brass saddles.

Save for the previous (professionally done) pickup routing beneath the pickguard, this Telecaster is a well-kept example, with cosmetic wear on the Olympic White gloss finish limited to a few minor dings on the body as a while, largely on the lower bout perimeter, some light buckle worming on the back central to the waist, and a scant few faint finish scratches in the clear coat on the body as a whole. The smooth gloss on the neck profile is nigh flawless.

A Fender-branded gigbag is included.
