1992 Fender Telecaster ‘72 Vintage Reissue TL72-58 Butterscotch, Japan MIJ Fujigen


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1992 Fender Telecaster ‘72 vintage reissue model TL72-58 in excellent condition and in perfect working order. This “Made in Japan” Telecaster was produced exclusively for the Japanese domestic market at the famed Fujigen factory, uncommon outside its country of origin.

The guitar features a traditional '50s Fender tonewood complement, with an ash body finished in Butterscotch Blonde and a one-piece maple neck. The instrument has a punchy acoustic sound with a kick in the midrange and healthy sustain, weighing 8lbs 9oz. The original pair of TL-Vintage single coil pickups deliver quintessential Tele tonalities: the flat-pole bridge pickup offers twang and percussive cut, while the neck pickup is round and bell-like. This Telecaster has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.

The gloss Butterscotch Blonde finish is almost opaque, with the dynamic grain of the ash body subtly peeking through. Cosmetic wear includes buckle rash on the back at the lower bout, scuffing on top along the pick path, and a number of minor dings on the body as a whole, most prominent along the lower bout perimeter. There is also a faint square-shaped "tan line" from a previously removed sticker behind the bridge on top. The neck profile retains its smooth ambered gloss, with a couple shallow nicks along the profile length that have no impact on playability.

A padded gigbag is included.
