Up for sale, a 1994 Fender Telecaster ‘52 vintage reissue model TL52-75 in excellent, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with a molded hardshell case. Produced at the Fujigen factory, this “Made in Japan” Tele is a particularly rare model, sporting a Charcoal Burst gloss finish.

The pair of TL-Vintage single coil pickups deliver quintessential Tele snap and punch, with chewy twang at the bridge and fuller, bell-like tones at the neck.
