1995 Fender Custom Edition Telecaster TL62-70NS Foto Flame Top, Japan MIJ

$1,499.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1995 Fender Telecaster ‘62 vintage reissue model TL62-70NS in perfect working order, complete with the original gigbag. A rare “Made in Japan” Telecaster, this model was produced in limited quantities for just one year as part of the Custom Edition line (although this example is devoid of any “Custom Edition” branding). Virtually unseen outside of Japan, it features a Foto Flame-finished basswood top on an alder body, highlighted by a gloss Vintage Natural finish.

A maple neck and slab rosewood fretboard round out the tonewood complement, and this TL62-70NS weighs 7lbs 8oz. The TL-Vintage alnico single coil pickups deliver chewy twang and cut in the bridge position, with a smooth sounding neck pickup that has a percussive snap. This TL62-70US has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.

The “Flame Natural” (catalog FNT) finish exhibits some isolated checking in the gloss, with  finish chipping from an impact on the treble side lower bout perimeter. Further cosmetic wear includes a number of minor dings on the body as a whole, largely relegated to the back and perimeter. The neck profile retains its smooth ambered gloss.

The original Fender gigbag is included.
