2006 Fender Telecaster Custom '62 Vintage Reissue TL62B Black w/ USA Pickups, Japan CIJ


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2006 Fender Telecaster Custom ‘62 vintage reissue model TL62B in excellent  condition and in perfect working order, complete with upgraded pickups and a six-saddle bridge. This “Crafted in Japan” Tele was produced for the Japanese domestic market, long since discontinued and uncommon outside its country of origin, featuring a gloss Black finish framed by white top and back binding.

Tonewoods include an alder body, maple neck, and slab rosewood fretboard, providing a balanced, smooth platform for the pickup pair. These single coils are faithful to vintage spec with black fiber bobbins, staggered alnico pole pieces and cloth-covered leads. The pickups have a full-bodied sound with percussive cut, chewy twang and taut low end. The guitar weighs 8lbs 6oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action and accurate intonation.

Neck Specs:

-Wood: Maple
-Shape: Slender C, moderate shoulders, measuring .815” 1st fret, .915” 12th fret
-Fretboard: Rosewood slab, 7 1/4” vintage-spec radius
-Frets: Slender, light wear beneath the plain strings on frets 1-5
-Scale Length: 25 1/2”
-Nut: 1 11/16", bone
-Tuners: Kluson-style Gotoh

Body Specs:

-Wood: Alder

-Controls: Volume, Tone, Three-way pickup selector
-Hardware: Six-saddle bridge (replacement), flat-topped knurled knobs

This is a notably well-kept example, with cosmetic wear limited to some concentrated pick scuffing on the treble side of the pickguard, and just a few minor marks and light finish scratches on the body as a whole.

The original Fender-branded gigbag is included.
