2008 Fender '74 Telecaster Deluxe Limited Edition TD74-LTD Cherry w/ Wide Range & Hangtag, Japan CIJ

$1,699.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2008 Fender Telecaster Deluxe Limited Edition ‘74 vintage reissue model TD74-LTD in excellent, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original gigbag and serialized hangtag. This rare, non-catalog “Crafted in Japan” Tele was produced exclusively for the Japanese domestic market and is uncommon outside of its country of origin, featuring a pair of Wide Range humbuckers.

Tonewoods include an ash body and a one-piece maple neck, and this TD74-LTD weighs 7lbs 15oz. This Telecaster is a punchy, powerful instrument with a clear, percussive quality in every pickup position and the midrange presence of ash as a tonewood. The Wide Range humbuckers are a “best of both worlds” design, combining single coil-esque sparkle and cut with the added warmth and fullness of a humbucker. This TD74-LTD has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 9-42 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.

The gloss Transparent Cherry finish highlights the notably tight, uniform grain in the ash body, and cosmetic wear is limited to pick scuffing on the pickguard, a scant few tiny dings on the top, and a few finish scratches on the back and lower bout perimeter. The smooth gloss on the neck profile is flawless.

The original Fender-branded gigbag is included, along with the serialized hangtag.
