2016 Fender Japan Exclusive Classic 60s Telecaster Custom Candy Apple Red, MIJ TL62B


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2016 Fender "Japan Exclusive" Classic 60s Telecaster Custom in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. This Tele Custom is a discontinued model, produced only for the Japanese domestic market and select international territories, uncommon outside of its country of origin. Essentially identical to the TL62B model which preceded it, this Telecaster faithfully captures the look and feel of a vintage example, with tonewoods comprising a bound alder body, maple neck, and slab rosewood fretboard.

The tonewood complement yields a lively, chiming acoustic profile with a woody, percussive chop faithfully captured by the stock pair of Vintage-Style single coil pickups. These pickups have a range of quintessential Tele tonalities on tap, with gutsy twang at the bridge and a fuller, bell-like quality at the neck that retains excellent articulation. Weighing 7lbs 14oz, this Tele has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.
