2018 Fender Haruna Signature Telecaster Arctic White w/ USA Dimarzio Pickups, Japan MIJ


+ shipping

Out Of Stock
Up for sale, a 2018 Fender Haruna Telecaster in near-mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. This short-run “Made in Japan” Telecaster was the first (discontinued) signature model of Haruna, the rhythm guitarist and lead singer of the Japanese rock band Scandal. Features include an Arctic White finish with matching headstock, gold sparkle binding, gold hardware, and a pair of USA-made DiMarzio pickups.

The tonewood complement comprises an alder body and maple neck, offering a snappy, balanced acoustic profile for the pair of DiMarzio pickups. The Chopper T DP384 in the bridge position is a single coil-sized humbucker with a blade pole design, delivering plenty of power and punch with robust mids and lows. The Twang King DP172G in the neck position is designed to capture the finest qualities of early "Blackguard" Telecaster neck pickups with sweet, bell-like fullness and throaty articulation, featuring a ferrous baseplate, hand-calibrated magnets, and wax potting for squeal-free performance. This Haruna Tele weighs 8lbs 4oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.
