2019 Fender Traditional 60s Telecaster Daybreak FSR Olympic White w/ Case, Japan MIJ

$1,549.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2019 Fender Traditional '60s Telecaster Daybreak model in showroom clean, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with a hardshell case. This "Made in Japan" Telecaster is a rare and discontinued FSR (Factory Special Run) model, and the features of the Daybreak Tele include black top and back binding akin to a Telecaster Custom framing an Olympic White gloss finish, with gold hardware used throughout.

The traditional tonewood complement includes an alder body, maple neck, and thick slab rosewood fretboard for a balanced, smooth sound. The original pickup pair delivers plenty of quintessential Fender twang and snap. The neck pickup has a smooth, bell-like chime, the middle position has a clear, percussive cut, and the bridge pickup is all sparkle and detail with flat alnico pole pieces. The guitar weighs 7lbs 5oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, strung with 10-46 roundwound strings and dialed in for low action.

The maple neck has a neck profile described by Fender as a U shape, with generous shoulder in every register and a hair more heft as you travel up the fretboard, measuring .850" deep at the 1st fret and .910" at the 12th. The slab rosewood fretboard is a dark and tight-grained cut, boasting Fender's traditional 7 1/4" fretboard radius, and the scale length measures 25 1/2". The vintage-style fretwire is practically perfect with well-rounded crowns. The neck is straight, the truss rod is responsive and optimally adjusted, and the guitar plays cleanly in all registers. The nut measures 42mm (1.650") in width. On the headstock, the Kluson-style Gotoh tuning machines turn smoothly and hold pitch well.

All of the electronics work as they should, with the stock pickup pair wired to a three-way pickup selector toggle and USA-made CTS pots capped with flat-topped knurled knobs. Other vintage-correct touches include the top hat switch tip, spiral bridge saddles, and pale mint green pickguard which accents the Olympic White gloss finish. The gold hardware is positively gleaming, and there's barely a scratch on the Olympic White gloss finish.

An upgraded SKB hardshell case is included.
