2023 Fender Limited Edition Sparkle Telecaster FilterTron Humbuckers, Japan MIJ


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2023 Fender Limited Edition Sparkle Telecaster in like-new condition, complete with the original padded softshell case. Visually and sonically evoking a classic Gretsch Jet, this “Made in Japan” Tele was produced in small quantities, sporting a dynamic, dense Silver Sparkle top, loaded with a pair of Black Top Filter’Tron humbuckers. Other premium features include locking tuners, CTS 500K pots and a Sprague Orange Drop tone cap.

The tonewood complement comprises a solid alder body, maple neck, and 22-fret slab rosewood fingerboard, and this Tele weighs 7lbs 8oz. The pair of Black Top Filter’Tron humbuckers have the notable treble detail and muscle; the neck pickup has a thick, silky feel with great articulation, while the bridge position offers a cutting growl, sweet midrange snap, and excellent note attack. This Limited Edition Sparkle Telecaster has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.
