Japanese made reissues of vintage Fender instruments have long been lauded as some of the highest quality and most vintage spec'd guitars you can buy outside of the Fender Custom Shop. As with many rarer vintage Fender guitars, players have turned to Japanese made Fender guitars to get period correct vintage spec instruments due to their craftsmanship and amazing value for money.
This Fender Japan TL62 is a faithful reissue of an early 60's Fender Telecaster, with an authentic vintage tone and striking 60's custom colour finish. Dating from between 2007 and 2010, this '62 reissue features vintage correct 60's 'C' shape neck profile and 7.25" radius with vintage sized frets for a true vintage feel. The pickups are upgraded Texas Special single coils, with a slightly hotter, more bluesy vintage tone complete with cloth wire and brass base plate. As with all Fender Japan models, this guitar is finished exceptionally, with an Ocean Turquoise custom colour finish that is not often seen on Japanese models and is considered very desirable. This guitar also features period correct Kluson style tuners and a three saddle threaded string through body bridge.
