Offered here is a Fender American Vintage Reissue '62 Custom Telecaster built in 2008. While 15 years old, this lovely instrument remains in near mint condition and has seen little play. Fender stopped making this model back in 2012 as the cost of production became prohibitive relative to their Custom Shop versions of this same guitar. These AVRI models are known to be fabulous guitars and you don't see many clean examples like this beauty as folks tend to hold onto them.
This marvelous Tele has specs which are true to the original upon which it is based. It has an Alder body with binding on both sides and a 3 tone sunburst nitrocellulose lacquer finish. It has a Maple neck with an oval C-shape and depth measurements of .82" at the 1st fret and .93" at the 12th. It has a lovely dark slab Rosewood fretboard with a 7.25" radius, vintage frets and a 1.650 Tusq nut. It comes with a vintage style Tele bridge with steel saddles and the so called "ash tray" bridge cover. The tuners are era-correct vintage style. This guitar has a total weight of 7.6 pounds. It is completely original except that the "vintage dark circuit" capacitor has been removed on the neck pickup giving this guitar modern wiring with a useful neck pickup tone.
Pick up this guitar and you would think it was a much more expensive Custom Shop model. It plays like butter and the tone is just what you want; that classic Tele twang without being piercing. Check out the brief sound sample for a taste of this Tele's tone!
This guitar is in fantastic condition and has seen little play and the frets look like new. The only flaws I can find is a small area on the back near the strap pin where the nitro has reacted to a guitar stand or strap (see included photo). You will have to look very closely and from just the right angle to find this irregularity in the finish. Otherwise, this guitar could pass for new. It comes in its original brown tolex case which is also in near mint condition.
This is a high quality and very desirable Tele in fantastic condition. Make it yours today! You will be very glad you did!
