About This Listing

Up for sale is my outstanding Fender Japan 2018 Midnight Telecaster...

I've owned it for just over a year, but I haven't played it more than a few hours. With the addition of a Double Esquire a few days ago, I have to let one of my Teles go. Unfortunately for me - and good for you - this is the one being put up for sale. 

This guitar is, as my friends say, titties and beer. It has a thicker neck, which I tend to shy away from. However, I loved it, and found it to be really great. Check out the yellow vintage tint on the neck, the nice figuring on the rosewood fret board, and the color-matched headstock with silver Fender logo. 

The body is resonant, even unplugged. Clean tones on the bridge aren't brittle, just that bright Tele goodness. And the neck pickup... I live there. It's just so full. Makes me sound better than I am.

A Wilkinson bridge has been installed, it has the compensated saddles. There is also a GraphTech string tree replacing the stock Fender unit. You get these original parts with the guitar. 

The frets remind me more of a 1974 "fretless" Les Paul Custom; they're small/narrow/short, so playing fast isn't a problem on this neck. I'd say there is 99.7% life left in them. There is the smallest amount of wear where the cowboy chords live - so you basically have better than great frets.

The guitar plays excellent, works as it should, and has no issues whatsoever. There are no breaks, cracks, or repairs. 

It's funny how Tele guys are interested in how much they weigh. This one tips the scales at 7 lbs 14 oz.

The guitar didn't come with a gig bag or case, but I will ensure it is packed and shipped with the utmost care and protection. You will get a really great guitar when it arrives.

I am underselling the condition of this guitar; it has minor polish marks on the pick guard and body. These can be easily polished out if you like, but they can't be seen in most light conditions. There are also two small indentations. I call one less than minor (edge of the top body where your right arm rests), and one is just below the bridge. (See photo. I can't even photograph the more minor one.) I want you to know there are a couple of imperfections, so I believe you'll feel this guitar will be in excellent condition when you see it. Because it technically matches the Very Good condition definition, I've listed it as such. I'm above board and I deal honestly.

Here is the marketing stuff and details from Fender:
