This MIJ Fender Telecaster is a real beauty. All original, made in the Fujigen factory in Japan. The charcoal burst finish is a gorgeous dark butterscotch, almost creme brulee like appearance. This finish was only offered for a few years, I believe from 1989-1993. These don't show up often and are becoming increasingly collectible. There is quite a bit of beautiful woodgrain showing through the finish of the body and the neck. She weighs in at just a hair over 7 lbs.

The rosewood fretboard is dark and looks killer. The frets show some wear but I estimate they still have 80% or better life left, and I don't find any dead spots. The slim "C" shape neck is comfortable and smooth. The electronics are original and the pickups sound great.

The body and neck have some small dings here and there, but nothing major and no cracks or chips, no repairs, just the typical wear you might expect from a guitar this age but still being clean and in fantastic condition. The pickguard has the typical scratching and swirl marks.

I am not the original owner, but while I have had the guitar it has been kept in my clean, smoke free home studio, never gigged with. I actually did not put that many hours of playing time on it, but have enjoyed it nonetheless. Selling only to fund other projects.

The guitar ships in an original Fender hardshell case. The case is older and shows some wear and age to the exterior. The interior however is clean and in excellent condition.

Feel free to as any questions prior to purchasing, and thanks for looking.
