Fender Custom Shop 1952 Telecaster in Red Sparkle Heavy Relic (August 2009)

This is a one of a kind Telecaster verified by Fender with the factory travel sheet included. You will not find another one like this and this Red Sparkle color is very rare. Purchased by me in early 2010 from Chicago and never gigged or left my house.  You can imagine it sounds as good as it looks.

Very reluctant to sell but want the money for another project. This is a high value piece that will continue to appreciate.
