Today we have an all original Fender American Vintage '52 Telecaster from 1988 in excellent condition. This piece was made in the corona factory by all of the expert workers who moved there from Fullerton. A near 100% recreation of the most desired '52 tele, and they absolutely nailed it. This baby has a gorgeous translucent blonde finish with a one piece maple neck. The construction of this instrument is spectacular, the thick ash body has beautiful grain and its solid construction contributes to that beautiful sustain and resonance. The electronics sound sweet and twangy and the bridge pickup can unleash chaos when overdriven.

This piece has recieved a total setup and cleaning with a fresh set of 10's. The vintage frets are tall and narrow, tons of meat left and make fretting notes a breeze. The action is low and smooth but enough height to bend as much as you want on the upper register without choking out. The 7.5" radius brings a classic vibe that allows effortless chording and with our perfect setup, total control over the board. We have made sure this tele plays as beautiful as it looks and you can expect it to be a worthy addition to your arsenal. Thank you for looking.

Condition: Excellent condition, only noticable wear is on the bottom of the body by the strap pin. Some hard to see swirl marks and one or two dings, other than that in excellent condition.
All original Electronics, pickups and pots are all original/
