FENDER 2018 OFFSET TELECASTER Made in Japan MIJ Mahogany Very Clean! +Bag 03616


Regular price $1,100

This is a 2018 Fender Offset Telecaster in excellent condition. These were a very short run, so it's a rare guitar. Chunky U-shaped neck. The P90 in the neck position sounds great. Lots of power and mixes well with the Tele bridge pickup. Cosmetically, it has one tiny mark in belt buckle area (see pics below). I would call it 9.5/10 condition. Frets are in A+ shape. Comes with factory gigbag and paperwork. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. Weight is 7 pounds, 15 ounces. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.)  I may end auction early if it sells elsewhere. Thanks for looking!

Guitar Setup
My setup on guitars includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. I spray out any pots that are noisy. I turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. I don't claim to be a trained luthier, but I'm able to set guitars/basses for a reasonable out-of-box experience and have had very few complaints. If you're looking for the perfect setup on a used guitar, please expect to take it to a trained luthier who is familiar with your individual playing style and preferences. ps: basses get the same setup minus the new strings. Thanks!

Packing
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
