FENDER LITE ASH TELECASTER SPECIAL 2004 KOREA BIRDSEYE NECK MIK Tele 41551


Regular price $699

You're looking at a rare 2004 Fender Lite Ash Tele in Natural finish in excellent condition. Great axe with tons of crazy woodgrain showing all over. The birdseye maple neck is sweet as well. These guitars were dreamed up by the Fender Japan Custom Shop but produced in Korea for only a couple years. Based on classic 1952-style specs, the guitar has a 50's style single ply black pickguard, ashtray bridge with brass barrel saddles, classic control plate with rounded-top control knobs and 3-way selector switch. The neck is a real piece of art: a 2-piece birdseye maple sporting 22 medium jumbo frets and beautiful abalone dot inlays and a comfy C-profile--it's nice and chunky feeling, not your average Tele neck. The headstock features a Fender gold spaghetti logo and two Fender string trees for improved performance. Two Seymour Duncan pickups round out the package (APTR-1 Alnico Pro2 in neck and APTL-1 Alnico Pro2 in the bridge). Cosmetically, the guitar is in very good condition. The only marks are some mild checking/finish cracks I've shows in pictures. Frets are in excellent shape. Weight is 8 pounds, 0 ounces. No case. I just did a complete detail and full setup on the guitar. It's ready to go. (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.
