Rare! Fender Telecaster SHORT SCALE modern player Butterscotch Blonde Tele 28470

Regular price $995
You're looking at a very clean 2013 Fender Modern Player Short Scale Telecaster in Butterscotch Blonde finish. Fender did a short run and now these are rare and very hard to find. Really interesting take on the iconic Tele. Slightly smaller body and 24" scale makes it real fun to hold and play (see pic below standing next to standard Tele). C-shaped chunky neck feels small but not uncomfortable. The real standout on this guitar is the Guild neck pickup. I'm not even much of a neck pickup guy, but it sounds really cool. Round and warm but still has some bite.

The quality is pretty high on this too. Nice neck and frets, brass string saddles with string-thru-body design, thin finish with wood grain peeking through. Back of neck starting to show some flame effect. Nice appointments like Fender engraved neck plate, unique pickguard, and ashtray style bridge. About the only thing I might change is putting some locking tuners on. This guitar is very clean. It's 9.5/10 condition. Only mark I can find is a hairline mark where neck meets the body (see pics). More pics below. Weight is 6 pounds, 4 ounces. No case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks.

Guitar Setup
All our setups are done by our in-house luthier. Setup 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. We spray out any pots that are noisy, 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. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!

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.
