Description
This is a 2017 Fender Road Worn Telecaster in a rare TV Yellow finish. This is basically like new and comes with Fender gig bag, all original paperwork and hangtags. The great thing about the Road Worn series is each one is a little different. You can see my other 50s Tele up right now that has much different type of wear. This one has some nice tasteful paint wear all around the edges (check the wear on the headstock!--so cool). Very realistic to years of well-loved playing. Not overdone. Looks like someone took care of their guitar for 20 or 30 years and just played it so much the edge paint started to wear away. Great thing about these relics is that with all the wear, they still play perfectly. The electronics, neck, and frets on this are in great condition. It feels and plays like a well-worn old pair of blue jeans. Weight is 7 pounds, 14 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks!

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.
