Fender 2018 ROAD WORN 50s Telecaster Butterscotch Blonde Tele Relic 6 lbs 02640
This is a 2018 Fender Road Worn Telecaster in a rare Butterscotch Blonde nitro finish. This is the prior (and better) series before the Vintera series--don't be fooled by big retailers selling "Road Worn" Telecasters and leaving "Vintera" out of the title. They are trying to pass off 2020/2021 Vintera guitars as the Road Worn Series.
Now once you're sure you're looking a true Road Worn, you'll find some of these come with almost no relicing. Others, look just too beat up. This one has just the right amount of tasteful relic wear.
Nice tasteful paint wear all around the edges. Also, the hardware is nicely softened to a dull glow. The back of the neck is worn down so your hand slides real easy.
There is even some mild paint checking in a couple spots. Very realistic to years of well-loved playing--but not beat to within an inch of its life! Attention to detail and the little touches are evident on this guitar. The electronics, neck, and frets on this are in great condition. It feels and plays like a well-worn pair of blue jeans.
Weight is astonishingly light at 6 pounds, 6 ounces! No case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks!
What You Get
-- Full setup, cleaning, and new strings.
-- FREE USA shipping.
-- 30-day return policy.
-- Ship within 1 business day--pro packing.
All 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.
