FENDER BLACK DOVE 72 Classic Player TELECASTER Deluxe Rare FSR P90 Tele Red 87037
You're looking at a very rare Fender Classic Player Black Dove 72 Telecaster Custom. Only 300 were made in a limited run in 2011-12. They come with an alder body and two soapbar P90 pickups. The dual P90s are Fender's Black Dove pickups (also known as DE-9000 and were featured in the USA-made Strat-o-Sonic), which sound great, sort of in between a humbucker and single coil. Plenty of grit but not overly fat. A Crimson Red finish matched with the black pickguard and pickup covers is eye catching, and the tummy cut, large 70s headstock and Strat-style bridge are unique features. I don't want to sell this! You rarely see these come around, and this one looks near new. I just peeled the plastic from the pickguard before taking these photos. Cosmetically 9.5/10. I found one teeny, tiny mark and a scuff on the guard around pickup selector. Set up and ready to play. No case. Very comfortable 7 pounds, 7 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks.

The Fender Classic Player Telecaster Deluxe Black Dove is styled after the Telecaster Deluxe of the early 1970s with a C-shaped neck, bullet truss rod, and vintage hardtail string-through Stratocaster bridge. The Classic Player electric guitar features an alder body with a 1-piece maple neck with a 21-fret maple fingerboard and a Classic Fender Strat headstock. The dual Black Dove single-coil pickups have a smoky fat single-coil tone. This unique Fender Telecaster has a look and sound all its own and comes with a deluxe gig bag.

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 isˇhighly subjectiveˇyou 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.
