FENDER Early 2012 ROAD WORN 50s TELECASTER Blonde Tele White Guard Relic 93215


Regular price $1,299

 

Description
This is a 2012 Fender Road Worn Telecaster in a rare nitro Butterscotch Blonde finish with rare white pickguard. This is an early Road Worn, only fourth year of production. It's the prior (and better) series before the Vintera series. These Road Worn guitars are not all created equal. I like the way Fender was doing it early on in production--not cutting corners and actually making each guitar look a little different. I'd put this one up against any of the new 2020 cookie cutter Road Worns you see out there.

It has nice tasteful paint wear around the edges. The hardware is nicely softened to a dull glow. The back of the neck is worn down so your hand slides real easy and the fretboard shows worn lacquer for nice effect. There is even some mild paint checking on the body. 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. As on many of these worn Fenders you can feel the skunk stripe sticking out a tiny bit up near the nut, a common result with the bare neck. Weight is 7 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!

Guitar Setup
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!


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.
