FENDER KOA Tele +Bird's Eye Neck MIK 2006 Korean Telecaster Upgrades +HSC 93865
This is a 2006 Fender Special Edition KOA Telecaster made in Korea with hard case. Features include:
— Only non-custom shop Tele constructed with KOA.
— Satin-finish birdseye maple neck, pearl dot inlays.
— Seymour Duncan Alnico Pro pickups.
— Upgraded Fender locking tuners.
The guitar is constructed with an alder body topped by KOA, which is a traditional exotic Hawaiian tone wood. Other features include 22 medium jumbo frets, pearloid pickguard, and vintage ashtray bridge with brass barrel saddles. The birds-eye on the back of the neck is quite stunning (see pics). Cosmetically, lots of playing scuffs, but no big dings. Frets are in great condition. Weight is 8 pounds, 1 ounce. Case has some dings in the plastic but it works well. Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing. Thanks for looking! Manufacturer info at bottom (note the black pickguard spec changed at some point, as many of these came from the factory with pearloid).
What You Get

-- 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.
This Special Edition Koa Telecaster electric guitar combines vintage purity and a custom look. The koa top, with its beautiful grain visible through an antique burst finish, lends a look of understated elegance that is enhanced by a birdseye maple neck. Its other features are a mix of modern and vintage: modern C-shape neck profile, vintage-style 3-saddle bridge, Seymour Duncan pickups, oversized strap buttons, rosewood fretboard with medium jumbo frets and pearl dots, and a single-ply black pickguard. It's a Tele anyone can love: uptown yet true to its roots.
