FENDER LITE ASH TELECASTER SPECIAL 2008 KOREA BIRDSEYE NECK MIK Tele 60624
You're looking at a rare 2008 Fender Lite Ash Tele in Natural finish in excellent condition. Great axe with tons of beautiful woodgrain showing. These guitars were dreamed up by the Fender Japan Custom Shop but produced in Korea for only a couple years. Based on classic 1952-style specs, the guitar originally had a 50's style single ply black pickguard, now changed to 3-ply tortoise.
Other features include ashtray bridge with brass barrel saddles, classic control plate with rounded-top control knobs and 3-way selector switch. The neck is a highly figured 2-piece birdseye maple sporting 22 medium jumbo frets, abalone dot inlays, and a chunky C-profile.
The headstock features a Fender gold spaghetti logo and two Fender string trees for added tuning stability--as well as some very nice upraded locking tuners. Two Seymour Duncan pickups round out the package (APTR-1 Alnico Pro2 in neck and APTL-1 Alnico Pro2 in the bridge). Cosmetically, the guitar is in very good condition. Has some minor marks that are hard to see. Frets are in clean shape with only minimal wear. Weight is 7 pounds, 12 ounces. No case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!

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.
