Fender ROAD WORN 50s Telecaster 2008 1st Year! Blonde Tele Relic +HSC 92038

Regular price $1,299

This is a 2008 Fender Road Worn Telecaster in Blonde finish in excellent condition with Fender hard case. I can't emphasize enough how important it is this is the first year Fender made the Road Worn Series. The first 2-3 years the series had much more wear and more individual wear patterns, coming much closer to Custom Shop quality.

If you look at recent Road Worns, they are "cookie cutter"--all the wear patterns are exactly the same, and have less wear (to save money). I've bought and sold around 100 Road Worn guitars and I see all the differences as they come through my shop. You are best off trying to get a 2008-2010.

This one displays all the hallmarks of a first year: light checking on the body, heavily worn hardware, fretboard finish worn through, edges of body missing lots of paint. Get one new for $1149 with almost no wear, or pay a little more for this and get a real relic. Frets are A+ and it plays great. Weight is 8 pounds, 2 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks. PS: This is the ACTUAL guitar you will receive. Unlike those superstores where you won't even know what the relic looks like until it shows up!

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 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.
