Fender Telecaster 1995 MIJ RARE TL-52 DGF Full V Neck Blonde Japan Tele 10829
This is a 1995-96 "U" + 6-digit serial Made in Japan Fender Telecaster in blonde finish. The actual model number found in the neck pocket is TL-52DGF. I have read extensive message board posts and nobody knows what "DGF" stands for. Previous owner modded it with a Duncan hot rail in the bridge, which sounds great.
Most distinctive feature on these is the full V neck with a beautiful satin finish. It’s as chunky as a Fender U neck, but the back is not rounded. It has a pronounced V that can be felt all the way up the neck--unlike Fender’s modern “soft V” necks, where you only feel the V down by the nut. It’s a very unique profile, and will be awesome for some (I love how it feels), but not for others. These do not feel at all like a modern Fender neck—these were made to emulate a guitar made in the 50s--without compromise! The frets are not as thin as some vintage 50s frets I’ve seen. They have some mild flattening (see pic) but plenty of life left.
The guitar is in excellent cosmetic and playing condition, especially for a 27-year-vintage guitar. Pics show a couple of tiny imperfections, but very clean overall. If you're looking for a real throwback vintage-style Tele with a fat V neck that fills the hand, this is your ticket. No case. Weight is very mild 6 pounds, 12 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups/packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking.
What You Get

-- 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.
