FENDER VINTAGE 1985 CONTEMPORARY TELECASTER HSS MIJ Tele Schaller 1 Tremolo 51939


Regular price $799
Description
You're looking at a great Tele--a 35-year-old "E" Series Fender Contemporary Telecaster made in Japan (serial# E551939). Alder body with beautiful Burgundy Mist finish and black headstock. This is a different take on the Tele with an HSS pickup configuration and three mini-switches (on/off each pickup, plus coil split for humbucker). The bridge humbucker allows for more aggressive tones than your average Tele, while the two additional Strat-style pickups allow for lots of variation. Features include a Fender branded Schaller System One locking Tremolo--excellent system with snap in bar and all locking parts present at the nut. Neck is 22 frets, 12" radius, thin D shape (like modern C shape). Fender Japan stamped tuners. Guitar is in great playing shape for its age. I call it cosmetically 8.5/10 condition with jumbo frets in A+ condition. Very few minor marks with one ding on the tip of headstock. No case. Tremolo arm is not original and does not lock, so it hangs free but works. Just been completely detailed and set up. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking! See video demo of similar guitar below.

Guitar Setup
All our setups are done by our in-house trained 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!

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.
