FENDER Vintage 62 Reissue 60s Relic TELECASTER CIJ / MIJ Ice Blue Metallic 46116

Regular price $950

Sweet '62 with great neck.


This is a beauty of a 1994-95 Fender '62 re-issue Telecaster crafted in Japan. 25 years vintage now, it plays (and sounds) better than many USA Tele's. The blue metallic and creme binding just looks killer. It's been used but not abused so it has that light relic look too, which I really love. Plenty of little edge marks but nothing huge. Little dink on the headstock that was filled in. One mark on the back of the neck at first fret. See pics below. All just adds character in my book and means you don't have to worry about playing the guitar at gigs, etc. These get the vintage thin frets, rosewood fretboard and chunky fat neck profile. Frets show some mild flattening (ask if you want pics!) but still plays good up and down neck. Pickups sound amazing. Just a real standout axe. Nice light 7 pounds, 5 ounces, and very nicely balanced. Just feels good in the hands. Very resonant when played acoustically. Honestly as a dealer I sometimes see one I want to hold back for myself, and this is one of those. No case. (I will include an aftermarket hard case for an extra $50--USA buyers only!). I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.)  I may end auction early if it sells elsewhere. Thanks for looking!

Guitar Setup
My setup on guitars 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. I spray out any pots that are noisy. I 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. I don't claim to be a trained luthier, but I'm able to set guitars/basses for a reasonable out-of-box experience and have had very few complaints. If you're looking for the perfect setup on a used guitar, please expect to take it to a trained luthier who is familiar with your individual playing style and preferences. ps: basses get the same setup minus the new strings. 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.
