A superb reproduction of the original Rosewood Telecaster from the late '60s / early 70s, these gorgeous guitars were made in Japan for about a decade, between 1986 & 1996. This is an early one & features a rosewood neck with maple skunk stripe; rosewood fingerboard & rosewood "sandwich" body - you can't get any more rosewood than that! At 9 lbs 9.5 oz she's solid through & through, but what an incredible sound - classic Tele tones & clear as a bell!
Cosmetic Condition: Really nice shape for its age actual with some mild wear - various minor nicks, chips, dents & dings; scratches & some finish blemishes. There's a little bit of separation between the "sandwich" top & back in the bass-side of the body waist. It's purely cosmetic & does not affect playability or sound quality. Overall the guitar has a great look to it with a cool vibe & gorgeous patina.
Neck: C-shape rosewood neck with maple skunk stripe. Beautiful rosewood fingerboard with cream dot inlays. Vintage-style frets show a little bit of wear, but have plenty of life in them. Vintage-style nickel tuners are in perfect working condition. 1 5/8" nut width; 25 1/2" scale length. Neck is straight & truss rod is in good working condition.
Body: Solid rosewood "sandwich" body with 3-ply black pickguard. String-thru bridge with adjustable "barrel" saddles. Guitar weighs 9 lbs 9.5 oz.
Electronics: Lace Sensor neck single coil - 11.05K ohms; Seymour Duncan bridge single coil - 7.19K ohms. Master volume & tone controls with knurled dome knobs; 3-way toggle switch. All electronics are in perfect working condition.
Case: Hardshell case included.
