A very very rare one here. You are looking at an absolutely stunning left-handed fully bound Custom ’62 Reissue Alder/Maple Telecaster (TL62BLH-TX). The is as good as it gets for Fender Japan Telecasters so expect awesome build quality with top specs. It is from the 1997-1998 period (CIJ A-Serial) This is a killer Lefty Tele in stunning factory Candy Apple Red on fully bound alder body. We don’t see many lefty ’62 customs in this colour. There is some really nice alder grain showing through the body and the maple streaking on the neck is drop dead gorgeous. The 7.25 radius Indian rosewood fingerboard is dark with very dense grain (I swear the Leftys get all the best tonewoods)! Anyway the binding is a nice cream colour and it has a 3-ply cream scratchplate, 3 saddles, A-Serial Pat Pend. Fender Stamped bridge with 3 spiral saddles and original USA made Texas Special pickups which sound sublime. There are no issues at all. The neck is dead straight, truss rod fine and plenty of life left in the frets. A few smaller bumps ad scuffs etc as you’d expect from such an old Tele. Weight is good at 3.7kg. Complete with period correct Fender Japan softcase and original documentation including booklets and original (expired) Fender Japan shop warranty card which has the guitar’s corresponding engraved bridge plate serial printed on. Very handy for authenticity purposes if you every want to sell in the future. A rare Japanese Fender lefty Custom ’62 with all corresponding documentation.
