  • Type: Electric
  • Manufacturer: Fender
  • Model/Stylename: Telecaster
  • Serial Number: T007058
  • Serial Number Location: back of neck, near the body
  • Condition: Very Good
  • Description: This is a 1995 MIJ (Made in Japan) Telecaster Deluxe with Foto Flame finish. It looks like maple, but it's really alder with a basswood cap which is covered with a pretty convincing photographic laminate finish. The neck also has a laminate finish, and a rosewood fret board. This was a pretty inexpensive guitar when it was made, but its quality rivaled that of U.S.-made Telecasters of that time. The body of this Telecaster isn't a flat board like most Teles; it's carved like a Strat, and it even has three pickups with a five-way switch. But it has a Telecaster bridge and a Telecaster-style mounting plate for the switch and volume and tone knobs.
  • Vintage Guitar? No
  • Modifications: Modified
  • Comments: The plate containing the 5-way switch and the tone and volume knobs was installed at the factory in a way that's opposite from the way these plates are installed on most Telecasters; I had someone turn the plate (and the switch) around so it's arranged like most Telecasters.
