Fender ’52 Telecaster AVRI American Vintage Reissue 1997 Copper Nitro Finish with COA and OHSC

A rare and beautiful Telecaster. Built 1997 and finished in
Nitrocellulose as opposed to standard lacquer, the guitar includes an early
style Fender Certificate of Authenticity embossed with William C Schultz’ signature,
who was President of Fender Musical Instruments at the time of the build.

Per Fender this instrument was built to true ’52 specs and
you can really feel, see and hear it in this jaw dropping Tele. Included is the
1 MEG Tone Pot and wiring instructions for the early 50’s style tone set up / conversion
(very dark almost no highs, like having the tone rolled all the way off) should
you want to return the guitar to that spec. Also included is a 6-saddle bridge
should you decide to forgo the original style 3 brass saddle layout.

The guitar is in excellent condition, there are some very
tiny dings here and there, but they were so miniscule most proved near impossible
to catch with the camera. There is evidence of pick strike on the pick guard,
but again very minimal.

This gem would be a real prize for any collector or player.
It’s been freshly set up with 9-42 strings and ships in its original Fender
tweed hard shell case.
