This beautiful Fender Japan HOT ROD Telecaster in Honey Scotch Blonde was made in 1985 and is in excellent condition for its age and features a beautiful select ash body, maple neck, Seymour Duncan pickups, cloth wired, and compensated brass bridge saddles.
As Bruce Springsteen once said of the Telecaster: "The Fender Telecaster was an economical, no frills, pure workman's tool. Its design was all function. Its sound, thin and hungry, a guitar that lets your fingers do the talkin'...I knew the two guys who played mine before me. I bought it in a local guitar repair shop used - for $185 and never looked back. Teles rule!"
