1999 Fender CIJ Japan Blue Flower Telecaster Tele Electric Guitar Tweed Case

Sold out. Call for Availability.
Welcome, you are looking at a great piece. This is the Fender Japan Blue Flower Telecaster Electric Guitar. 25.5" scale length. 1.65" nut width. 7 lbs 2oz. The serial here corresponds to 1999-2002.
We recently acquired a cool collection of Paisley & Flower Strats & Teles. So please check them all out in our store.
This Blue Flower is an absolute tone machine- it's a tough decision between this one and the Pink Paisley we have up. They sound almost identical, except this one is slightly lighter resulting in a bit more resonance.
The light weight of the basswood body allows for great natural resonance, adding a nice 'acoustic' depth to the pickups while the medium light weight provides some really nice midrange response.
The dual single coils here have the classic 'Tele' sound for sure.
Plugged into a clean tube amp- Nashville bridge and big warm neck sounds are right at your fingertips. Roll back the tone on the neck pickup and this beauty darkens up for some convincing jazz comp.
These singles take to overdrive very well also. On the quiet side you can go a bit further with your overdrive.
The overdrive sounds here are just incredible- very earthy and dynamically responsive. Big, yet cutting.
Japan has always been known for their comfortable necks and this one is a perfect example. The maple neck here is .85" deep at the 5th fret with an oval C profile. The deep body cutaways allow full access to all 21 frets. Add to that the 7.25" fretboard radius and you have a classic bend feel.
The look here is beautiful- Blue Flower finish, Flower guard, and chrome hardware.
This Tele is in excellent overall condition, a 1/4" scratch on the back in one of the flowers, stress hairlines in the cutaways(pic), and some typical light pot static, but nothing that affects the performance whatsoever.
The frets here are clean- set up with action just 3/32" at the 12th fret low E.
This Tele includes the Fender G&G tweed hardshell case in pics.
This is your chance to get your hands on a fantastic Blue Flower Tele example for the price you want.
