Stringkiller's Telecaster shoot-out.
Guitar n° 4 Fender 1962 Telecaster Custom reissue guitar.
With Seymour Duncan pickups . The Neck PU is a Vintage 54, which was less shrill (to me at least) than the Vintage for Broadcaster and the neck PU is an Alnico II Pro which as the tone chart states is very creamy and smooth.
This is great guitar, very well made and is rightly considered as one of the best Japanese reissues of Classic American Guitars.
Btw Custom just means the white binding around the body.

Fender 62 RI Telecaster Custom neck pickup Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro (58 Seconds) Tasty ! There are two links here as I decide to change the angle to microphone and move the amp without using the standby ! Silly, lucky it wasn't loud.

Fender 62 RI Telecaster Custom headstock (1 minute 10 Seconds) both pickups again >
This Fender 62 RI Telecaster Custom has a perfect neck body joint (1 minute).
The workmanship on this guitar is good. The woods are lovely, the body is light and the pickups can howl. Like all good Telecasters you can take it out with you and get all the sounds you need.The Japenes workmanship on this guiatr is superior to the US workmanship on the Fender Telecaster 52 reissue. With the Barden pickups on this will be fantastic.
This Telecaster (my living room guitar) plays and sounds wonderful.
The Seymour Duncan Pickups are really meaty.
The Neck PU is a Vintage 54, which was less shrill (to me at least) than the Vintage for Broadcaster and the neck PU is an Alnico II Pro which as the tone chart states is very creamy and smooth.
To hear this guitar in concert (May 99) or at The Chateau de Thoiry party. September 1998. Enjoy ;-)
