Today, Lawman Guitars is Presenting..
A beautiful single owner MINT, 2013 Fender American Vintage Limited Series '52 Butterscotch Tele...with the awesome Fender Tweed Case…All Case Candy including strap, cloth, repro Fender manual from 1952. What a cool guitar outfit!
Be sure to check out the video demo we did for this awesome Fender Guitar! We did repair the case latch I mentioned in the video. Its good as new now..see pic 16...
We dated it to 2013 in the shop but we took the neck off to be sure of the manufacture date..you can see the correct stamps... See pics
All we did was clean it up and put a fresh set of 9’s on it…the previous owner bought it and left it in the case…. I’ll leave the fine tuning of the setup to the new owner. I didn’t adjust or touch the nut. Let your tech set it up to your preferences. It has only factory dings as the original 1952 guitars would have had. All from the factory if you see them. See pic 17 for explanation of the slightly relic’d Fender finish.
Heres what the internet had to say about these cool guitars....
The following content is related to the March 2013 issue of Guitar World.
If I had a nickel for every time I heard a guitar collector say he wished he had a time machine and a wad of cash so he could go back to the Fifties, Sixties, and Seventies to stockpile a hoard of classic guitars, I’d be able to afford my own collection of vintage axes that would make Billy Gibbons green with envy. With the introduction of its new American Vintage Series guitars, Fender has eliminated the need for a time machine, as these guitars offer accurate reproductions of Fender classics that look, feel, sound and play just like the original models did back when they were brand spankin’ new. Even cooler is the fact that the prices are well within the budgets of most players.
To date, Fender has issued 14 American Vintage guitars, including Stratocaster, Telecaster, Jazzmaster, Jaguar and Jazz Bass models, each based on pristine original examples from benchmark years and duplicated in exacting detail. Fender even restored original tooling and replicated vintage manufacturing processes to make these instruments as close to the real thing as possible. For this we review, I checked out the American Vintage ’65 Stratocaster and American Vintage ’52 Telecaster.
While Fender has offered the stunning ’52 Reissue Telecaster model for quite some time, the American Vintage version is so much like the original that only its minty-fresh appearance reveals that its not from the Fifties. The neck has the same hefty, rounded U-shaped profile commonly found on original ’52 examples, and the featherweight ash body is finished the same light-butterscotch hue instead of the notably darker yellow color found on the reissues. One concession to modern preferences is the pickup wiring, which provides the standard bridge/both/neck pickup settings instead of the original neck bass/neck normal/bridge normal settings, although parts and a wiring schematic are provided for traditionalists, should they want to convert the guitar to the original specs.
It should also be noted that the pickups on all American Vintage models are custom wound to provide period-correct sound and specs. While these specs could vary significantly back in the day, here Fender has chosen the best examples from each period and painstaking copied the details to provide consistency between one example of a model and the next.
Strapping on these guitars and plugging them into a vintage amp is probably the closest thing to a time-machine trip that a guitarist can experience in this lifetime. That elusive vintage vibe is there but in a totally new guitar without years of wear, tear and abuse. If you’ve played great vintage Fender guitars, you’ll recognize these beloved Fender tones immediately. And if those tones have eluded you, these guitars will likely provide the satisfaction you’ve long sought.
Players who aren’t used to vintage guitars may find the ’52 Tele’s radius a bit too round and the frets somewhat small, but this is how a Tele was shipped from the factory back in the day. Fender offers plenty of guitars with modern features, but these models are long-awaited concessions to players who have longed yearned for original specs to return. Picking one up almost psychically puts guitarists into a particular timeframe mindset, as the ’52 Tele begs you to churn out raunchy rockabilly, clucking country or chiming Keef riffs. Simply put, these guitars aren’t just like the real thing—they are the real deal.
The Case is as cool as the guitar. Tweed with Deluxe Red Plush interior… It has all the Hang Tags, Repro Manuals, Fender stickers, cord, Strap, polishing cloth...everything you see...WOW!. See pics…
Sold as-is no returns.. However, I have been hand picking my customers instruments for over 18 years now and they all loved the guitars I found for them. This gorgeous Fender will certainly not be an exception.
Thanks for checking out our cool guitars.
