This beauty is is an American Vintage Reissue limited "Designer Edition", built especially for Guitar Center. I believe it was built around the year 2000. It's very similar to a standard American Vintage '62 Reissue, except for the very striking quilted maple caps on the front and back. All original, with the exception of a 4-way switch and Callaham compensated saddles.

I had my friend, Russ Blake of The 12th Fret in Portland, OR set it up for me, so it plays like a dream! The neck profile is very comfortable "not chunky" and the frets are the vintage style. I believe the radius is 7 1/4".















Both the Guitar and G&G case are in very nice 9/10 condition!

$1800.00 shipped to the lower 48 states. Or, pick it up in person for $1700.00. I'm currently in Woodland, WA just north of Portland, OR. I can accept PayPal (friends and Family, or add 3%) USPS money order, or personal check (if you don't mind waiting until it clears).

your guitar MAY be a 2012 as i have a tele from 2012 that starts with V12 also. you can probably check the serial on fender's site.

good luck with your sale of a beautiful guitar.

play music!

Michael,

Thanks for your input and kind words.

I took a look at the Fender site and from what I can gather, there should be a US proceeding the 12 followed by 6 digits to indicate a 2012 built guitar. However, according to what I read, this would apply to a guitar other than an American Vintage Series, which still seems to use the V followed by 5 or 6 digits.

https://support.fender.com/hc/en-us/articles/212774746-How-can-I-find-out-when-my-American-made-instrument-was-manufactured-

It seems a bit confusing to me, because of what you said about the serial number of your guitar. I'm the first to say that I'm certainly no expert on Fender guitars. I think I bought this guitar used around 2012 or so. I have a feeling that it was built a few years prior to that.

Someone I consider knowledgeable told me he thought my guitar was built in 2000. I guess the only way to know for sure would be to pull the neck and look at the date stamp.

Lynn, I think you have the specs and date of this instrument correct. Fender did indeed make a limited run of '62 Reissue Telecaster Customs with a quilted maple cap for Guitar Center. This V + 125xxx serial number roughly corresponds to an American-made Vintage Reissue (AVRI) made around 2000 or so, although there is not an exact correspondence between year and serial number. I believe they used the last two digits of the year (roughly) in the later American Vintage (AV) series - I think that started around 2011. I believe the serial numbers of the AV series are V followed by 7 digits - I have two 2012 AV Strats with V12xxxxx serial numbers. I've seen quite a lot of these from various years.

A little bit of research indicates that there were 125 of these particular version Tele Customs made. Here's another for sale on reverb as we speak - https://reverb.com/item/34874437-fender-custom-telecaster-2000-american-designer-edition-quilted-maple - there are quite a few discussions about these guitars online.

Nice Tele! I have a soft spot for '62 RI Telecasters.

Hi Jim Cooley,

The entire Portland, Oregon region is snowed in right now and this guitar is in storage in a climate controlled locker about 30 miles away from where I am living currently. Things are supposed to improve on Wednesday though. I'll be happy to go there to get the measurements you've asked for as soon as it is practical.

I researched this model and it looks like the nut width should be 1.650" but I can't find the string spacing spec. Perhaps someone more knowledgeable will chime in and post something.

Lynn,

Thanks for your reply and call. I apologize again for missing this yesterday. It probably had something to do with the weather here. That's the best excuse I can come with on short notice, anyway.
