For sale is this as new Fender Tele In Pink Paisley, dead mint! Made in Japan, absolutely perfect workmanship. Plays like butter with very low action. Sounds like a 60s Tele should. Please reply to classic_co@hotmail.com. Thank you !

Not a '69, surely? An MIJ reissue from the '80s, I would think.

"'69" is no longer a year, but a model number of a re-issue... kind of. Unless those wiley Japanese were WAY ahead of us creeping Westies. If not for this and the like, umm, a Gretch model #1620 would be the "Pope Gregory the 15th" signature git and somebody would have a lot of explaining to do.

I should have realised that. My go-to Tele - built in 2009 - was billed as a '62 Thin Skin.

It's vaguely irritating to me that they now charge a premium price for making them with a degree of care that should be the norm.

These paisley reissues, while they don't quite capture the original shade of pink, are probably superior to those actually made in the '60s.

In the summer of 1969, I had an an original (more of a red paisley) color, ordered and was never delivered to my dealer. I guess they were "hot property" at that time.

That looks like a 2002-02 re-issue. There may be a more recent re-issue that I am not aware of. Edit: I think they’ve just reissued them again in the last few years

I have a mid-80's re-issue. Great guitars, I love mine

Hi there, I have one here in the UK it has the serial number stamped on the bridge... A plus 6 digits. ' Made in Japan ' on the back of the neck where it meets the body. Luv it, got it way back in the late 80's. I like Fender Japan guitars. Top Drawer.

When CBS dropped Fender like a hot potato and Fender had no clue what it was going to do, they had Fenders made in Japan at a time that rivaled if not surpassed the MIA's. Then there were Japan Fenders that were for export of lesser quality to not compete with MIA's, and Fenders made for the Japan market only that were as good as MIA's.

I think you've gotta be good if you step on stage with a pink guitar!

Not a 69 but for sure worth 700.. Hell I'd buy it if I didn't have so many guitars. Worth it in my eyes.
