From 1984 to 1987 Japan made re-issues are as historically accurate as can be. I should know, as I’ve owned both the original American made 60’s guitars that they are modeled after and the re-issues that I collect now. As Fender ceased US production in the mid 80’s to move from Fullerton to Corona, CA, the Japanese re-issues were shipped here to meet demands. Pictured here are 3 Tele’s from that era. The red ’85 is new to me and is very hot with Schaller pickups and a 6 piece heavy mass bridge that rings true.
