Fender Japan 1990 TL52-900

1990 Fender Japan TL52-900 blonde blackguard telecaster

Matching numbers with papers!
I dunno … always sounds good with cars but this came with (of course) one of those ridiculous leatherette gig bags that the Japanese seem to go fucking nuts over & in the side pocket apart from there being 2 old strings, a term bar for a strat (which I needed) and an aluminium stop tailpiece for a Les Paul (which I can always use) there was of course these receipt 7 warranty card books which was a nice surprise.
Obviously being 20 years old the warranty had expired but still it was pretty cool.
This one was very blonde and not much butterscotch going on.
Pretty light and of course there was some lacquer burn on the bottom edge but overall …. nothing pants splittingly exciting really while at the same time though being high quality Japanese crafted.

Burny Les Paul Custom RLC-60 Randy Rhoads

Out of all my guitars my white Burny RLC-60 is my favourite.Nothing special just an ’89 with Burny L-102 pickups.Incredibly faded to a nice cream it’s the one with stickers below.

I still have a gas for a maple topped white RLC with a nice big neck so I saw this little number up for auction (an ’83) and figured I’d give it a go.

Wasn’t in the best condition but like the budgie it was cheap so I jumped on it.
sadly it had kind of a very thin neck.
So thin that when I opened it and grabbed it the first time I knew I wouldn’t like it.
Sold it a few weeks later actually.

Different headstock inlays & tuner buttons

Ye olde fret edge binding and frets in not as bad a shape as one would expect

That last smaller inlay …?

Nice tarnished gold worn hardware and that delightful piss yellow colour though not as bad as some I’ve had

Originally they came with gold speed knobs but due to this one not having any I replaced them with whatever I had on hand.I happen to have quite a few gold bells and I don’t like speed knobs.

Non original bridge but still MIJ

RR models had a gold poker chip.This one was rusted to hell and since the switch was broken I just replaced him with a standard black ring
