Fernandes Revival '54 Telecaster 1987 Black

Shipping calculated at checkout.

No sales tax for customers outside California.

This 1987 Fernandes Revival '54 Telecaster is one of the 1980s guitars from Japan that have built a cult following for their positive quality to price ratio. 

The tuners have been replaced on this example, otherwise the guitar is all original with no repairs or issues.  The frets show some wear, and there are some dings as you'll see in the many pics we took, but the guitar is playable as it sits and will not need any work for you to enjoy it for years.  The truss rod was checked to make sure there is room for future neck relief adjustments.

Includes a cool, retro gig bag that just might be the original one that came with the guitar.
