The Made in Japan International Color Series brings back a beloved and unique collection from Fender history that had a limited production run over four decades ago. This captivating International Color collection, originally introduced in 1981, featured '70s-style appointments and a fresh range of colors inspired by exotic and alluring locations. Today, these International Colors are highly sought after by collectors due to their rarity and exotic charm. Now, in a limited release, the Made in Japan International Color Series combines the vibrant vintage Fender vibe with the craftsmanship of Japan, resulting in a truly special offering.
Deviating from the traditional design, these guitars feature resonant basswood bodies, maple or rosewood fingerboards with a 9.5" radius, and medium jumbo frets to accommodate adventurous playing styles. The neck follows the '70s "U" shape, complete with a convenient "Bullet" style truss rod nut, "F" Stamped ™ tuners, and the serial number displayed on the headstock face, just like the original. Equipped with vintage-style single-coil Tele® pickups and a 3-saddle bridge with chrome barrel saddles, these guitars deliver the iconic Fender tone and feel.
With its appealing aesthetics, exceptional playability, and authentic vintage Fender tone, the Made in Japan International Color Telecaster® is a retro beauty that incorporates select refinements for an incredibly comfortable playing experience.
