Discussion in ‘ Basses [BG] ‘ started by nsop , Jun 18, Is this a geniune Fullerton reissue P? Tags: fender fullerton help! Jun 18, 1. Nov 15, Copenhagen. This P has been offered me at a decent price. Seller informs me it’s a 62 reissue from 82 neck and pots. Cosmetically it has a bit of wear — it has been stored for some time and apparently not in a friendly environment.

Site Search. This particular reissue came only in blond, two-tone sunburst, and candy apple red metallic. I think the blond was actually the only version technically in keeping with the original. For those who aren’t aware, there were two separate versions of the Candy Apple Red finish used on old Fender guitars. The first was achieved with a metallic sliver base coat, overlaid with translucent red, and the second featured the same translucent red colouring sprayed over a metallic gold base coat.
The red-over-silver version is generally regarded as the more desirable of the two. Probably the most obvious inaccuracy was the wiring arrangement. This reissue had a post electrical setup which gave: 1 bridge pickup alone with the switch in the back position, 2 both pickups together with the switch in the middle, and 3 neck pickup alone with the switch to front. However, a real Tele would have had the previous wiring arrangement.
This gave: 1 bridge pickup alone with switch to back, 2 neck pickup alone with switch to middle, and 3 neck pickup alone through a capacitor for heavy top rolloff with switch to front. The historically-inaccurate wiring on this reissue, however, would not have been an oversight.

Non e’ questo il caso delle chitarre Fender fabbricate in Estremo Oriente, che possono avere entrambe le configurazioni. BASS e J. BASS hanno la giusta spaziatura ampia al dodicesimo tasto stile , mentre le corrispondenti versioni USA hanno i pallini a spaziatura stretta I differenti schemi di numerazione ed i sistemi usati alla Fender dal riassunti anno per anno si applicano solo alle chitarre e bassi elettrici fabbricati in USA quelli veri!
I modelli Fender e Squire costruiti in Giappone e Corea NON sono inclusi nella tabella di datazione, anche se possono avere schemi di numerazione simili. In effetti, a meno che non sia stata manipolata disonestamente, una Fender giapponese dovrebbe avere una piccola scritta adesiva ‘made in Japan’, o sulla paletta o sul retro del manico, vicino all’attaccatura del manico al body. Naturally, all Fender guitars were made in the USA until the Japanese models of late , but if you bought a , or model Strat it was possible to get one with these pickguard electronic assembles from Mexico.
Like the body and neck dates, using serial numbers to date a Fender is not a Esquires, Broadcasters and Telecasters shared a serial number on the headstock or the neck-plate in the case of certain early reissue models.
Up for sale, a Fender American Vintage ’52 Telecaster in exceptional condition and in perfect working order, complete with COA, hangtags, case candy, and tweed case. Produced at the genesis of the highly collectable “Fullerton” era of production, this Tele represents Fender’s first ever attempt to recreate the magic of the original ’52 Telecaster, when “vintage reissue” was a brand new concept in electric guitars.
This initial iteration of the ’52 Telecaster was only available from , as the original tooling from the Fullerton factory didn’t follow Fender when they eventually moved their factory to Corona, CA in the mids. A collector-grade instrument in every respect, and Fender’s first step in offering “modern” recreations of their golden age instruments, this Fullerton-era Telecaster has unique features from a transitional moment. The neck and body are simply stamped ‘VINTAGE’ in the pocket and on the heel, before pencil dating was reintroduced, and the late ’70s-style original instruction manual is simply labeled “Vintage Telecaster.
Tonally, the guitar offers a big, chewy, barking acoustic tone, with the attack of maple and the midrange sweetness and complexity of ash. The sound is smooth and sparkling in the neck position and twangy with an aggressive edge at the bridge. It’s a lively, resonant instrument that, while sparingly played, still has the kind of vibrant, touch-sensitive response one expects with a vintage Fender.
The maple neck has lightly rolled fretboard edges and a bit more shoulder and roundness than one typically expects with a Fullerton neck, while still being a slender C at the nut and tapering gently up the fretboard with a bit more heft.

The guitar has had mods over the years, making it a true players guitar: the guitar has the original pots and pickups, with the neck dating to , the body date however has been obscured. The 3-way switch has been replaced as well as the hardware, and the neck pickup cover was spray painted to match the gold hardware, some paint is visible on the coil winding and also around the route on the body.
The pickguard is now a tortoise shell guard. There is surface marks and light scratching on back of the body, nothing to affect the feel of the guitar.

In late , Fender decided to move to a new numbering scheme for their serialization. The numbers appeared on the pegheads and for the remainder of they had a prefix of 76 or S6 preceding a 5 digit sequence. In , the serialization went to a letter for the decade, followed by a single digit for the year and then 5 to 6 digits.

No one likes it when you forget their birthday and neither does your Fender. Fender was sold to CBS in the first week of January , but already in late mass production was slowly being introduced, which gradually lowered quality and ultimately collectibility.

Although CBS purchased Fender officially on January 3rd , it took some time till the guitars changed though by mid , six months before CBS bought Fender, things were already “on the way down”. By the end of , the general look and feel of the Fender guitars had changed significantly. All collectors feel the quality of their instruments and amps suffered as CBS employed more “mass production” manufacturing processes to the Fender guitars.
The “large peghead” starting in late as used on the Fender Stratocaster was one example of the bad changes to come. The “custom contoured” bodies Fender was famous for no longer were as sculped and sleek. Newer and less attractive plastics were used for the pickguards.
