Country of Manufacture:




1999 Fender American Standard Telecaster. This guitar is in great used condition. It has been heavily played and toured as a part of Bon Ivers live guitar set up. I am their lead Guitar Tech.

There are the standard chips, dings, buckle scratches you would expect to find on any guitar that was actually played, much less toured. I tried to include all of the major dings, chips and scratches in my photos. Under the pick guard is a routed cavity for a neck humbucker Pick-Up. Poorly done, not by me, but not affecting any part if the guitars playability other then what lies beneath.

Pick ups are non original Fender USA Standard Tele pick-ups. I reinstalled some standard Tele PUs as the ones that came with the guitar were junk. I also installed a second string tree on the G and D Strings as we were getting some sitar rattle on the G. Trussrod and bridge saddles are in full working order. Frets are in great shape as well.

This was my personal Tele, and we needed a back up, so I brought this with as we toured. It was used on our Australia leg. You can see it being played starting at 5:30 into this video (all the way stage right, screen left).

The guitar is sold as is, with no reserve, and comes with a sales slip and letter of authenticity from my shop not from Bon Iver. The Tweed hard case I received the guitar in is included in the sale. Once again, I am selling my personal guitar that was used by the band. This guitar was NOT owned by the band or any band member. It is currently in the same condition as it was when it was used on tour. I just want to send it to a new home.

I was on the hunt for a '93-95 Caribbean Mist Green Tele (I thought this was Green when I bought it, it was listed as green), but it's the blue version rather then the Green version I'd been searching for. I have now found my Caribbean Mist Green Tele and have no need for the blue. It's great but I only need one Tele... for now.

Priced to sell not to profit.

I ship UPS Insured only, ground preferred (3-5 days in the US) but should you feel the need to upgrade please let me know. All sales are final. I take PayPal only. I will ship within 48 hours of receiving complete payment. Thanks for looking. Any questions please just ask via the eBay contact the seller email.
