What's a good price on these?
Here in Italy are rare. Prices -when rarely pop up- are between 900 and 1100 Euros
Hi, I wrote to Mk70, Michele, and he confirmed still has the 8502!
The pickups were substituted, but he kept the originals (not for sale....).
Favor to ask of someone owning an 8502 and a set of calipers: I'd like to get a measurement of 1st and 12th fret depths.
Reason I ask is that I owned 2 8502s in the past and like the neck. SO now that I am searching another Telecaster / Nocaster, I am hoping to get a similarly-spec'ed neck.
Hi there! I'm still looking for a blonde 8502. If you are selling, feel free to PM me.
I measured mine a year back:
I have a feeling they aren't all equal, though. I've never felt a Tele neck exactly the same as this one.
Probably too late for you on this but if you are (or anyone is) still looking for an 8502 there should be one at the GC in Carle Place, Long Island ny. I bought it online but ended up sending it back. What a great guitar. But it was just too heavy.
I've had this Tele for probably 15 years (or so) but I dont know what model this is... Trying to do some research and am now wondering if it is a 2003 model 8502 or a '52 reissue...or something else... ? Is anyone able to identify it? Thanks! Andy
It’s NOT an 8502. String tree in wrong place, saddles wrong. 8502 has 6 saddles , not 3. Not sure what it IS , but I can rule out 8502. Hope this is of some use ....
Μπράβο. Βιβλία ελληνικά !
I recently purchased a 2005 in excellent shape, two-tone SB, ‘52 style U-neck but 9.5 radius and larger frets... almost the ideal guitar for me. Only “drawback” is it is extremely heavy (haven’t weighed) but I’m not playing out (who is these COVID days) so it really doesn’t matter- it sounds amazing even Unplugged thanks to thick neck & Ash body. Thanks for this Forum.
I just acquired an ‘05 honey blonde 8502. It has Fralin high output pickups and the originals separate. I’ve read that the original pickups are real good I was wondering about using them. Can anyone describe the tonal difference to me? Thanks
Congrats on the new 8502.
I think you owe it to yourself to try the original MV's if you have them. Pretty accurate flat pole black guard similar to the OV's or Nocasters. They are very well liked and held in high esteem by the Brothers of the 8502. Unless the Fralins are alnico III I doubt they are even close.
Pretty stoked to tell you I've just bought a blonde 8502... Wow, it took me ages. I should get it next week. Serial number Z3135220. Here it is.
