    if i remember correctly, the neck spec is described as "oval type".
    im wondering, how does the 62 RI neck compared to an american standard neck?\

    I own a '93 Tele. It's a '72ri with the bold '70's logo, natural sen (japanese) ash body. over the years I replaced the bridge pickup with an old Bill Lawrence and did the Keef thing to the neck with a SD alnico2 pro. She weighs half a ton, doesn't really twang but sustain for days.
    Also owned a '62 ri made in 90-91. Traded her for an amp:oops:. I STILL regret that deal.
    I'll take a Japanese Tele over any other off the rack Fender in a heartbeat.

    My 2004 Antigua Telecaster is pretty darn nice :D

    As is my Sunburst '51 Precision Bass that I picked up for an amazing price!

    You didn't happen to buy this guitar off a guy named Bret in Nashville, did you? If so, I used to jam on this guitar from time to time when I was in high school.

    Oh, forgot my Fender CIJ TL-68 "Beck" Telecaster.
    "Beck" as in the manga/anime about a rock band where the main character uses a guitar that looks a whole lot like a '68 Telecaster. They never specify whether it was a real one, a reissue or just something that looks similar. I would imagine it's a reissue. In any case, they did a special version of this reissue with the manga's/anime's logo on the back of the headstock.

    It is a great guitar also!

    Ta - it's a Japan domestic model, neck is brilliant, bridge pickup also great. I love it to bits.
