    Thank you. This one just really hangs together beautifully and has been a go-to guitar. All parts were bought used. The Broadcaster bridge pickup with the the responsive ash body is a winner.

    Love LPB :)

    This is heaven!
    Question: is this a '62RI or a Custom '62RI?

    Still a huge fan of Lake Placid Blue. IMO, Fender does not produce enough models available in Lake Placid Blue. I'm of course thinking about a MIM Standard Telecaster in Lake Placid Blue but... with an unavailable Rosewood fretboard. You have to spend a LOT more than $599 MIM Standard money to get a Fender with those two details, LPB and Rosewood fretboard. $1000 For an American Special Telecaster. I digress...

    I hope to have a Lake Placid Blue Telecaster some day... More pics! :)

    It’s known as a Fender Telecaster Custom '62. This is a "Made in Japan" model TL62B OLB ("Old Lake Placid Blue").

    I understand it, it was "FSR" in 2015, i.e., small run for some dealers, but I got it used. I put on the USA '62 Custom pickups, bridge and electronics myself it comes originally with vintage spec Japan made pickups.

    The build quality is exceptional. I just wanted the USA '62 pups as I'd put them on another build and I really like them and thought they'd be perfect for this model.

    Boy this is a dinosaur thread. Well since I couldn't post a pic way back in 2011 I'll post one now. It's a '95 top loader I converted to a Nashville with a custom set of Onamac pickup. A Tall Blues Tele set and a Full Blues Strat middle. Strat "quack" with a Tele "feel". Also the color of the very first Fender Jazz I ever owned.

    This MIM Standard has become one of my all-time favorites.
