A beautiful well worked in MIJ Fender A serial ’52 Tele. I was going to keep this one but alas the neck was too thin for my long fingers! Fender have been reusing the A serial which should represent 1985-86 but this guitar had factory Texas specials so it puts it at least after 1992. Fender Japan has also been using A serial bridges on the new Crafted in Japan Teles so how can a guitar have two serials? Well it can’t so buyer beware if searching for real 1980s A serials look for a flat poled bridge pickup for a start.
