Fender Japan Hybrid 50s Telecaster Charcoal Frost Metallic

Why we love it

Fantastic build, cool color, great hardware and electronics, killer tone, rare in North America. What’s not to like?


This guitar is in Excellent condition and shows very minor signs of prior use. There is a tiny scuff on the front of the guitar near the strap button, and a very tiny chip at the edge of the lower cutout side of the neck pocket. It was tested upon arrival to ensure everything works and that the neck is in good condition. Electronics function as intended with no issues. Frets show very minor signs of wear in the cowboy chord zone, but nothing that impacts setup or playability. There is minor oxidation on the brass bridge saddles. The neck shows no signs of warping or waviness and has been set up for optimal relief. The truss rod is in good working order with plenty of adjustment left in both directions. The guitar is currently set up for medium action but let us know if you have setup preferences prior to shipping. Intonation and pickup height have also been set.


The Hybrid series combines Vintage styling with modern features and is a well thought out build overall. Made in Japan, the Hybrid series is a great choice for players who want a vintage inspired guitar with modern playability and specifications. The Hybrid Tele follows vintage 1950s specs such as 5-point 1 ply black pickguard, edged bridge plate with brass saddle, and rounded dome knobs. Modern appointments include locking pegs and, 9.5-inch radius fingerboard with narrow tall frets, and 4-way pickup selector switch that allows series or parallel wiring. Equipped with American Vintage 58 Tele pickups and US-made CTS pots. This combination of excellent made in Japan build quality and US made components adds up to classic Fender tone and feel at a great price. This guitar weighs 7 pounds and includes the original Fender gig bag.
