Pre Owned 1999 Fender Custom Shop Bajo Sexto Telecaster 2-Tone Sunburst With OHSC
Here at Truetone Music, we are always on the lookout for unique and rare instruments. So when this Fender Custom Shop Bajo Sexto Telecaster walked in the door, we were especially excited. This is a very rare bird, and very hard to find. The Custom Shop made just a few of them, and we've never seen one on the open market, at least not for many years.
Built in 1999, this one has gone through time barely being played, so it's in excellent shape. There's a small ding on the bottom horn, but other than that, it's just some scratches, and nothing that impacts the playability. The techs in our repair shop have vetted and set it up to play perfectly. It comes with the original hardshell case (especially important for an instrument like this), as well as the Certificate of Authenticity, and the unused bridge cover still in plastic.
The Custom Shop Bajo Sexto Tele features a long scale length of 30.25", relatively thin nut width of 1.70" for easy playing, and is quite light (7.6 lbs) considering the size of the instrument. It has a very smooth and easy to play maple neck with a 60's Oval C neck shape, measuring a 1st fret depth of .836" and 12th fret depth of .980". As long as it is, the neck is not a challenge. Whether seated or standing, this thing is super comfortable to play.
It has the traditional Telecaster layout and a set of Custom Shop pickups that are very balanced - they sound great clean, which is how most people would use this instrument, but also suit variety of tones and overdriven/distorted sounds perfectly. We were really impressed with how versatile this Bajo Sexto Tele is.
The vibe says "early 50's Tele" with a 2-Tone Sunburst finish, maple neck and 5-hole white pickguard. But it's so much more than that.
If you're looking for a unique Tele that provides something different, or have been out looking for one of these Bajo Sexto's specifically, this is the one. Grab it before it's gone - we don't know if we'll ever seen another.
