The Factory Special Run Hand Stained American Standard Telecaster was released in limited quantities in March 2012. It featured a hand rubbed dark stain finish under a satin lacquer coating. The \wine red stained version featured a rosewood neck.
Only 250 Telecaster were released to the market in 2012, 125 being in the US with 75 heading for Europe and only 16 landing in the UK.
The first 50 were signed by Jeff Allen, who at the time was the Production Manager at Fender Corona California. Factory. Jeff has since left Fender and he now heads up the Custom Shop at Martin Guitar.
These were the last of the American Standard Telecaster’s to be built without the new 2012 revamped contoured body. The American Standards have since been replaced by the American Professional Series.
This truly is a limited, limited edition guitar.
