Well built Japanese made Standard Fender Tele with a toploader bridge. This means that instead of the strings being threaded through from the underside of the body as per standard Telecasters, the strings on this one are fitted through the rear of the bridge.
Starting in late 1958, Fender introduced a combined bridge/tailpiece with three threaded steel saddles and strings terminating at the ridge on the back of the base plate rather than going through the body. This reverted back to the “string through body” setup in 1960.
While string through body Teles are the norm, the rare original top loader versions have quite a following. Enthusiasts say they have more pop & bite to the tone, and slightly less string tension which some players prefer.
