floral print Telecasters from Fender Japan (official designation TL69-SPL) are quite stunning. Perhaps you'd need to wear a Hawaiian shirt (or more appropriately a silk kimono) whilst playing one, or maybe that would be overkill.
Other than the particularly loud finish on, each of the three designs available are based on a pretty standard Tele with basswood body, one-piece maple neck, the usual two Tele pickups, and 3-saddle Telecaster ashtray-style bridge.
Thanks again to Keith McCreary who has obviously been closely scrutinizing the Fender Japan website.
