1970s Made in Japan Lero Telecaster copy with original vibrato.

This Lero Telecaster reminds me of the 1970s Ibanez Tele that I sold a few years back. I still regret parting with that Ibanez.

Lero were made by the same company as Ibanez back then and this one looks to be in great shape. I think though that these sported a thinner body and less than impressive pickups. But this is only based on vague memory.

Anyone own a Lero? What are they like?

  3. My first electric was a lero amost exactly as in the picture above. Cream paintjob with tremelo. I got mine back in the mid 80s from a friend at school for $100. It was never set up, so the action was terribly high and the pickups were very noisy. But I learned my chops on it. Thinking back I wish I could have kept it. If memory serves, the body was slightly thinner than a standard Tele. Of course at the time I didn't know the difference between a Tele and a canoe paddle, so it was perfect. Miss it.
