    Is there anyone on this group from the UK, that's fairly local to me (SN14), that might be interested in buying my early Indonesian Standard Telecaster?

    1999 is the year when the history of the Indonesian “Standard” Telecaster begins. It appears that these are the first guitars Fender buys in Indonesia. It is also the first year where the “Standard” designation is put on the headstock. These were only made for a few months before subtle changes were made and colours added/deleted.

    The first versions had the “TELECASTER” name visible in a thin font.

    The 1999 new Standard telecaster also has the following features:

    • 21 Fret Maple Fretboard

    • 6 Barrel String-Through Bridge (but also capable of top-load stringing)

    • Sealed Tuners

    • Black/Gold decal, to contrast it with the cheaper Affinity.

    • Features the “Standard” name on the Headstock (for the first time)

    • Ceramic Pickups

    • Metal rectangle jack plate (not plastic as on the Affinity)

    • As they were made in Indonesia by Cor-tek, they had the IC-prefix.

    Because of the limited time the 1999 Indonesian Standard was produced, the following colors are rather rare:

    • 519 British Racing Green

    • 577 Frost Red

    • 591 Galactic Purple

    Mine is in 577 Frost Red and is excellent conditon. I have upgraded it with Vanson Alnico V pups, wax coated 'vintage' wiring, full size pots, and treble bleed. But I still have all of the original parts if required.

    If anyone from the UK is interested then I can supply photos.
