Fender Custom Shop - Limited Edition 50s Thinline Telecaster Relic - Vintage Blonde

Product ID: P-9031

Model Overview:

Released in 1968 the Thinline Telecaster is a firm favourite of those who have one in their arsenal, and this limited model is designed to answer the question "what would a Thinline have looked like if it was made in the 50's"?

The 50's Thinline Telecaster pairs a two piece Ash body with a Solid Rosewood neck. The whole guitar is reliced; the "Relic" finish is designed to show years of playing with different dings and marks to show different parts of a story, to give your guitar a history from the moment you take it out the case for the first time. 

The neck is Solid Rosewood with a soft 57 v profile giving the palm a truly vintage flavour, however the AAA Rosewood fingerboard is a more modern 9.5 radius which is capped with 6105 skinny jumbo frets giving a more modern feel under the fingers. The pickups are equally unconventional, a Fender Custom Shop Hand Wound Blackguard in the Bridge and a Custom Shop Hand Wound Twisted Tele in the neck show no compromise to tone or tonal variety and balance, these two pickups run to a three way switch which includes Fender's Greasebucket Tone Circuit which retains volume when you roll back the tone control.

Includes a Deluxe Hardshell Case, Strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
