This Tele is light weight, in fantastic condition and ships in its original
Body: The body is a lightweight ash, highly
resonant Thinline semi-hollowbody with a natural finish, tortoise binding and
elegant f-hole. There is a nice multi
ply tortoise pickguard and neck pocket contour for easier high fret access.
Neck: Engineered for fast
playing and effortless position changes, the compound profile neck with a
9.5”-14” compound radius fingerboard is ideal for all playing styles. A modern “C”-shape at the nut, the profile
morphs along the length of the neck to a modern “D”-shaped profile at the
updated neck heel, providing plenty of comfortable support for fret hand
antics. Locking, all short-post tuning
machines provide increased break angle at the bone nut for buzz-free
performance and the one piece maple neck and fingerboard are adorned with
beautiful black abalone fret markers and matching Fender headstock logo. The truss rod wheel is positioned at the butt
end of the neck for easy accessibility when adjusting neck relief. Nut width- 1 5/8” Scale
Pickups/Hardware: The foundation of
the American Elite Series sound, the new 4th generation Noiseless pickups,
combine authentic, vintage-style sound with hum-free performance. The pinnacle of Fender’s noiseless pickup
designs, they generate glistening cleans and fat, overdriven tones that scream
with pure rock ‘n’ roll power. The new
Elite Suspension Bridge with three intonatable brass saddles is a unique design
engineered specifically for the Thinline Telecaster—a screwless mount increases
the vibration transfer, driving the top for nearly endless sustain and lively
Cosmetics: This Tele is in great condition but does have
a few minor dings in the finish if you look for them. They are mostly on the bottom side and the
back. It is also missing the metal
output jack cover but it functions perfectly fine without one and is stable.
Playability: Our in house luthier has just inspected, set up and restrung this guitar
with a new set of 10s and the action is low and easy to play. This Tele feels great up and down the
fingerboard and neck, the body and neck resonate in a really satisfying and
natural way that makes it a truly inspiring guitar.
