Fender Custom Shop Vintage Custom 1968 Thinline Telecaster - 14979

Fender introduced its first semi-hollow electric guitar in 1968, once again appealing to a wider range of players—this time with a radical reworking of its original workhorse, the Telecaster. The Thinline Telecaster body is not only lighter but also more resonant, adding warmth and color to the tone. The 1968 Telecaster Thinline was originally offered in natural ash or mahogany, with a solid center and hollow wings bearing an “F” hole on the upper bout.

This Custom 1968 Tele® Thinline has been spec'd out for a modern player looking for a vintage powerhouse primary guitar! This '68 thinline features a 2-piece mahogany thinline body construction with an Aged Natural finish. The lightly tinted rift-sawn maple neck has a 60's Oval "C" shape neck that fits comfortably in the palm of your hand, topped by a 7.25”-9.5” vintage compound-radius round-lam maple fingerboard with 21 Medium Vintage frets. The hand-wound 1967 Telecaster pickups have three-way switching and modern Telecaster wiring. Other features include a period-correct white pearloid pickguard, Schaller "F" Key Tuners, and wing string tree.

Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap, and certificate of authenticity.
