Don't let the fact that this Fender Thinline wasn't made in the good 'ol USA fool you, as it's a cool Telecaster with good electronics and a great neck. If the Telecaster vibe and tone appeals to you but the weight of most of them turns you off, this one weighs under 6 1/4 lbs, which can make a real difference to your shoulder and your back. Workmanship is excellent throughout, in fact the Japanese-made Fenders from this era are often considered to be of equal, or better, quality than many USA Fenders of the same era (and they sell for about the same prices).
