This was one of Fender's revised takes on their vintage reissue series. True to a real 1972, this guitar has three bolts, a maple fingerboard, and Fender wide-range humbucking pickups. Thinline telecasters are known for being much lighter (since they are semi-hollow) and have a bit more of a "rock" tone (true to the original era). This reissue is largely considered to be a great build from among the continually popular modern Fender era. This guitar plays well, sounds great, and comes with it's original hardshell case and goodies. It comes set-up and ready for a new home.
