Fender's Japanese division serve up some wonderful guitars, and this '70s Telecaster Thinline is no exception! Part of the Traditional Series, this exquisite instrument has an alluring range of vintage-inspired appointments — combining iconic looks and "Golden Era" specs with renowned Japanese craftsmanship.

The Fender Made in Japan Traditional '70s Telecaster Thinline offers a truly special "time capsule" feel and sound that old-school players will simply adore. But contemporary guitarists are sure to find its light semi-hollow construction and dual-humbucking pickup configuration appealing — making it a fantastic workhorse for the stage and the studio!

Key Features

  • Semi-Hollow Ash Body — This mix of body design and timber gives the Telecaster Thinline a vibrant, airy voice with exceptional resonance and sustain.
  • Bolt-On Construction — Produces the "snappy" note response synonymous with all Fender instruments. Sports time-honoured 3-bolt neck joint/plate that '70s Fenders are famous for!
  • "U"-Shaped Neck — Classic profile provides comfortable playability with its girthy, period-correct shape.
  • Vintage Frets — Smaller fret-wire gives your fingers reassuring contact with the fingerboard and allows you to play with plenty of feel and control.
  • Fender Wide Range Humbuckers — Originally designed by legendary pickup innovator Seth Lover in the early '70s. Deliver a high-fidelity tone with clear highs, punchy mids and robust lows.
  • Bone Nut — Low-friction material minimises unwanted tuning slips and enhances sustain.
  • Vintage "F"-Stamped Tuners — High-quality, old-school tuning machines allow for precise string pitching.
  • Included Gig Bag — Will keep the guitar protected against knocks on the road!
