All Fender Custom Shop guitars are works of art, but this particular Thinline Telecaster really stands out from the crowd! Featuring a heavy relic finish, anodized silver pickguard and an elegant double-bound body — it's easily one of the coolest Custom Shop creations we've ever had come through our doors!

It's not just about how it looks though. With its semi-hollow body construction and Nocaster/Twisted Tele pickups, this exquisite guitar has a vibrant and magical tone which really has to be heard to be believed. From vibrant cleans through to spanky, treble-heavy leads — this Thinline Tele covers lots of sonic territory and can easily become your go-to workhorse guitar for the studio or the stage.
