Summary: Infusing the esteemed semi-hollow design with Fender’s latest innovations, the American Elite Telecaster Thinline is for the 21st-century guitarist who embraces innovation in both instrument design and their own playing. Genuine and amazingly flexible Thinline tone, the latest technologies and classic Fender style work in harmony to create an easy-playing instrument you won’t want to put down. This Tele is light weight, in fantastic condition and ships in its original hardshell case.
Body: The body is a lightweight ash, highly resonant Thinline semi-hollowbody with a natural finish, tortoise binding and elegant f-hole. There is a nice multi ply tortoise pickguard and neck pocket contour for easier high fret access.
Neck: Engineered for fast playing and effortless position changes, the compound profile neck with a 9.5”-14” compound radius fingerboard is ideal for all playing styles. A modern “C”-shape at the nut, the profile morphs along the length of the neck to a modern “D”-shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of comfortable support for fret hand antics. Locking, all short-post tuning machines provide increased break angle at the bone nut for buzz-free performance and the one piece maple neck and fingerboard are adorned with beautiful black abalone fret markers and matching Fender headstock logo. The truss rod wheel is positioned at the butt end of the neck for easy accessibility when adjusting neck relief. Nut width- 1 5/8” Scale length- 25½”
Pickups/Hardware: The foundation of the American Elite Series sound, the new 4th generation Noiseless pickups, combine authentic, vintage-style sound with hum-free performance. The pinnacle of Fender’s noiseless pickup designs, they generate glistening cleans and fat, overdriven tones that scream with pure rock ‘n’ roll power. The new Elite Suspension Bridge with three intonatable brass saddles is a unique design engineered specifically for the Thinline Telecaster—a screwless mount increases the vibration transfer, driving the top for nearly endless sustain and lively response.
Cosmetics: This Tele is in great condition but does have a few minor dings in the finish if you look for them. They are mostly on the bottom side and the back. It is also missing the metal output jack cover but it functions perfectly fine without one and is stable.
Playability: Our in house luthier has just inspected, set up and restrung this guitar with a new set of 10s and the action is low and easy to play. This Tele feels great up and down the fingerboard and neck, the body and neck resonate in a really satisfying and natural way that makes it a truly inspiring guitar.
