|1971 Fender Telecaster Thinline
This 1971 Fender Telecaster Thinline in a rare canary yellow finish is quite the find. The semi-solid body guitar sports an f-hole carved over the top and it's hollowed-out cavity gives it a "woody" tone like no plain Tele can! The 2 single-coil pickup configuration supplies the classic tones and delivers a natural warmth in the neck position (great for jazz). The middle position combines both pickups for a mid-range honk that punches you in the face. Last but not least, the lead or bridge position is for cutting thru in razor sharp fashion. Not your average Tele but still retaining the Fender heritage, this guitar would do well in the hands of Jeff Beck or James Burton. The pickguard never stops either and is referred to as mother-of-toiletseat! A one-piece maple neck with a slippery feel offers great playability without that baseball bat grip some older Fenders have. A funky 70's axe for sure, this one plays like a dream.
Specs: 1971 Fender Telecaster Thinline, 2 AlNiCo 5 single-coil pick -ups, 21-fret one-piece maple neck with skunk-stripe along back, Fender flat knobs for vol. and tone controls, early-50's brass 3-way saddle bridge system.
