Lightweight and Powerful The body on the Fender '72 Telecaster Thinline is made from ash, and carved into a semi-hollow body design. In the early '70s, Fender began experimenting with different weight-reliefs in their Telecasters, and the '72 Thinline reflects a balance of carving specifications that modern day engineers feel achieves a tonal "sweet spot." The 6.5-pound weight also means that this guitar can be held and played longer, with less fatigue to the player.
Classic Specs on the Neck The neck and fingerboard on the '72 Telecaster Thinline are made from maple, with a gloss urethane finish. The neck shape is Fender's distinctive "U" design with a fingerboard radius of 7.25 inches. The scale length is 25.5 inches and there are 21 vintage sized frets easily accessible all the way up the neck. A synthetic bone nut measuring 1.650 inches across ensures precise string lay in combination with the 3-bolt Micro-Tilt neck design.
A Classic Pickup, Updated The Fender Wide Range Humbucker was designed by Seth Lover for a number of Fender's various Telecaster models in the early 1970s. Production ceased in 1979 when these models were discontinued, but numerous reissues appeared over the years. The pickups in the '72 Telecaster Thinline reflect a thoughtful update of the original Seth Lover design that brings greater clarity and punch than most other humbucking pickups on the market. Their tone is fat and especially pronounced, given the semi-hollow body design and lightweight profile of the Thinline. Overall, they have a smooth, warm tone that suggests a vintage sound. At the same time, they can also deliver a bite and sustain that far exceeds the single-coil pickups one finds on many Telecasters. Wide Range, indeed!
Top-of-the-Line Hardware The bridge on the '72 Telecaster Thinline is a 6-saddle vintage-style strings-through-body hardtail design. The hardware is attractively finished in chrome and the tuning machines bear the vintage Fender "F" stamp. The pickguard is a rich 4-Ply white pearloid. Knurled flat-top control knobs finish the vintage appointments on this killer instrument. A deluxe gig bag is included.
