Fender '72 Telecaster Thinline - Natural with Maple Fingerboard

Why We Love This Product!

Thinline Time-machine Tele!

Wanna party like it's 1972? Strap on this Tele and you're on your way. Fender's '72 Telecaster Thinline adds two awesomely distinctive touches to the legendary single-cutaway axe, and you'll love 'em both. Start with the very cool semi-hollow ash body and single F-hole. Looks cool, weighs less, adds an airiness you'll love. You'll also dig the pair of huge-sounding humbucking pickups. What a combination! This crazy-great guitar sounds and looks way more expensive than it is. Get yours now!

You know and love this icon of an electric guitar; from Nashville to New York City to New Orleans to Nor Cal (and everywhere in-between), axe-slingers all over the place swear by the Tele. Why? Start with the history: over a half-century after the first Telecaster flew out of Fullerton, California, this guitar retains essentially the same design. That's doing it right the first time! The classic pickup arrangement, easy switching, comfortable neck shape, and time-tested hardware combine to give you exactly what you want out of an electric guitar, no matter what kind of music you play.

Springsteen plays one. So does Tom Petty. And Andy Summers from the Police. Want to talk twang? Look no further than the Teles strapped to Merle Haggard or the legendary James Burton. Keith Richards brought dozens of rock's most memorable licks to life on a Tele, and Joe Strummer used his Telecaster to blend punk's snarl with smart songcraft. Don't forget Roy Buchanan and Albert Collins; their Teles helped to define electric blues. And, who can forget all those amazing R&B records Steve Cropper put his Telecaster magic on? We're just scratching the surface here, folks... you simply can't go wrong when you strap on a Tele!

Send us your love letter

Darryl, your note of thanks arrived like a gentle wind blowing across the surface of a still pond on a crisp fall morning, stirring the embers of a dwindled campfire encircled by the tents of campers awakening to the sight of a beautiful dawn.
