Fender Thinline '72

Calvin G.
The Fender Telecaster Thinline is an electric guitar made by the Fender company. It is a Telecaster with body cavities. Designed by German luthier Roger Rossmeisl in 1968, it was introduced in 1969 and updated with a pair of Fender Wide Range humbucking pickups, Bullet truss-rod and 3-bolt neck fixing in 1972. The design was originally an attempt to reduce the weight of the solid-body Telecaster guitar, which had become ever heavier throughout the 1960s due to the dwindling supply of the light ash wood Fender had formerly used. The f-hole and reshaped pickguard are the most apparent visual clues to its construction. There are now two versions of the Telecaster Thinline. The '69 version has two standard Telecaster pickups and a mahogany body, while the '72 version, based on the Fender Telecaster Deluxe, yields two Fender Wide Range pickups and a solid natural swamp ash body. Both guitars are made in Mexico and Japan as a part of the Classic Series of guitars and basses, followed by higher-end American-made Factory Special Run (FSR) versions from the Fender Custom Shop in 2005. #72_reissue #cool_guitar #dream_guitar #electric #electric_guitar #electric_guitars #Fender #fender_guitar #Fender_Telecaster #Fender_Telecaster_Thinline #Fender_Telecaster_Thinline_72 #fender_thinline #Fender_Wide_Range_pickups #Golden_age_of_Fender #guitar #guitar_electric #guitars #high_rank #humbucker #humbuckers #instrument #instruments #music_instrument #musical_instument #string_instrument #stringed #tele #tele_thinline #telecaster #thinline
