Vintage vibe meets modern cool with this limited-edition lightweight Tele fantasy.

Every year, Fender creates special limited-edition instruments for the NAMM show. For 2018, one featured guitar is this '50s Telecaster Thinline — a fantasia guitar that would have existed if the Tele Thinline had been developed in 1958 instead of 1968. Combining hand-wound '50s vintage-style pickups and heavy-relic finish with a lightweight chambered Thinline body and modern wiring, complete with the popular Greasebucket tone circuit, this is a guitar to round out any Telecaster lover's collection.

  • Relic-finished chambered ash body
  • 25.5" scale, 1-piece quartersawn '57 soft-"V" maple neck with 21-fret, 9.5" radius maple fretboard
  • Handwound Tele Texas Special (neck) and Broadcaster (bridge) pickups, 3-way switching with Greasebucket tone circuit
  • Vintage-style through body stringing 3-saddle bridge, vintage-style tuners

The perfect addition to your collection—order your '50s Thinline Tele today.
