1972 saw the introduction of a new Telecaster Thinline model that took Fender’s venerable workhorse guitar into bold new territory in both sound and style. Most prominently, two big new high-output humbucking pickups designed by famed pickup maker Seth Lover were housed in a curvaceous new pickguard, below which was mounted a new six-saddle Stratocaster bridge.
The Limited Edition ’72 Tele Thinline honors that year’s model, featuring a hollow two-piece select ash body with f-hole and Heavy Relic lacquer finish. The AA quartersawn flame maple neck has a ’60s-style oval-C profile, topped by a 9.5”-radius round-lam maple fingerboard (round-lam rosewood fingerboard on Blue Flower) with 21 narrow tall frets.
The pickups are wound to the
original spec, with 12 adjustable “cunife” (copper-nickel-iron)
magnets—just like the originals—for hum-canceling high output grit.
Other features include aged pearloid pickguard, three-way blade pickup
switch, hardtail Strat bridge (Custom Shop Vintage
Synchronized Strat Tremolo on Blue Flower), Schaller "F" tuners, bone
nut, and wing string trees. Includes deluxe hardshell case,
strap and certificate of authenticity.
