2016 Fender Custom Shop 1969 Thinline Telecaster + OHSC

Fender |  2016telethin

A very authentic body finish for a CS Tele in probably the best colour combination of a 68 Tele you can get. All trimmed off with a cool, factory fitted TV Jones pickup. How can one resist....

Sorry, this item was sold out.

The Telecaster thinline was one of the rare success stories of the early CBS era at Fender, and this Custom Shop recreation does a brilliant job of capturing the essence of those guitars. We think the sunburst finish on this model looks terrific and very close to the only real sunburst 68 Thinline we have ever had here. The addition of the TV Jones pickup in the neck position (factory fitted by Fender) gives this a unique look and sound.

Condition is excellent, and all the case candy is present! A great sounding guitar with a ton of mojo, we can’t recommend this enough…

Here’s what Fender have to say…
