Squier Vintage Modified '72 Telecaster Thinline review
Fender Cabronita Telecaster - Wikipedia
The Fender Telecaster Thinline is a semi-hollow guitar made by the Fender company. It is a Telecaster with body cavities. Designed by German luthier Roger Rossmeisl in , it was introduced in and updated in by replacing the standard Telecaster pickups with a pair of Fender Wide Range humbucking pickups , bullet truss-rod and 3-bolt neck. The design was originally an attempt to reduce the weight of the solid-body Telecaster guitar, which had become ever heavier throughout the s 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 have been many different versions of the Telecaster Thinline over the years, although the original two are more recognizable. The version has two standard single-coil pickups and a mahogany body, while the version, based on the Fender Telecaster Deluxe , has two Fender Wide Range humbucking pickups and a natural swamp ash body.
