The Thinline Tele that never was, until now.

Warm and inviting, the Thinline Tele tone retains the essential elements of the sound of a Telecaster, with an original twist. The Limited Edition Thinline Loaded Nocaster combines all the elements of a classic Thinline Tele, with a few tweaks for contemporary players. The two-piece body is crafted from ash selected for its weight and grain, and then given a Relic flash coat lacquer finish that gives it the look and feel of a well-loved original piece. The beautiful quartersawn AA flame maple neck features a ’57 V-profile that’s ideal for chord-work, while the 7.25–9.5”- compound-radius fingerboard is comfortable for almost any playing style. The pair of Hand-Wound Loaded Nocaster pickups, including the open-top neck pickup, are packed with pure sonic power and are tied together with Fat ‘50s Tele wiring for the fattest Tele tone possible.

Other features include 3-way switch, 1-ply Black Thinline Tele pickguard, Nocaster bridge with compensated brass saddles for accurate intonation, vintage-style tuning machines with Fender logo, bone nut and round string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
