The ’60s Tele Thinline experience

Certain electric guitars are credited with shaping modern music, and the 1960s Fender Telecaster Thinline is certainly one of the most iconic of them all. With this Fender American Original ’60s Telecaster Thinline, you get vintage tone and looks, along with modern playability. From the 3-saddle bridge and vintage-style tuners to the bound body and 3-ply parchment pickguard, this Tele is a smooth performer with unmistakable ’60s vibe.

Custom set of Tim Shaw designed pickups

The discerning guitarists at Music Experience know that to get a real vintage sound from a guitar, you need to start with great pickups — and the ones on the Fender American Original ’60s Telecaster Thinline were designed by Fender Custom Shop pickup guru The Tim Shaw. These single-coils nail all the classic tones, and then some. You’ll love the clear, punchy sounds, which are perfect for playing country, blues, jazz, rock, or pop.

Vintage appointments with modern playability

The distinctive pickguard shape, single F-hole, 3-saddle bridge, and F Logo stamped tuning keys cover the vintage side of things. But this guitar’s modern 9.5" fingerboard radius gives you a comfortable playing surface that allows for wider string bends than the 7.25" radius of vintage guitars. While being rounded enough for comfortable chording, this radius is perfect for double-stop bends, wide vibrato, and even bends over a whole step. And the modern neck shape feels just right, smoothing the way for fleet-fingered fretting.

What Fender Says...

Beloved by country players and indie rockers alike for its semi-hollow warmth, rounder twang and elegant appearance, the Telecaster® Thinline is a classic in its own right within the venerable Telecaster lineup. The American Original 60s Telecaster Thinline recreates this sophisticated six-string with tastefully modernised playability. Tim Shaw designed 60s Telecaster Thinline pickups deliver authentic late sixties Tele tones, while the 21 Vintage Tall frets and a 9.5” radius contribute to comfortable playability. Other touches include original-era body radii, vintage-style hardware - including F logo tuners, vintage-style hardshell case and a lacquer finish that lets the wood breathe naturally with resonant tone, and wears in a distinctively appealing way.

Semi-Hollow Body

The lightweight semi-hollow ash body is comfortable for extended gigging and adds a warmth and resonance unique to Telecaster Thinline models.

Lacquer Finish

The nitrocellulose lacquer finish not only lets the body breathe with its true tonal character, it also ages and wears in a distinctively personal way.

Tim Shaw Designed 60s Thinline Pickups

American Original instruments feature specially voiced pickups crafted to reproduce the authentic sound and performance of individual model years.

"Medium C" Neck Shape

Remarkably comfortable, the “Medium C"-shaped neck profile is sculpted for a period-correct playing feel that’s comfortable for all players.

Vintage-Accurate Body Radii And Neck Profile

Original-era fans can rest assured every curve and line of the body and neck are accurate to the historic originals.

Fingerboard & Frets

This 9.5”-radius fingerboard is slightly flatter than a vintage-style 7.25” radius, providing a comfortable fret-hand feel. Vintage-tall frets make it easier to bend notes without fretting out.
