Fender's Limited Edition Knotty Tele (Telecaster) Thinline delivers a jaw-dropping performance and presentation. The chambered semi-hollowbody features a beautiful pinewood top that's got more knots than a rock-climbing boy scout. Both the body and neck, the latter of which is crafted from a choice cut of premium AA birdseye maple, have been roasted to maximize resonance and minimize weight. The result is a great-playing Thinline Tele that's as big on character as it is tone. Speaking of tone, the Knotty Tele comes equipped with a set of Loaded '51 Nocaster pickups with Fat '50s wiring for juicy cleans and a twangy bite. Factor in a AAA rosewood fingerboard, tortoiseshell tuning keys, and Cabronita-style 4-screw pickguard, and the Fender Limited Edition Knotty Tele Thinline from Music Experience comes primed to please.

    Roasted Pine Thinline body

    The Knotty Tele features a chambered pine body that's been roasted to draw out the full tonal and cosmetic potential within. The roasting process not only removes excess moisture to maximize resonance, but it also caramelizes the exterior of the wood to create a beautifully rich look. The Knotty Tele's Thinline body helps to keep weight to the bare minimum. And paired with its Cabronita pickguard and flawlessly flawed wood top, the Fender Knotty Tele makes a big splash in a live performance setting.

    You've never played a Tele neck quite like this one

    The neck is one of the most important aspects of any stringed instrument. That's why the Fender Limited Edition Knotty Tele features a flawless neck made from roasted AA birdseye maple — a wood so prized that it's usually delegated to premium guitar tops. If this neck's figuring doesn't bowl you over, its playability surely will. Classic Tele fans will love the Knotty Tele's '60s-era Oval "C" profile. And this guitar's round-lam AAA rosewood fingerboard looks as great as it feels.

    Hand-wound single-coil pickups dish out classic Tele tones

    The Knotty Tele's Loaded '51 Nocaster pickups feature a period-correct design and exhibit the tight low end and clear, balanced midrange you'd expect from a vintage '50s Tele. The neck pickup is punchy and defined. And the bridge pickups twangs like nobody's business. Both of these single-coil pickups have been hand-wound to ensure the highest quality possible. The Knotty Tele comes complete with a familiar 3-way switch and Fat '50s Tele wiring to minimize treble loss when rolling back the volume knob.

    What Fender Custom Shop Says...

    The Artisan Knotty Pine Tele® Thinline features a combination of the finest hand-selected woods, custom components and master craftsmanship only found in the Fender Custom Shop. A chambered and roasted pine body and knotty pine top with f-hole deliver steadfast tone with enduring resonance, all with the exquisite look of brown-shell top binding and rope purfling. A roasted 2A birdseye maple neck with round-lam rosewood fingerboard features a ’60-style oval “C” back-shape, 9.5” fingerboard radius and 21 narrow tall frets. Hand-wound Loaded Nocaster® pickups feature three-way switching and Fat ’50s Tele® wiring, which creates stronger tone with a transparent bloom and minimizes treble loss that typically occurs when rolling back volume. Other features include a brown-shell Caballo Tono pickguard, ’58-’63 Tele bridge with compensated RSD saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and a wing string tree. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
