Between its classic Thinline Tele style and its made-to-rock performance-driven features, this Fender Deluxe Telecaster Thinline semi-hollowbody electric guitar is a modern player's dream come true. Vintage Noiseless pickups deliver classic '60s Tele sound that complements the Deluxe Telecaster Thinline's acoustic resonance, while 4-way pickup switching offers an extended range of tone. Add to that a flat 12" radius fretboard, locking tuners, and added stability, and this Tele is ideal for leads and solos.
At first glance, the Deluxe Telecaster Thinline looks every bit the classic Thinline Tele, but it sports a handful of cool modern twists that you're going to love. For starters, there's the modern 6-saddle bridge, which includes block saddles for added tuning stability. Likewise, locking tuning machines and an increased break angle at the nut both enhance tuning stability as well. Top it off with a contoured neck heel and a flatter-than-average 12" fretboard radius, and the Deluxe Telecaster Thinline practically begs for lead and solo playing.
If you crave a balance of acoustic resonance and solidbody sustain, then this Deluxe Telecaster Thinline is the Tele for you. Its semi-hollowbody design imparts air and acoustic harmonics into your tone, while the solid tone block ensures each note comes through loud and clear. And the reduced weight is a great feature, particularly for marathon gigs and long sessions in the studio.
Get the classic Tele tone you love, without the hum. The Deluxe Telecaster Thinline's set of Fender Vintage Noiseless pickups offers traditional Tele tone, while their stacked Alnico 2 magnet design wards off interference and ground hum. In other words, you get the timeless Tele twang you want, but none of the show-stopping radio and electrical noise you don't. Top it off with 4-way switching that includes a setting for the bridge and neck in series, and you get plenty of tone options to play with.
Light in weight, but not sound, the Deluxe Telecaster Thinline is crafted with timelessly elegant style and authentic Fender tone. Crisp and articulate, with a versatile voice that cuts through a busy mix, this stage-tested design is the ideal combination of modern features and traditional aesthetics. With a little bit of extra 'magic' up its sleeve, this instrument is as flexible as it is distinctly stylish.
These pickups produce all the brilliant pristine, well-defined tone of vintage single-coil pickups, with no hum.
This instrument features a fingerboard radius (the amount of curvature across the width of the fingerboard) that, at 12", is substantially more flattened than both a vintage-style 7.25" radius and a modern 9.5" radius. Feels notably flat even though there’s still slight curvature—great for bending notes without fretting out.
For superior intonation, sustain and ease of adjustment, Deluxe guitars feature modern bridges with upgraded features. This instrument has a string-through-body bridge with block saddles.
This instrument features locking tuning machines for increased tuning stability and easy restringing.
The special four-way pickup switch on this Telecaster Thinline guitar adds a fourth pickup combination—neck and bridge together, in series. Series wiring sets your tone on fire with hotter output and a slight midrange boost.
The most notable hallmark of this modern Telecaster Thinline model is its comfortably lightweight semi-hollow body, which also contributes much to its resonant tonal character and authentically evokes its late-1960s and early-’70s ancestors.
