Fender Japan Traditional Series '69 Telecaster Thinline Natural 2017
Fender Japan Trad '69 Tele Thinline, natural finish, 2017. This stunner is nought but a year old, a mere babe! As such, there's barely a mark on it and the lovely gloss finish is pristine. The chambered mahogany body lends a little extra warmth and roundness to the 'Tele twang', it's got a lovely airy tone with a tight, defined attack and a delicate sweetness. This model is pretty similar to a more common Mexican made offering, and having played both, the marked difference in feel and tone on offer owing to the legendary Japanese craftsmanship certainly sets this one apart as the superior guitar. Being semi-hollow, it's easy on the shoulders as well as easy on the eyes, ears and fingers... what more could you ask for?
