Fender Thinline Tele, crafted in Japan 2004-05. These never last long when they come our way, they're such sweet guitars. The tone from the 'Wide Range' humbuckers is great: full, warm, bright, articulate... they clean up much more naturally than a Gibson style HB. This one is in tip-top shape, it's got a couple of negligible dimples and from 1ft away looks basically new. The slim neck and lightweight body work beautifully together, it's an effortless player that rings truly with every note. The natural finish really lets the sen ash shine, there's some stunning grain on show. This is an absolute belter of a guitar, it just rules!
