Fender Telecaster Thinline w/Factory Bigsby (1972)

No longer for sale

Hard to argue with the vibe of this all-original '72 Thinline Telecaster, no? Everything we love about a great Telecaster, but with a slightly different feel and voice thanks to the semi-hollow body and factory Bigsby. A touch more air, a touch more warmth...it's tricky to articulate the tone vs a standard, solid-body Tele, but it's there and we really dig it. 

Equipped with the legendary "Wide Range" humbuckers, we were easily able to coax really inspiring - and let's face it, super fun - Stones-like grind all the way through warm, clean jazz-worthy tones. The Bigsby works beautifully and stays in tune really well (way better than expected if we're honest). 

Condition: There is some expected weather checking and various bumps and bruises for a guitar of this age, but nothing that set off the alarm bells for us - overall it's in really good shape. The frets are in great shape and smooth but a little lower than we'd prefer - an easy thing to remedy if one desires. The guitar plays great with its current set-up and is really alive and resonant. 

A no-brainer for Tele fans looking to satisfy a vintage guitar urge! Priced with hardshell case.
