Wanted and dreamed of this guitar for so long. Played a 69 Tele thin line when i was 16 and loved it. I've wanted one ever since. I'm now 52. When I found out Fender made this guitar I had to get my hands on one and give it a try. It Really is all I'd hoped for. The Composite neck was a bit strange when I first picked it up. But you soon find it the most comfortable neck you ever held in you hand. The pickups are just wonderful! They give you all the power you could want through a gain channel on a deville. keep it clean and it's the best sound ever! From clean country rock n roll on the back pickup to cool warm jazz on the front. Both together and clean gives you instant Bill Frizzell. I know this looks to good to be true, but if you ever thought about getting a Telecaster Thin line This is the one! And it don't break the bank either! Thanks Fender.
