Fender’s American Vintage ’72 Telecaster® Thinline guitar authentically evokes a historic member of the Telecaster family. Period-correct early-’70s details include a three-bolt neck plate with Micro-Tilt™ adjustment, bullet truss rod nut and vintage-style “F” tuners; with touches including Fender Wide Range humbucking neck and bridge pickups redesigned and re-voiced to sound even more like 1970s pickups.
Features include a semi-hollow ash body with f-hole and gloss lacquer finish, "C"-shaped maple neck with gloss lacquer finish, maple fingerboard with 9.5” radius and 21 6105 frets, three-position switch with “barrel” tip, four-ply white pearloid pickguard, vintage-style Stratocaster strings-through-body hardtail bridge, knurled chrome knobs and chrome hardware. Accessories include black textured-vinyl case, polish cloth, 8’ cable, strap and bridge cover. Available in Black and 3-Color Sunburst.

Couldn't afford an original, so I popped for this one and I'm glad I did
Light as a feather with pickups that truly would make Seth Lover proud, this Guitar is fun to play and sounds great for nailing that early 70's sound, soaring highs and lows that seem to go on forever
Fit and Finish are A plus, Neck feels fast and light as a nice peice of Maple should, a great overall package, case is beautiful as well. Honestly feels like a new 1972 Guitar did back in the Day, Fender got this one right
I'm a Fender Fanatic and History Buff, and I can truly say that this Guitar lives up to the AVRI Myth and Legend, I love it and will continue to put it through its paces through my 1966 Super Reverb Amp at as high a volume as I can get away with !!
I hope to grow old with this Guitar, Thanks
