These pickups produce all the brilliant pristine, well-defined tone of vintage single-coil pickups, with no hum.
This instrument features a fingerboard radius (the amount of curvature across the width of the fingerboard) that, at 12", is substantially more flattened than both a vintage-style 7.25" radius and a modern 9.5" radius. Feels notably flat even though there’s still slight curvature—great for bending notes without fretting out.
For superior intonation, sustain and ease of adjustment, Deluxe Series guitars feature modern bridges with upgraded features. This instrument has a string-through-body bridge with block saddles.
This instrument features locking tuning machines for increased tuning stability and easy restringing.
The special four-way pickup switch on this Telecaster Thinline guitar adds a fourth pickup combination—neck and bridge together, in series. Series wiring sets your tone on fire with hotter output and a slight midrange boost.
The most notable hallmark of this modern Telecaster Thinline model is its comfortably lightweight semi-hollow body, which also contributes much to its resonant tonal character and authentically evokes its late-1960s and early-’70s ancestors.
