Fender Deluxe Telecaster Thinline Satin Black Gold Hardware Limited Edition
Wow! These are without a doubt some of the coolest Thinline Teles we've seen in years, and Fender is only making 228 for the entire world market, available only at independent dealers!
You get gold hardware on a Satin Black finish, a 4-way pickup selector with series/parallel settings for major tonal versatility, and Fender's Vintage Noiseless pickups to boot! A contoured neck heel, staggered locking tuners, free deluxe gig bag and a ridiculously low price round out this feature-packed phenom. Fender definitely hit it way out of the park on this one folks!
Light in weight, but not sound, the Deluxe Telecaster Thinline is crafted with timelessly elegant style and authentic Fender tone. Crisp and articulate, with a versatile voice that cuts through a busy mix, this stage-tested design is the ideal combination of modern features and traditional aesthetics.
With a little bit of extra ‘magic’ up its sleeve, this instrument is as flexible as it is distinctly stylish. Two noise-free, highly articulate Vintage Noiseless™ Tele pickups produce rich, detailed tone, with the balanced string response, definition and twang you’ve come to expect from a Tele. The semi-hollow construction imparts seductively warm overtones to the traditional Tele sound, creating a slightly throatier voice. Four-way switching adds an exciting dimension to the traditional Tele pickup combinations—position four combines the bridge and neck pickups in series for hotter output and punchier midrange.
Enjoy increased sustain and slightly thicker tone that complements the famous Tele twang, thanks to the modern six-saddle sting-through-body bridge with block saddles. A contoured neck heel and 4-bolt asymmetrical neck plate make it easy to comfortably reach the upper registers of the neck. The flatter 12”-radius fingerboard makes it easy to play fast leads and perform deep bends without fretting out. Locking tuning machines with vintage-style buttons provide enhanced tuning stability, along with quicker string changes.
