1972 was a magical year for the Telecaster guitar, which was then available in several new designs and with more options than ever before.

The Telecaster family went through an expansion in 1972 with the introduction of a new version of the Thinline, originally launched in 1969. This version of the Telecaster featured a semi-hollow ash body with a distinctive single f hole. To compete with other famous electrics that feature humbucking pickups, Fender introduced their own version of the humbucker resulting in the Wide Range Humbucker, designed by Seth Lover. The Wide Range Humbucker produces a bright, unique sound with power to spare. The Fender '72 Telecaster Thinline Hollow Body Electric Guitar captures all the essentials that made this such a unique instrument 40+ years ago.

Fender’s ‘72 Thinline Telecaster also boasts a period-correct 1 piece gloss lacquer finish C-shaped maple neck. The 21 fret maple fingerboard has a vintage-style 7.25” radius. Other features include a three-bolt neckplate, a three-position switch with “barrel” tip, four-ply white pearloid pickguard, vintage-style Stratocaster strings-through-body hardtail bridge with Fender stamped saddles, knurled chrome knobs and chrome hardware. Case not included.

        This is putting my other guitars to no good use. Ive played many different guitars in samash and this blew everything away. The pickups are great, and i can get any tone i want. This thing is seriously my baby.

          Comments about Fender '72 Telecaster Thinline Hollow Body Electric Guitar:

          This guitar is simply a joy to play. It's very easy to get a broad range of sounds. You can dial up a warm, mellow clean sound, or boost the treble for that signature tele twang. Distorted sound is surprisingly good an full, and high gain will give you an anything from an apocalyptic scream to a thundering pile driver effect depending on pickup and tone selection. In between the two extremes are a variety of interesting sounds with their own appeal. In short, you will spend lots of time being pleasantly surprised by what you can do with this guitar. The feel of the one-piece maple neck is simply wonderful. I'm having bigtime trouble putting mine down, and it's (temporarily, at least) banished other, more expensive guitars to the closet. Build quality is solid, and the finish on my natural version is beautiful--almost as much fun to look at as it is to play (well, actually it's a lot more fun to play). Cannot recommend highly enough; if you're interested in a semi-hollow axe, you'll definitely want to take this one for a spin.

            This guitar is good enough for any level player.I own several American Fenders, and this Mex Tele is close in quality and finish. Well worth the price.
