American Vintage ’69 Telecaster Thinline Appears for 2011

Fender’s newly released American Vintage ’69 Telecaster Thinline guitar sets out to authentically capture one of the most experimental evolutionary steps in Telecaster history. In 1969, the hollowed-out and lightweight Thinline was the first of three major Telecaster design revisions of the late-’60s/early-’70s era, and players prized it for its own distinctive tone.

The American Vintage ’69 Telecaster Thinline features period correct late-’60s details such as a “top hat” pickup switch tip and vintage-style “F” tuners. Other features include a semi-hollow mahogany body with f hole and gloss lacquer finish; C-shape maple neck with gloss lacquer finish, standard four-bolt neck plate and vintage-style truss rod system; maple fingerboard with 7.25” radius and 21 vintage-style frets; American Vintage Telecaster single-coil neck and bridge pickups with three-position switching; four-ply white pearloid pickguard; vintage-style three-saddle strings-through-body Telecaster bridge; knurled chrome knobs and chrome hardware. Accessories include black Tolex case, polish cloth, 8’ cable, strap, bridge cover and six-saddle replacement bridge. Available in Olympic White and Two-color Sunburst.
