    Hello all,

    I really fancy an original tele thinline, with the wide range humbuckers. So I'm going to go play a few if I can, but any thoughts ou there on what you all do or don't like about them would be really appreciated.

    Did they make any with a RW neck? Do these sound any different?

    I'm guessing that the early 70's ones are a bit better than the later ones too....

    Thinlines were maple neck only, at least that's what is says in the Telecaster Book.

    Here's my '75 in olympic white with factory bigsby, giving it a country vibe. Great feeling neck. The pickups have a unique sound to me. Play a few if you can and try different amp settings, I think you will find a setting that will bring a smile.

    No complaints. In the late seventies I went back and forth for several years between a Thinline and a Montego, both probably built in 1972. Wonder what ever happened to them.:confused:

    Actually the original Thinline did not have the humbucker but the regular Tele single coils and that was in 1968. Humbuckers were introduced in the early 70's.
