Anybody change the neck of you 69 Thinline RI?
Here's my May,1972 Thinline, they are awesome! I had the thick skin removed from the fretboard and neck, way back in 79'.She has Shaller's since 80,they stay in tune for ever!!
Wow! Super nice! Love the single coils version of the Thinline ('69) with the natural ash finish (it reminds me of the one on the cover of Curtis Mayfield's 'Curtis Live' LP, BTW). I guess it doesn't say 'made in USA' for the reason you've suggested (to be closer to the originals -that's also why American Vintage series doesn't mention 'M I USA" anywhere, too)
I noticed a few guys have 72's that have pickguards for single coils or normal size humbuckers. Did you have these custom made or is there a source that has them? I know about that site that will custom make them, but i was hoping someone had them pre made and cheaper. Still not sure i want to keep the guitar so i don't want to spend too much not knowing if i'll keep it after a p/u change.
This my Lovely thinline Ri 72 made in japan 1994,
What an awesome duo I really love them the color is amazing
A naive question which pickup are on yours are they real Wide Range pickups ?? I wonder if the 72 Japanese Vintage reissue have real Wide Range pickups or a modern version
Hey! I just joined the Thinline Club
Bought this cool MJTele body..I'm stoked!
Now I gotta decide on a maple or rosewood board
Might put a CC pickup in too!
yes, that real wide range pickups, the sound is so warm.
Thanks for your answer I would love to get a second thinline so a MIJ would also be a good alternative to the more pricey american séries
As far as the original 72 vintage they all have the six saddle bridge I never seen one with the three double saddle it could be a replacement part
It seems to be installed on teh GE Smith Telecaster model as well
This is an older photo of my CIJ's. 2006 (burst), 2004 (natural).
The burst is gone, but the natural now has original Fender USA Seth Lovers from the 70's & it also has a black guard.
I'll have to post an updated photo of that at some point.
Guess I'm in too. I just couldn't pass up this ash topped 2002 '69 MIM.
Just joined! My vintage tele reissue collection!
Join the Club
OK, I'll join the club, but you will have to wait for pictures. I have a '72 Telecaster Thinline I purchased in December of 1972. It's been in storage since February 1989 and I am in the process of making it playable again.
My 2006 MIM '72 RI
This Is my 2002 MIM 69 tele, I've had it from new. It's great to see so many people with them on here, they're lovely guitars.
I should take a proper photo of it one day!
2004 Thinline Tele 1969RI. Just the regular mahogany thinline. Nothing special except it's mine. I love it. I did change the bridge to a Joe Barden & the electronics to 250K pots, new cap, switchcraft jack & 3 position switch.
Recent photo of my MIM with original pickups. These "69" type knobs are my favourite tele knobs btw, I have them on both my main teles.
Here's my Thinline, 1972 standard tele neck. The things been converted to 4 bolt at one time, a bit of a mutt. Had it for several years and it's a great neck that practically plays itself. Some of the coolest sounding pickups I've ever played but I've never pulled the pickguard off to inspect them because the pickguard is crumbling in places and I'm afraid it'll totally fall apart. I'll get to it one of these days cause I'm curious what this thing is but it's been such a great players guitar I just play the darn thing. It twangs, it rocks, it does it all.
