    The surf green Strat-shaped beast is a Fender Pawn Shop '72. Not made in 1972, but made to look like it may have been. Recent production. It has a semi-hollow Stratocaster body with F hole, a Telecaster neck, rosewood fretboard with modern 9.5” radius and 6105 fret wire, a Fender Wide Range humbucking neck pickup and Fender Enforcer humbucking bridge pickup, dual-knob chrome control plate with master volume and center-detented pickup blend, and a ’70s-style hard-tail Stratocaster bridge.

    Normally a Fender guitar with a SN starting with a "T" is of Japanese origin.

    We'll need the serial number to see if the Thinline Tele is an original or a reissue, and if it's a reissue then it could be MIJ, MIM, or even USA (although the USA version was only made for a couple of years).

    Thank you for the info. My buddy finally got back to me about the other guitar S/N MZ5207728

    I'm thinking it's a 69 reissue deluxe Thinline

    Does that sound right?
