I was searching for a lightweight tele and found this Thinline in a store. It is basically a 2013 Select Thinline, but was customized as part of the American Design Experience program. For a couple of years before it turned into an online only service, customers could go to the Fender Visitors Center in Corona and work with master builders to create unique feature variations to stock models. The guitar would then be built and shipped to a retail location the buyer chose. This one differs from other Select Thinlines in that it it's flame maple top has a hand rubbed Dark Green Amber burst nitro finish and the body has a dark see through finish. It also has a flame maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard. I really like the stock Select pickups and it only weights 6 pounds. I also like the Modern C compound radius neck. The previous owner appears not to have played it much as I found it near mint with little fret ware. I'm really enjoying it.
