The 1969 Telecaster, recreated with worn finish period-accurate appointments.

The 1969 Telecaster Thinline Journeyman Relic represents one of the most collectable years for that esteemed model. During this time, Fender was looking for lightweight ash body options, ultimately arriving at a semi-hollow body with a solid center. This not only made the guitar notably lighter, but also delivered a distinctively warm and resonant tone. In this faithful recreation, a chambered two-piece ash body is highlighted by a Journeyman Relic finish for a well-worn look and added vintage appeal. The one-piece quartersawn maple neck has a ’60-style “oval C” profile, topped with a 9.5”-radius fingerboard with 21 narrow tall frets for a familiar feel while hand-wound Texas Special pickups are connected to a three-way switch and modern Tele wiring for a modern sound. Additional features include a three-ply white pearl pickguard, a ’69 Tele bridge with notched barrel saddles, “F” tuning machines, a bone nut and wing string tree with nylon spacer. A deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity are also included.
