Every year, Fender creates special limited-edition instruments for the NAMM show. For 2018, one featured guitar is this '50s Telecaster Thinline — a fantasia guitar that would have existed if the Tele Thinline had been developed in 1958 instead of 1968. Combining hand-wound '50s vintage-style pickups and heavy-relic finish with a lightweight chambered Thinline body and modern wiring, complete with the popular Greasebucket tone circuit, this is a guitar to round out any Telecaster lover's collection.
