A reimagined 1950s Thinline Telecaster fusing vintage tone with modern versatility.

The Fender Custom Shop 50s Telecaster Custom Thinline Limited-Edition celebrates the iconic Tele tone in a lightweight semi-hollow form factor. This fantasia guitar reimagines what a Thinline Telecaster could have been if released in the late 1950s rather than 1968. Packed with hand-wound vintage-style pickups and Fender's latest innovations, it's the perfect blend of classic vibe and contemporary versatility.

Lightweight Chambered Ash Body With Relic'd Finish

While the semi-hollow ash body construction cuts down on weight for enhanced playing comfort, the chambered design retains the punchy midrange and percussive attack that defines a great Telecaster. The heavy relic lacquer finish, complete with simulated dings and playing wear, gives this Thinline Tele the look and feel of a cherished vintage instrument right out of the case. You'll swear you've been playing this guitar for decades.

Vintage-Spec Neck With Contemporary Refinements

The '57 Soft V-shaped quartersawn maple neck carves a familiar, comforting path along the 9.5" radius fingerboard, providing that vintage Tele playing feel. At the same time, the Greasebucket tone circuit and 3-way switching unlock a wider range of sonic possibilities compared to vintage Tele wiring. You get the best of both eras in a single instrument.

Premium Appointments and Deluxe Case

Every detail has been meticulously appointed, from the bone nut to the single-ply parchment pickguard. The guitar also comes equipped with a deluxe hardshell case to protect your investment, along with a strap and certificate of authenticity. Whether you're a die-hard Tele fan or just love vintage-inspired guitars, the Fender Custom Shop 50s Telecaster Custom Thinline Limited-Edition is sure to inspire.
