Vintage vibe meets modern cool with this limited-edition lightweight Tele fantasy.

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.


  • Relic-finished chambered ash body
  • 25.5" scale, 1-piece quartersawn '57 soft-"V" maple neck with 21-fret, 9.5" radius maple fretboard
  • Handwound Tele Texas Special (neck) and Broadcaster (bridge) pickups, 3-way switching with Greasebucket tone circuit
  • Vintage-style through body stringing 3-saddle bridge, vintage-style tuners

The perfect addition to your collection—order your '50s Thinline Tele today.
