1972 was a big year for the Telecaster guitar - it was available in new designs, with more options than ever before. The Classic Series '72 Telecaster Thinline has the dual-humbucking pickup configuration introduced in that year, with other features include a semi-hollow ash body with f hole, C-shaped maple neck with bullet truss rod nut, three-bolt neck plate with Micro-Tilt adjustment, maple freeboard and vintage-style string-through-body hard-tail bridge and vintage-style tuners.

The high E string was off the fret board.
Gerard Bellini
The craftsmanship is top notch but more importantly this is one great sounding axe.

This guitar is incredible, espec for the price. Being an on again/ off again player, this instrument has renewed my interest in playing again for the following reasons:
1. Excellent workmanship. Hard to believe it is made in Mexico. Not that that is inherently bad, but aren't the American ones supposed to be better?
2. The neck is elegantly playable.
3. The sound is everything I could want.
4. Versatility is the main thing. If you want a Santana sustain and warmth. It's got it. If you want a sweet jazz hollowbody sound, it's got it too.

At this point I would take this guitar to the desert island over my PRS and all of the other expensive axes I own.
Enjoy!

This is beauty is a serious find and value. The craftsmanship is top notch but more importantly this is one great sounding axe. It has great sustain while playing clean and the semihollow body produces a deeper tone. The other bonus is its light weight, so it's not like a typical telecaster. The HB pickups still have the twang heard in teles and stats, so you may not get that fat metal tone (like an LP). The price is also great, the MIA version will run you twice as much.

This is very versatile axe, with a tone somewhere between the bite of a regular Tele and the fatness of a Les Paul. It fits nicely in just about any mix, with the notes being well-defined without having to be too forward in the mix. I replaced the stock pots with 500k's for a little more clarity on the high end and adjusted the neck for best action; otherwise it's stock and is a favorite among my dozen+ guitars. The only drawback is that the tops of the string saddle screws are uncomfortable against the heel of my hand; a repair shop can trim these so they don't stick up above the saddles (that's next on my to-do list).

The Telecaster Thinline is just so dang versatile! It goes from Tele-Twang to rich twin pole snarl and everywhere in between. A lot of guitar for the money with great playability, great sound, good build quality and classic looks.

Fender should not have shipped this guitar because of poor quality control at the factory. The high E string was off the fret board. The replacement was better. Amazon was great handling the problem. They sent the replacement overnight..
