I've owned this guitar for about 7 years and will never get rid of it. In the past 3 months alone I've had 3 people offer to purchase it from me. I loaned it to a friend to play and he had a random person from the crowd try to buy it off of him after the show!

This is not your typical Tele. It comes with humbuckers so its much warmer. Please play it in a store before you purchase it. I used to play it through a Mesa Boogie and now I play it through a Fender Deville 4x10. If you want to rock, this guitar is for you. If you want to play blues, this guitar is for you, and if you want amazing clean tone this guitar is for you.

I play this guitar more than any other guitar I own (I have 7), including my Gibson Les Paul Standard which was twice the cost! Don't get me wrong, Les Pauls are incredible, however, if you are going to spend around $500 to $800 you really cannot find a better sound than the 72 Thinline Tele. Even with humbuckers it still has that classic Fender twang when you crank up the tone (not as mid heavy as the les pauls).

This is why Amazon allows you to rate something 5 stars, because 4 is simply not enough.

I have primarily played acoustic guitar for almost 13 years and I wanted to try something new. I decided I wanted to start taking blues guitar lessons, so I started going to the local guitar shops to get an idea of the market. I realized very quickly that the tone from one electric to the next was as diverse as acoustic instruments, and that many electric guitars in the range between $600 and $1000 sounded really thin. Then I plugged this one into a blues junior, and I immediately knew that this was the sound I wanted. How awesome it looks with the sunburst finish is mere icing on the cake folks; this thinline's true appeal is in it's warm tone on a clean channel and it's versatility between the two pickups (huge range of amazing tone). Do not confuse this tele with the Fender Classic Player Tele® Thinline Deluxe Electric Guitar with the four knobs (nearly the same look, same $799 price, but completely different thin tone. After playing the Natural and wanting to compare the Sunburst model, GC screwed up the order [in-store] and got the Thinline Deluxe by mistake and it just couldn't compete so I had to wait a few more days for the reorder); this is the one you want!
