This is one of the most eye catching guitars we have ever seen and lightest coming in at just over 2,5 kilo's. Fender’s Custom Shop Artisan Series instruments have always wowed musicians and music lovers alike, and the Limited Edition Thinline Tele is no exception. Starting at the back of the guitar, the roasted tone woods from the Birdseye Maple neck to the Ash body are elegantly beautiful and visually enriched with Nitro Cellulose Lacquer, but once turned over; its truest beauty emerges with expert craftsmanship and detail. The top has a robust contrast to the darker body and is framed with an exquisite Herringbone and Tortoise binding brilliantly brought together by a single ply of Tortoise pickguard. The dark fretboard is of African Blackwood and capped with the protruding roasted headstock that finishes the stunning aesthetic. Tonally, you will find a rich abundance of colors and emotions to dabble with, create boldly, or simply tune into a place of calm. This Artisan Thinline Tele model has had an effect on us that we are very excited to share.
