Body: Ash, semi-hollow

Neck: Maple neck (serial number dates to 1974) with a “C” profile, 1 5/8” wide nut, maple fretboard, 7.25” radius, and dot inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Fender tuners, two wide-range humbuckers (rated at 10.1 kOhms in the neck and 10.1 k in the bridge), three-way pickup selector switch, volume and tone controls (visible ’74 pot and pickup dates)

Cosmetic Condition: This vintage Tele is aging beautifully! The body has a gorgeous checking pattern, accented by regular play wear, and a few dings and dents along the edges. The neck is mostly smooth, with just a few small interruptions. The edges of the fretboard are well worn, with a couple of dings/finish chips along the treble side edge of the first fret. The headstock has aged to a very nice tone, with plenty of edge wear and dings, as well as strong amount of pitting and corrosion to the tuners and string trees. This Thinline is thick on character!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, and play great, though there is a strong amount of fret wear.

Modifications/Repairs: The switch tip has been replaced.
