Classic Custom '72 TelecasterSince 1946, the name FENDER® has become synonymous with all things rock 'n' roll: from Buddy Holly to Jimi Hendrix to Eric Clapton to Kurt Cobain and everything in between. Fender's iconic instruments such the Telecaster®, are known the world over as the instruments that started the rock revolution, and they continue to be highly prized among today's hottest guitarists and collectors alike. Notable Telecaster® players include Muddy Waters; Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones; Jimmy Page (on Led Zeppelin's studio recordings); Andy Summers of the Police; Jonny Greenwood, Thom Yorke and Ed O'Brien of Radiohead; Prince; Bruce Springsteen; Roy Buchanan; and The Edge of U2 has also begun to use a Telecaster on a regular basis.
1972 was a magical year for the Telecaster guitar. With several new designs, the Telecaster guitar was available with more options than ever before. The '72 Tele® Thinline features a warmer and rounder, semi-hollow ash body, "U"-shape maple neck, Bullet® truss rod, '70s vintage hardtail strings-through Strat® bridge, three-bolt neckplate, and two Fender "Wide Range" humbucking pickups. The Thinline Tele not only has a sound all it own, but it's also lighter

by Jorge Hernández from MéxicoI've been playing six hours straight. I already had a Blackout Tele and am writing this review since the perfection and neatness of this semi-hollow Tele is something the world must know about. The lo... read more [+]oks as m¡you might be able to get from the pics are near perfection but, people, this guitar has sounds that could reminisce of the best of Tom Petty and/or Marr... yes.

It delivers outstanding warm tones. I play this guitar through a Fender tube amp and love the results.
The laminate maple frets are so smooth and fast, it almost plays itself.
Is this the "perfect" guitar? I don't know, but it sure works for me.
I would recommend this guitar for blues and jazz. close [-]
