Sorry I sold mine now
I bought a 72' Reissue Telecaster 15 years ago. I'm not someone to own multiple 6 string electric guitars and I have gone between strats, teles, 335s and les pauls for 50 years and enjoyed them all at the time, my least favorite being the les paul that sounds so dull to me by comparison and has tuning stability problems because of the weak headstock design and prone to break there easily. I don't trust the language PRS uses or omits to market their guitars so I won't buy them. I've bought Fender, Squier, Jackson, Gibson and Epiphone electrics exclusively for 50 years although I consider every brand.
The thing about this guitar is that covers everything effortlessly. Those humbuckers sound very close to single coils ( think automatic warm sweet sparkly enough clean jazz tone on the neck pick up with no eq that makes you smile) and almost exactly like Fender's noiseless pickups. They call them wide range but are probably just low output. But more than for enough me and more than single coils. I like to add and subtract flavor on my guitar so I like the squeaky clean sound of lower output pickups to start with and add compression, boost, OD and distortion to taste for each song. The problem with the noiseless teles is that the bridge pickups are still way to 'ice-pick' sounding to my ears and sound just as compressed as humbuckers. It is a crisper sounding Les Paul that makes bending a little more of an effort. This is the perfect 2nd choice for someone who wants the new tele elite, and looks similar too. I love those guitars but the harsh bridge pick up, the case and the price keep the money I have in the bank (thank God). Plus no micro tilt neck and a plastic non self lubricating 'synthetic bone' nut for your $2 gs and trouble. What a shame. Swap out the tuners for locking ones and the plastic nut for any self lubricating nut and I think its better than the tele elite, lighter too. These always weight less than 7 1/2 pounds. And you don't have to obsess about every scratch are carry around the useless, heavy, bulky ugly black plastic coffin with big ORANGE plastic locks they make you buy to get it. The PERFECT gigging guitar.
I missed the authentic chimey chime of the strat (my ultimate favorite guitar) so I sold the '72 thinline a couple of years ago and bought a 70s hardtail strat and haven't look back, except now then when the noise gets to me. The 72 thinline does all styles effortlessly from jazz, to country to the hardest rock but lacks its own character like any Frankenstein guitar. It is a Chameleon. If you play multiple styles and want a quality instrument that won't break the bank, there is no other like the '72 thinline tele and is why it has sold consistently over all these years. Jonny Lang plays and records with them, a lot. Did I say I have never had any problems with ANY Fender product in 50 years in spite of thousands of hours of playing and moving them around from gig to gig? I guess I just did. Thanks Fender, you tick me off every now and then with your out of touch decisions but you never made me regret that I spent my money on your products. And thank God, I would be in the poor house if you'd done things a little differently always so worried about your 'vintage' perspective.
