Fender's Select Series - superb instruments for serious guitarists

The Select Thinline Telecaster is a member of Fender's new Select Series. Built in the USA (where else?), this series one-ups the American Deluxe Series with choice tonewoods, compound-radius fingerboards, quartersawn necks, beautifully figured tops, gorgeous finishes, and premium appointments throughout. These superb instruments are the ultimate production Fenders. They play like butter, and they sound incredible. We guitarists here at Sweetwater are mightily impressed. Get your hands on the Fender Select Thinline Telecaster - you'll see what we mean.

Gorgeous, great-sounding gloss lacquer finish

The Fender Select Thinline Telecaster wears a gorgeous gloss lacquer finish. Lacquer finishes - standard back in the '60s and '70s - are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to "breathe." Lacquer finishes not only look vintage-y wonderful; they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities.

Quartersawn neck provides rock-solid stability

The neck is one of the most important aspects of any instrument, which is why the Fender Select Thinline Telecaster features a quartersawn maple neck. Besides looking good, the straight grain of quartersawn necks is about 50% more stable than plain-sawn necks, and less likely to warp, twist or shrink. You'll also love the playability and feel of the Select Thinline Tele's contoured heel when you're playing higher up the fretboard. Down low, your fretting hand will appreciate the compound radius that keeps things nice and comfortable for natural, relaxed arpeggio work across the entire fretboard.

Fender Select Thinline Telecaster Features:
  • Semi-hollow ash body with flame maple top and gloss lacquer finish
  • Birdseye maple neck and compound-radius fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets
  • Custom-voiced single-coil pickups, developed exclusively for the Select series
  • Quartersawn maple neck enhances rigidity and resonance
  • Deluxe staggered locking tuning machines
  • American Tele bridge with New American Standard bent steel saddles and stamped brass plate
  • Fender Deluxe Hardshell Case included

You'll love the Fender Select Thinline Telecaster!
