Squier Vintage Modified '72 Tele Thinline Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • 1972 was a magical year for the Telecaster guitar
  • Resonant chambered ash body for great tone
  • Squier's Vintage Modified series: hot mods of classic Fenders
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, "C"-shape maple neck, vintage hardtail string-through bridge, four-bolt neck plate, and two "Wide Range" humbucking pickups. The Thinline Tele not only has a sound all it own, but it's also lighter, so you'll be rocking all night.

Resonant chambered ash body for great tone

Not only does the Vintage Modified '72 Tele Thinline's chambered ash body make this an incredibly comfortable guitar to play, but it as depth and resonance to the classic Tele tone. Fat, warm, and woody, the Vintage Modified '72 Tele Thinline goes beyond the classic tone of a Telecaster.

Squier's Vintage Modified series: hot mods of classic Fenders

Here at Sweetwater, we don't think it gets any better than great tone and playability, and Squier's tapped into something really cool with their Vintage Modified series. This series of hot mods of classic Fender guitars sports top-shelf materials and components, with primo fit-and-finish. If you're a guitarist or bassist, you'll likely agree that vintage Fender guitars and basses are heavily lusted-after items, so it's great that Fender, in their infinite wisdom, have set their Squier subsidiary free to create hot-rodded and affordable versions of the classics.

Squier Vintage Modified '72 Tele Thinline Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • A modern take on the classic Telecaster Thinline
  • Ash body has the right balance of rich sustain and snappy note attack
  • Body chamber with F-hole adds just the right amount of resonance and warmth
  • Compound radius fingerboard is optimized for both rhythm and lead playing
  • Wide Range pickups give you a huge tonal palette without hum and buzz
  • Three-way pickup selector for more tonal options
Affordable classics and killer tone from Squier!

Most versatile guitar ever?

I'll make this quick, but this guitar is absolutely incredible. It can do almost anything? The humbuckers really give it that BEEF but you still have the twangy sound of a tele complimented by the fact that it's semi hollow. It made me fall in love with playing guitar again.

Aging Rocker

I bought this for my two year old grandson.(OK I might be rushing it). But one thing led to another. After purchasing the guitar what about a case to store it in for the few years before I can pass it on to him. Oh he is going to need an amp also. I could give him my 1977 Deuce. Oh he can't lug that around. It needs work anyway. What about a small practice amp like my Pig nose from 1977. What do you know the Pig nose is still available for a limited time in tweed. It matches the case. So cool. And this fiddle is so much lighter than my 1977 Natural finish Custom Les Paul. I had forgot how heavy the Les Paul's are. I still plan on giving the Teli to him. It might be hard to give it up in a few years! Thank You SW for the personal service.

my favorite workhorse guitar

I bought this guitar out of curiosity back in July, 2015, back when the price was only $299.00. I fell in love with it right away, literally taking it out of the box and directly onstage to an outdoors gig attended by well over 2000 people. I was amazed at how fantastic it sounded and I really only had to tune it only once during the entire gig. I wondered at the time how such a killer guitar could only cost $299. I see now that it costs over $400. (I'm actually surprised it doesn't cost more than that!). Anyway, I feel extremely lucky to have this Squire for the original, lower price (I also have 2 Squire Strats, a Squire Cabronita, and a Squire Jazzmaster...can't beat the price and the quality). This Tele came with a set of .09 ga. strings but I now exclusively use sets of Ernie Ball.10's on during string changes...sounds great, sustains forever, no hum/buzz or unwanted feedback, and stays beautifully in tune, all night long no matter how much I bend the strings (I play lead guitar 6-8 nights/month--top 40, rock & country). I encourage any guitar picker interested in buying one of these '72 Tele Thinlines to grab one now before the price goes up again!!!! As always, thanks to my sales rep, Nick Church at Sweetwater, who helped me make my decision to get this gem!

Wow is Right!!!

I couldn't believe it the 1st time I seen one. Then it was gone no add was I dreaming? I search other sites and found it eventually at GC. (No I will not buy from them) It comes back in stock, but before I can even look at it they sold out. I looked at the Sunburst but they just didn't quite do it. 3 more shipments come and go but I just can't pull the trigger, Went as far as adding them to my cart twice then waited a day and poof gone. Well then a shipment came in just after Christmas and there it was #3 of 4 it was perfectly matched bookended back and the front looks to be one piece. spot on set up, Sweetwater is the Best!!!The pic's don't hold a candle to the way it looks in my hands. I've played the original 72's when they were new and I have to say these are really close. I really fell in love with the neck pickup when I rolled off the tone, not muddy and full of harmonics I still finding new inspirations with my newest axe! Fender realized how great these are and have raised the price. But I feel they are still a value and deserve respect.

Squier Vintage Modified '72 Tele Thinline - Natural, Maple

I didn't have anything with Tele humbuckers in my collection so when I saw that Squier was coming out with a 72 Tele Thinline reissue, I had to have one. A Fender Thinline tones at a Squier price. A good guitar for money. Nice attention to detail on the build. Finely carved f-hole and Fender- embossed humbuckers. The tuners, pots, and switch aren't great. But for playability, appearance, and overall sound, this guitar is great. They work, but they're what you'd expect from an inexpensive guitar. The quality of this guitar 'Made in Indonesia' is outstanding for the price comparing to Fender Modified '72 Tele Thinline 'Made in China'.
