Fender Custom Shop LTD 1972 Telecaster Thinline Custom Relic – Seafoam Green Sparkle

Serial Number: CZ546756

1972 saw the introduction of a new Telecaster® Thinline model that took Fender’s venerable workhorse guitar into bold new territory in both sound and style. Most prominently, two big new high-output humbucking pickups designed by famed pickup maker Seth Lover were housed in a curvaceous new pickguard, below which was mounted a new six-saddle Stratocaster® bridge.

The Limited Edition ’72 Tele Thinline honors that year’s model, featuring a hollow two-piece select ash body with f-hole and Heavy Relic lacquer finish. The AA quartersawn flame maple neck has a ’60s-style “oval-C” profile, topped by a 9.5”-radius round-lam rosewood fret board with 21 narrow tall frets.

The pickups are wound to the original spec, with 12 adjustable “cunife” (copper-nickel-iron) magnets—just like the originals—for hum-canceling high output grit. Other features include aged pearloid pickguard, three-way blade pickup switch, hardtail Strat bridge (Custom Shop Vintage Synchronized Strat Tremolo on Blue Flower), Schaller® “F” tuners, bone nut, and “wing” string trees. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.

Schaller is a trademark of its respective owner.
