Fender Limited Edition Vintera 70s Telecaster Thinline in Shell Pink
Fender’s Vintera range embodies everything that put the iconic guitar company on the map. Channelling the mojo of their finest ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s instruments, the Vintera models also boast a surprisingly affordable price point. The ‘70s Thinline is a nod to the hot-rodded Telecasters of old, boasting a semi-hollow body and wide-range Fender pickups for a unique tonal palette. This limited edition model comes in a gorgeous Shell Pink finish!
Body & Neck
For this particular thinline, Fender opted for an Alder body. Balanced, but with a slightly pronounced upper midrange. The semi-hollow construction really brings out the resonance, giving the Thinline a slightly more 'spacious' tone. A Gloss Polyester finish adds a touch of vintage class.
The Maple neck has been given the thin C-shape treatment. This provides a quicker-than-usual playability, but it also really brings out the top-end Tele bite in spectacular fashion.
Electronics & Hardware
While Alder and Maple are familiar Fender territory, the semi-hollow build gives the sound an edge. Add twin wide-range humbuckers to the mix, and you're way outside the box. Styled on Fender's instantly-recognisable '70s fat pickups, they give the Thinline's sound a modern edge, harnessing the semi-hollow resonance.
A 3-way blade switch, vintage F-stamped tuners and the classic 3-saddle American Chrome Barrel saddles complete the picture. This Tele isn't for the faint-hearted, but offers plenty of dynamics and head-turning looks to boot.
