Fender ’72 Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar Review

The Fender ’72 Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar is a classic, and this replica takes you back to the sounds of the ’70s. The ’72 Tele was given dual humbucking pickups, providing it with a meatier sound, as well as a newly designed pickguard for an updated look.

This replica is a match to the original in every detail.. It features a semi-holow ash body, 7.25″ radius fingerboard, die cut machine heads, nickel silver frets and a 6-saddle string-thru-body bridge. If jamming to ’70s rock isn’t your thing, never fear, this is the most versitile Telecaster you can find. From blues to country to punkrock to whatever.. you will not be dissapointed in the quality of craftsmanship and the tone the ’72 Telecaster Thinline delivers.

    I bought this 2009 72 reissue a few months back. It had been hanging in the store for a while and I really wanted a 72. I couldn’t be more pleased.

    The fit and finish is great. Neck pocket is nice and snug. Great overall classic looking guitar.

    The set up was not so great at first and I did have to set the guitar up for my personal playing preferences which are as low as I can get the strings with out buzzing.

    PickUps: Brighter than the orginals and Japanese reissues. The neck pickup was a little muddy to begin with but once I set the pickup height and gave it some gain it really shine. Bridge pickup can still give you that Tele spank if you want it and still bright.

    Over all a very good guitar. I own this and it’s a great rock,blues,modern rock guitar.

    I own some quality guitars including a Les Paul, Collings 290 and a very nice Strat. I’m no authority but I do know what a decent guitar is. I was so pleased with this guitar that I traded a 95 Les Paul for the Thinline brand new. I know…I know….blasphemy! But, I’ve not once regretted it. You’ve read all the other reviews that tell you how well this plays and how its different from other Fenders because of those unique pickups and I would agree. In addition to its light weight and meatier Tele sound this guitar just plain has good mojo! Anyone that plays guitar knows what I mean. Not only do I like the sound it makes and how it feels….I love to look at it and it has great visual presence. You just can’t get that much cool for such a decent price. I have played it on stage and always get compliments for its sound and looks. Only techincal note I would make is that it really does better with at least 10 strings on it. I play with heavier tens and have the action low. Awesome. This really is a great guitar for anyone. Love MIM Fenders.
