Country Tradition, Soul Survivor, Rock Legend: The Telecaster Thinline


Fender has periodically found new ways to breathe life into its original electric guitar, the Telecaster. The late 1960s and early 1970s were especially fertile periods for creative takes on the guitar, and the three resulting variations on the instrument—the Telecaster Thinline (1968), Telecaster Custom (1972) and Telecaster Deluxe (1973) remain in the Fender line today.

The first of these was the Telecaster Thinline, and as is so often the case with Fender instrument designs, its genesis was rooted in efficiency and economy.

As the 1960s wore on, Fender found itself facing a dwindling supply of lightweight ash for Telecaster bodies, although heavier ash grades were plentiful. In 1967, Fender sought ways to lighten Telecasters made with this heavier wood, and the factory experimented with routing cavities beneath the pickguard to accomplish just that without changing the guitar’s appearance. A small number of these guitars were made in summer 1967, but the approach was deemed unsatisfactory and Fender began planning an instrument that would be much more of a true hollow-body Telecaster.

Embedded content:

The task was given to renowned German luthier Roger Rossmeisl. After a brief early-’50s stint with Gibson and an enormously influential career at Rickenbacker, Rossmeisl quite literally arrived on Fender’s doorstep in early 1962 and was promptly charged with engineering Fender’s entry into the world of acoustic guitars. As author Richard Smith recalls in Fender: The Sound Heard ’Round the World:

Confident he could make a job for himself in Leo’s expanding universe, Rossmeisl had already moved to Fullerton. He told Leo, in essence, “I’m here, and I’m going to start working for you.” Leo liked Roger’s cocky self-assured manner, admired his work, and saw the opportunity to put the Fender mark on acoustic guitars. Leo hired him on the spot.

Rossmeisl spent the remainder of the 1960s at Fender before returning to Germany in the early 1970s. The hallmarks of his tenure were Fender acoustic guitars, the Coronado and Wildwood hollow-body electric guitars, a handful of short-lived arch-top models and his most enduring Fender success, the Telecaster Thinline.

With the help of Virgilio Simoni, head of Fender’s blank, body and sanding department, Rossmeisl basically hollowed out a Telecaster body—routing out sections on both sides from the rear and gluing a thin panel over the back. The guitar was given a single f hole and an elongated pearloid pickguard that extended from the neck pickup down to the lower bout, encompassing the pickup switch and both control knobs. It had two single-coil pickups, and on its introduction came in a natural-finish ash or mahogany body (ash being the more common of the two) with a maple-cap fingerboard. Its neck, electronics and hardware were identical to a standard Telecaster of the time, but the instrument weighed only half as much as its solid-body sibling.

The guitar debuted in 1968 and listed that July for $319.50.

Design changes ensued quickly. A three-color sunburst finish option became available in 1969. Also that year, the original maple-cap neck was replaced with a one-piece maple neck with a rear “skunk stripe,” and players also had a choice of a rosewood fingerboard.

The Telecaster Thinline was redesigned in 1971 to accommodate a pair of humbucking pickups; note the accompanying change in pickguard shape.

The most significant design changes, however, came in 1971, when a pair of large Seth Lover-designed Fender Wide Range humbuckers replaced the Telecaster Thinline’s single-coil pickups. Lover, who invented the humbucking pickup while working for Gibson in the 1950s, joined Fender in fall 1967 as a project engineer and had perfected a new humbucking pickup for Fender in 1970.

The Telecaster Thinline’s pickguard was consequently reshaped to accommodate both pickups, and the instrument also received a bullet truss rod and three-bolt neck attachment. This revamped version of the model also had “Telecaster Thinline” on the headstock rather than just “Telecaster,” as did the original 1968 design. It was this incarnation of the instrument that remained in the Fender family until the Thinline was discontinued in 1979.

As Fender emerged from the CBS era in the mid-1980s, both versions of the Telecaster Thinline—dual single-coil and dual humbucker—were resurrected by Fender Japan in 1986 as reissue models, the Thinline Telecaster ’69 and the Thinline Telecaster ’72. These were produced through 1998.

An interesting footnote in Telecaster Thinline history is that soon after Michael Stevens and John Page founded the Fender Custom Shop in Corona, Calif., in 1987, their very first official job crafting an instrument for an artist was the creation of a foam green left-handed Telecaster Thinline for Cars guitarist Elliot Easton. The order was placed in February 1987, and the instrument was completed several months later on Aug. 10.

And then a funny thing happened—although Fender’s Thinline and humbucker Telecaster models of the late 1960s and early 1970s were only moderately successful when they were first released, they suddenly found themselves in vogue in the 1990s with a new generation of guitarists, especially those hailing from the United Kingdom. Guitarists from Radiohead, Franz Ferdinand, Gomez, the Hives, Snow Patrol and many other bands were seen playing Telecaster Thinline, Custom and Deluxe models.

Fender responded by reissuing a U.S.-built model—the ’90s Tele Thinline—from 1997 to 2000. This instrument was a 1968-’69 style Thinline with single-coil pickups and was available in a variety of colors.

A pair of Mexico-built Classic series models quickly followed; the ’69 Telecaster Thinline debuting in 1998 (dual-single-coil style) and the ’72 Telecaster Thinline debuting in 1999 (dual-humbucker style). A distinctive artist model, the Jim Adkins JA-90 Telecaster Thinline, was introduced in 2008.

Fender’s value brand, Squier, also introduced two dual-single-coil version of the instrument—the Vintage Modified Telecaster Thinline (2007) and the Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline (2010).

In 2016 Fender introduced the American Elite Thinline Telecaster with features including two all-new fourth generation noiseless single-coil Telecaster pickups, S-1 switching switches between parallel and series pickup wiring and a new compound profile neck.

Custom Handwound Replacement Wide Range / Tele / Thinline Humbucker Pickups

Wide Range/Thinline Humbucker Replacement Pickups & Reissue Upgrades

Custom Replacement Wide Range / Tele / Thinline Humbuckers from The Creamery

Creamery Custom Handwound Tele Thinline Replacement Wide Range Humbucker PickupsOne of my favourite pickups, I spent 18mths developing, testing & refining these replica/reproducion pickups, having all the final parts custom made to my own specifications - Nothing 'off-the-shelf'. Here you have it, a new, true spec replacement for the modern Fender® Seth Lover Wide Range/Thinline Tele Custom & Deluxe Humbucker reissues.

Total Guitar Best Buy 5 star review of Creamery Wide Range Humbuckers

Whereas the original Wide Range/Thinline Humbucker pickups had threaded CuNiFe magnets, the modern reissues are simply a standard humbucker design with under coil bar magnet and pole screws dressed to look like a vintage Wide Range Pickups. With the right capacitors & potentiometers, they’re not a bad pickup at all, a good, warm take on the traditional humbucker sound – they just don’t have the clarity, definition, dynamics & sparkle of the original Wide Range/Thinline Tele Humbuckers. My custom, handwound versions are true to the original design with custom manufactured, adjustable threaded rod magnets, correct 42AWG coil, larger internal bobbins and internal ferrous reflector plate.

I can also upgrade your Fender® reissue pickups if you want the vintage sound and keep the Fender® logo chrome cover.

I wanted to make replacement Wide Range Humbuckers as close to the original '70s design as possible. It took a long time and much effort & cost having custom parts manufactured but I think its worth it.

I’ve created two varieties – a full sized version intended to be a direct drop-in replacement for the current Wide Range/Thinline Tele Humbucker reissues and a slightly scaled down version to fit standard Gibson/PAF Humbucker size. You can find more details & audio/video demos under the tabs below.

When I was a kid looking at my very first-ever Guitar Player magazine, the Fender ads captivated me. As much as I dug the venerable Strat, the Telecaster Deluxe just seemed so cool with its humbucking pickups. 

The Tele Thinline was even more alluring, because in addition to the awesome humbuckers, it had that f-hole, which was a link to the classical music and classic rock (which was current rock at the time) that I loved. So when this Vintera Thinline fell into my lap, I was thrilled to be able to revisit some of the magic of the Steve Miller issue from January 1978.

This guitar is a (mostly) period-correct tribute to its namesake. That means you get a semi-hollow ash body with a maple neck and, in the case of the review model, the creamy, sexy, blonde finish. 

The neck has Fender’s thin C profile, which is pretty skinny front to back, but despite my large mitts, I was able to get used to this neck with minimal fuss. The 7.25-inch radius made me a little nervous about big bends, but only monster bends got fret buzzy. 

Overall, the Vintera Thinline plays great. Mind you, all of this is without even plugging this fine guitar in, and that’s okay, because the semi-hollow construction gives the Thinline a kick-ass acoustic voice. No joke: You could stick a microphone on the f-hole and get a totally legit guitar track, with a punchy, honky, mid-heavy sound. This guitar is lively.

When I did plug in, I was reminded of why we love Seth Lover. He designed the Wide Range Humbuckers that you see here (and another pickup you may have heard of, the PAF), and the dude knew a thing or two about tone. 

These pickups have a clear, open sound, with a throaty midrange. Through a clean Kemper profile, the bridge tone had plenty of top end for pop and disco strumming but was still full enough to make single-note lines stand on their own. 

The middle position possesses great cluck for funk and blues, although I must admit I was jealous of the Tele Deluxe’s separate volume knob. It would be cool to explore the various gradations between the two humbuckers. 

The neck humbucker is a real beauty, easily covering jazz, blues and much more, with a clear tone that is warm but not dark.

I called up a dirty Plexi tone and loved how the Thinline rose to the challenge. I felt like I could convincingly cover a ton of rock styles on the bridge pickup, from jangly to heavy. 

The neck humbucker gives great shred, with awesome clarity at both high gain and high speed. The real X factor on the Thinline, not surprisingly, is its semi-hollow design, which lends a vocal, transparent and hollow (in a good way) envelope to each note.

It’s a chewy, expressive sound and vibe that reminds me of some of my favorite Brian May tones. It’s delicious and addictive and makes me really scratch my head as to why you don’t see more of these guitars around.

I’ve never owned a Thinline or any semi-hollow, but I’ve played a bunch. This Vintera makes me want to take the plunge and add one to my collection more than any I’ve tried. 

Although at a glance it looks like a Tele, it really is its own thing, both sonically and visually. If you’re hunting for a unique sound that honors tradition without being a slave to it, this cool six-string might just do the trick.
