Fender Custom Shop ’68 Tele Thinline Journeyman Relic, Maple Fingerboard, 3-Color Sunburst

~Guitar pictured is the actual guitar that you will receive~

1968 saw the debut of the Telecaster Thinline—designed as a lighter new version of the Telecaster due to a shortage of lightweight ash bodywood. The guitar had hollow “wings” on either side of the body, with an f-hole on the bass side for a brilliant new look and warmly resonant tone. The ’68 Telecaster Thinline Journeyman Relic captures that year’s model in all its brilliance, with a few custom modifications including a Bigsby® B5 bridge and tailpiece for added vibrato. A semi-hollow Thinline mahogany or ash body wears a perfectly worn-in Journeyman Relic lacquer finish. The rift-sawn maple neck features a ’60s-style “oval C” profile, 9.5”-radius rift-sawn maple fingerboard and 21 narrow tall (6105) frets.

Custom Shop hand-wound Twisted Tele® pickups provide extra-hot output for beautiful resonance and are hooked up to modern Telecaster wiring and three-way switch. Other features include a three-ply white pearl pickguard, Schaller® “F” tuning machines, bone nut, and wing string tree. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.

The guitar pictured is the actual guitar that you will receive. It comes with Fender’s Factory Warranty and our 100% satisfaction guarantee! It will be professionally set up and ready to play before it leaves our store.
