Sadly, I need to thin down my guitar collection, so am selling my Thinline Tele 72 re-issue. It was made in Mexico in 2006 & I've only owned it a short time. This guitar comes with a molded Fender deluxe case that cradles the guitar perfectly (and has all the case-candy & key). It plays fine, but does have some finish issues, but no cracks. The clear finish on some ash body Fenders will pull away from the wood, and you can see some "blushes", especially at the inside curves of the waist of this Tele. See the close-up images of the top & bottom where there's a light coloring to the finish. This doesn't affect the playing in any way, and the areas aren't getting any bigger.
As you can see, the guitar is otherwise in excellent shape, with a few scratches and a ding on the bottom edge (smaller than the 0 on your keyboard). I put amp knobs on it, but the original chrome barrel knobs are included. The strings are Fender Super Bullets, installed a year ago, but played very little since. I did a complete set-up and fret polish at the same time, so it plays very nicely. These sell on eBay for $450-$500 or more without the hardshell case (worth another $100).
Email me through contact and I will get back to you ASAP. Please include where you are. I'm not likely to come meet you part way if you're in Wisconsin (it happens!).
Thank you for looking!
