Fender Telecaster Thinline Super Deluxe

1087 ratings | 233465 views
Buy Now: https://goo.gl/ca7Ke9 Welcome back to PGS, today we're looking at the Tele Thinline Super Deluxe. Fender gives this resonate, semi hollow Telecaster a sharp dressed look with binding all around, block inlays and a RW topped maple neck with painted headstock. The unique voice of the lightweight Thinline Telecaster is amplified by a pair of Fender Fideli'Tron mini humbuckers, pickups with a touch of single coil character and extended low end punch. This MIJ factory special run Thinline Super Deluxe uses a rare combo of a 25.5" scale, 7.25" radius board with wide vintage frets and a modern "C" profile. Topping it all off is a vintage style Strat hard tail bridge surrounded by a stylish silver pickguard in the thinline tradition.

imagine if that TL Tele was a floyd rose, 10r and a 24 fret 25.75 scale, FREEKING TOME MONSTER!!! there is a reason a 24.5 is called a student guitar or beginner, it lacks the tone of a 253/4, seriously, the tone is tight and welp, beginner, sorry to all those gibby doods but its simply no where near the full scale 24 fret flat radius guitars that can straight blow, you have a hard time with bends and speed runs on that curved neck, too much choke out, get a 12r 24 fret FR, and SMOKE them GUNS! if you think this is bullshit, find a nice solid state amp with a regular cleans nothing at all. then plug in a short scale vs a regular with same pups, same guitar, yes you can get strats in short, mij.. you will see what I am talking about, the radius speaks for itself, the shorter your strings the less travel for the vibrations to run up and down the strings, common sense, still bullshit, try it against a freekin Ukulele then get back to us, longer the strings more tone, why those baritones RULE! however the huge strings make them impossible to run on for any length of time, just ask the king of shred himself, Glen Campbell, yes he was the original shredder, hum and Buck Owens had competitions, don't believe that get a hold of Alice Pooper and ask him if Glen could SHRED! yup, he played the baritone but the weight and run was just too demanding but the tone is in the eon

Wow, that may be the best guitar demonstration that I've ever seen! Andy, you did a beautiful job showing off that guitar's capabilities to the fullest.

I got this only cos it was dirt cheap and looked special and jackpot! The cleans on the neck pickup are just as good as on the american deluxe strat hss i used to have(obviously diffrent). It sounds better distorted on the bridge pickup,much fatter!the previous owner changed the bridge and added a bigsby,dont have any use for it now but ill get to it.

I luv the sound of that tele. and dude ur my favorite demo player on the net.

Another incredible mij Fender! I just ordered one in white, Got a great deal from "Willcutt guitars" too! (900.00 and free shipping!) lots of dealers are asking 1,119.00 I knew I had to have one of these just from my experience with Fenders made in Japan lately. This will be my 3rd mij and let me tell you, They are SMOKING my USA made Fenders, No contest! This will go perfect beside my MIJ Thinline Strat! The craftsmanship on the thinline strat is so good you cannot help staring at it! Of course the tone and neck are absolutely incredible! Keep them coming Fender Japan!

add me in. I saw a elite thinline today and felt like crying. beautiful guitars
buck aeron (3 years ago)
This is cool especially with TV jones pickups. Its twang like crazy. The snarling of a tele is unquestionable.
TheJofrica (3 years ago)
Wow that is a classy looking guitar
It looks ugly,but sounds great.
Clark Dale (3 years ago)
I have already bought this guitar, and is one of the best Fender guitar I have ever tasted, (I own Cunetto strat) because of: 1. The tune: clear and full of harmonics. 2. Comfortable: the bridge and the neck are absolutely gorgeous of playing. 3. Mesmerised: the appearance in person it's amazing and really special guitar. 4. Its sound playing clear is great and playing with distortion it's fucking astonishing.

+Clark “Tearain” Dale - Great review. Thanks!!
ForViewingOnly (3 years ago)
Lovely guitar. I just don't think the 7.25" radius fret board is for me. I wish Fender had made it 9.5" for a more modern feeling, general-purpose setup. But that's just my preference.
FraJa1980 (4 years ago)
I like these thin line guitars but that F hole bothers the hell out of me, it's in the wrong place compared to other f hole guitars, it should be a little lower with the centre of the hole around the bridge area instead of around the pickup.
jose angel Hernández (4 years ago)
what type of music is that?
nkmcfrln (3 months ago)
Tyler Desrosiers Yeah it’s Rock N’ Roll but you’re so into it that you can’t tell him that it’s Elliot Easton from the Cars and the name of a song that was all over the radio along with many others from The Cars first two albums.

I really appreciate Andy's guitar demos... for once a guitar demo that isn't just some guy playing a solo for 5 minutes in various pickup positions! Throw some chords in there! Yes!
Robert Comer (4 years ago)
What is the song he plays in the begining
Its called "my best friend's girl" by the cars. Pretty nice song

Why cant Fender make this a regular model, with a Squier version too? Awesome demo!
Alejandro Rada (4 years ago)
I really like the way you play. Tasty, natural & groovy.  Actually I think that's the best playing to test a guitar.

"7.25 neck radius doesn't allow bending strings". Really? It's a shame nobody told Hendrix that, he seemed to cope OK. As did all the other legendary players who bent strings quite happily on a 7.25" radius neck. Two possibilities - either the set-up was at fault. Or maybe the fault lies with you. What do ya reckon?

Brian Torres yes!!
Thomas Pisani (5 years ago)
I bought the Thinline Jag. Sent it back. 7.25 neck radius doesn't allow bending strings and the bridge was gawd awful, replaced with another, guitar looked great, and sounded great, but couldn't use it at gigs, mostly cause of the dead notes when playing a lead part and string bending was needed. I paid $1499. for it! way too expensive! Didn't even come with a case. Watching this video, the guitar plays well, but not when you get it home.

Ernest Karchmit (5 years ago)
its a beauty but itself isnt good, too much money for what it offers
AVEIL (5 years ago)
And I was hoping they'd increased the neck radius! Great for chording, but I bet getting full bends w/no "fret-out" are a challenge. I don't understand that; at least put jumbo frets on it if you're going to use such a small radius (7.25"!!). But that's the radius Fender always uses for its "Thinline" Telecasters. I do love the look--I wish Fender would do a little more stuff like this in the way of aesthetics. A bit pricy though, IMO. There's a lot of competition in this price range.

$1099.99

anyone know the price?

I love both vintage frets and 7¼" radii... on a neck the size of a baseball bat, but then again I'm a grown man.

Yay, 7.25 radius for choked notes and vintage frets no one digs

Not sure what it is, but messing around with the chords to U2's "Stuck in a moment you can't get out of" might get you close...
NACHOOFF (5 years ago)
What a biutiful sound.
Isaiah (5 years ago)
I prefer smaller radius boards because they feel better for chords. At least for me. Also, they feel better with higher action.
DaveHangley (5 years ago)
But with the bridge pickup and the amp settings it has a pretty sexy crunch.
DaveHangley (5 years ago)
Well, someone sure woke up on the wrong side of the bed! Personally, I think I might prefer the tones of the standard Tele - have to dig around and check more vids of the thinline - but damn it looks good!
Ziece4 (5 years ago)
Hey, fuck you :).
Maafa 1619 (5 years ago)
You lost me at "modern C shape." Why do they keep putting Ibanez necks on Telecasters. But oh well, I'll just keep building my own Teles. See ya, Fender.
Maafa 1619 (5 years ago)
Just buy a pointy thin-necked metal-douche guitar.

really nice guitar, sharp, but why wouldnt they make this a 12" radius ....not the "choke at the top" 7.5 radius fretboard.

buying tip - remember, to make it sound like this you‚ll need 5 or more years ...
Zach Marsden (5 years ago)
I love the look and sound of this giitar
David Robson (5 years ago)
I bought one of these for Christmas and it really is a fabulous instrument. The level of build quality is stunning and it sounds magnificent as well! Super resonant. It's still a Tele but there's more mids as Andy says as well as more grunt when needed. The neck is superb and I'm so glad I got my local dealer to hassle Fender Australia to get me one. I believe that numbers are incredibly limited so get one while you can. You won't regret it.

The Cars! One of my favorite songs!
