Anyone own or played one of these and have any thoughts, input or suggestions on them?
I don't own one but I want one too
I've played many USA, Mexican and Japanese versions of the 69 SS Thinlines which I think look the goods and the 72 HH Thinlines which I think sound better but are not as pretty as the 69 SS version.
I'd personally be looking for Classic Series 72 reissue or the AV 72.
Thanks. The one that sparked the inquiry turns out to be a partscaster, but I'm interested in them. I'll keep all that in mind while I'm looking.
I have a US '69 RI with a Lollar Charlie Christian in the neck position, utterly fantastic playing/sounding guitar.
I also have an early edition MIM '72 RI, dual wide range humbuckers, another spectacular guitar.
Nice and quiet and still has the tele sound but can go where you want to take it.
The Squier '60s Thinline yes. The original '70s Thinlines, not for many years. Wish I had one now because those original WRHB pickups are worth a fortune.
The Squier CV Thinline is a nice guitar. Much like a CVC specs wise but lighter and a bit more resonant tonally. I did some work on a friends and enjoyed playing it.
A Thinline Tele is on my 'I would like to have one' list.
I've got the Modern Player Thinline Deluxe Telecaster. I never would have shopped for it, but saw a gorgeous Tele hanging on the wall in a pawn shop and fell in love. I've only briefly played other thinlines, but have to say... a thinline with P90s is magic. I've played the... what is is the MIM 72 with humbuckers. I like this one with P90s better, personally.
I have a 2006 MIM 72 Thinline that the previous owner put a four way switch in. I love it. People rag on the reissue WRHBs, and no doubt they're not made like the originals, but they have their own sound that's very useable, very Fendery but quiet and a tidge thicker than the typical Tele single coil.
You can hear the openness of the semi-hollow body nicely. They're neat guitars.
Y'all got me gassin'. And American Telecaster is feeling out numbered by my strats...lol. Have to keep my eyes open for a deal on one.
Thanks to everyone for your input!
+1 for the modern player thinline
My mahogany bodied '97 CIJ 69RI Thinline Tele is my most played guitar. The only thing I'm not keen on is the MOTO pickguard. All three of my Teles have pearloid, which is odd as I can't stand the stuff.
I also have a '14 MIM 72RI Special Edition Thinline Tele, the special bit being a modern neck with 9 1/2" radius. Humbucker sounds and the feel of a Tele, what's not to like?
I've owned one Thinline, albeit a partscaster with humbuckers in the '69 format. It was a beauty!
I've played several others and they tend to be my preferred breed of Tele in both feel and form. Tonally, you'd be hard pressed to find a difference between otherwise identical solid and semi-hollow Teles.
Well, I have this one that I like a lot. It is a CS Thinline with Texas Special pickups with a 63 neck profile. The body is Alder. It is just a great sounding and playing guitar.
I’ve had this since about 2006 or so.
Love that blue...
It is Lake Placid Blue. Never been to Lake Placid in the summer, so can’t comment on how true the color is to the name...LOL.
It is pretty in person. No one seems to hate it (unlike my tangerine strat).
The tangering ones always remind me creamsicles.... mmmmm...
gotta have a white pickguard though..
I don't have one but have been thinking about getting a Ventara 70s thinline in a natural aged finish. They have a 7.25 neck which I like and have humbucker pick ups. Just got to find the right one.
Never been able to successfully post a photo from Android, but now I'm on my laptop, so here's mine! 2006 MIM Classic 72... I love this guitar!
I just knew it was a bad idea to open this thread....
I've been fighting the desire for a thinline for a while now.. but I just know I'm going to end up building one. Lordy there are some gorgeous teles in here.
