From Fender –

“With the Limited Edition Loaded Thinline Nocaster, the Fender Custom Shop has combined elements of the past and present into a bona fide modern classic.

We started with a semi-hollow ash body. From your first lick, you’ll experience an ultra-resonant blend of brightness, warmth, and ear-popping mids. And it feels like an old friend, thanks to the Custom Shop’s  Relic treatment.

The Limited Edition Thinline Loaded Nocaster combines all the elements of a classic Thinline Tele, with a few tweaks for contemporary players. The two-piece body is crafted from ash selected for its weight and grain, and then given a Relic flash coat lacquer finish that gives it the look and feel of a well-loved original piece.

The gorgeous quartersawn AA flame maple neck sports a “ ’57 V”-shaped profile that’s ideal for chord-work, while the 7.25” - 9.5” compound radius fingerboard is comfortable for almost any playing style. The pair of Hand-Wound Loaded ’51 Nocaster pickups, including the open-top neck pickup, are packed with pure sonic power and are tied together with Fat ‘50s Tele wiring for the fattest Tele tone possible.

Other features include 3-way switch, 1-ply Black Thinline Tele pickguard, Nocaster bridge with compensated brass saddles for accurate intonation, vintage-style tuning machines with Fender logo, bone nut and round string tree.“

This fabulous Custom Shop Tele was bought new in 2020, and it presents in new condition with no changed or modifications. It is a fantastic guitar to play.

At a featherweight 6.1 lbs this guitar is one of the lightest and most comfortable guitars we have ever listed.

And sonically, it just feels alive – no question that the light weight, semi hollow construction and a set of killer ’51 Nocaster pickups add up to veritable tone monster.

The Limited Edition Loaded Thinline Nocaster includes its deluxe hardshell case, detailed spec sheet and Certificate of Authenticity.
