1971 FenderThinline Telecaster – Salmon

It’s no secret that we have quite a few Thinline Telecasters, and this example from 1971 in Salmon is definitely one of our top picks! The maple fretboard and bright orange are an exceptional combo, and to see one this clean is a bonus. The neck on this example, and many of the other Thinlines of this era, is ridiculously comfortable with beautifully rounded fretboard edges and a medium C profile. This color is truly something else, and playability wise it sounds and feels absolutely incredible!
