Squier Vintage Modified '72 Telecaster Thinline Natural

The new Squier Vintage Modified ’72 Telecaster Thinline is a modern interpretation of the classic 1972 Telecaster that marked a dramatic change of direction for the Tele. The original late 1960’s model featured two single-coil pickups, but in 1972 the semi-hollow body Tele was updated with two roaring Wide Range humbuckers…

Squier’s Vintage Modified ’72 Telecaster Thinline evokes the popular second incarnation of that era’s stylishly enlightened Tele model. The original late-’60s version, with its two single-coil pickups, was updated in 1972 with two great-big, great-sounding Wide Range humbucking pickups for an even more distinctive sound and personality, and that’s exactly what Squier gives you here, along with a gorgeous semi-hollow ash body and white pearloid pickguard, smooth-playing maple neck and fingerboard, six-saddle strings-thru-body bridge and much more.
