Telecaster® Classic Series 1972 Thinline Electric Guitar Kit
This electric guitar kit rocks!
The Fender Classic Series '72 Telecaster Thinline has become a staple for guitarists, who are after the super cool, supercharged look and tone of vintage Telecasters in a reliable, modern package.
The `72 Thinline had an American White Ash body, which you can use if you want, but this extraordinary kit has been upgraded to an American Black Walnut body blank which combines nicely with the Big Leaf Figured Maple laminated top for superb appearance and tone.
In 1972 Fender introduced the wide range humbucker, a unique design from Seth Lover, the inventor of the original "humbucking" pickup. They were known and loved for their clarity and top-end sparkle. The hand wound, modern wide range pickups used in this kit are designed and custom made by Martin A Smith in Australia, who has taken the basic design and made some tweaks to produce his own modern take on it.
Included in this kit is a printed, full size plan of the 72 Thinline so that once you have completed your masterpiece you can frame the plan and display it, and your guitar with pride.
