The year 1968 saw the debut of the Telecaster Thinline—designed as a lighter new version of the Telecaster due to a shortage of lightweight ash body wood. The ’68 Telecaster Thinline Journeyman Relic captures that year’s model in all its brilliance, with a few custom modifications including a Bigsby B5 bridge and tailpiece for added vibrato. A semi-hollow Thinline mahogany or ash body wears a perfectly worn-in Journeyman Relic lacquer finish. The rift-sawn maple neck features a ’60s-style “oval C” profile, 9.5”-radius rift-sawn maple fingerboard, and 21 narrow tall (6105) frets.

Custom Shop hand-wound Twisted Tele pickups provide extra-hot output for beautiful resonance and are hooked up to modern Telecaster wiring and a three-way switch. Other features include a three-ply white pearl pickguard, Schaller “F” tuning machines, bone nut, and wing string tree. Also includes a deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
