Squier-Telecaster-ThinlineWell, it looks like Squier must be seeing some success from its recently debuted Vintage Modified line, because this morning the company expanded the series with a brand new addition––the Vintage Modified Telecaster Thinline.

Yep, based on Fender’s classic ’69 Tele Thinline (you can read my review here,) the Squier VM Telecaster Thinline will sport the same semi-hollow construction, unique single f-hole design, and tight fretboard radius as the original (7.25“) while including some new modifications as well.

The guitar features a 24.75” scale length (a bit of a departure for Squier/Fender,) a pair of Duncan Designed Tele pickups, alder body, maple C-shape neck, rosewood fretboard w/22 MJ frets, master volume & tone controls, 3-way pickup switching, 6-saddle “Strings-Thru-Body” bridge, and a 3-ply pickguard (parchment.)

The Vintage Modified Telecaster Thinline is available in Shoreline Gold, and Black poly finishes, and is apparently already in stores and selling for less than $280.
