Thinline Fender Telecaster guitar This late 60’s Thinline Fender Telecaster once belonged to Donovan. It was the first electric guitar he ever owned and he played it at the Isle Of White Festival in 1970. Bernard Sumner used it with New Order during the Technique period and was seen with it on Top Of The Pops when they did “Round And Round”. www.johnny-marr.com/guitarchestra-2/thinline-fender-telecastermore
Baker has been seen using a Fender Deluxe Thinline Telecaster with a rosewood neck on her recent North American dates, including her sets at Newport Folk Festival and SF Outside Lands (from where the photos and interview are taken); according to the interview, her guitar features Fender Vintage Noiseless Pickups and is named 'Virginia' (for Virginia Woolf)more
> This lovely guitar was relic'd Mexican Fender '72 Re-issue Thinline Telecaster by Dax&Co Custom Shop. They do great great work. Jeff has been super happy with this guitar. It's all original, except for the Dax relic'd finish. The serial number has been removed from the back of the headstock and penciled onto the neck end inside the neck block. The fretboard edges have been hand rolled, and the fret ends dressed for a smooth, comfortable, worn in feel. The finish has been removed from the back of the neck for faster play. It has a three way selector as it would if it were a '72. The u-shaped neck and 7.5" radius feels great in the hand and has no fret wear. The guitar sounds and plays fantastic. It is very light and resonant and has all of the Tele twang you can handle. This feels as good as or maybe even better than any Fender custom shop relic. This is Jeff's and it's a tough one to put in the sale.more
Used on *In the End*, as mentioned in this June 28, 2019 *Music Radar* interview. > “I have two main Telecasters. I have the original 1973 one that I bought in the early 90s, which is your bog standard Telecaster and then I’ve got a Thinline Telecaster with humbuckers in it that I use for the heavier stuff.”more
¨My other main guitar. Before Gretsch, all I played was Teles - I´ve got about seven of them now. We´ll have about five different tunings in any set, so I bring one main and one spare. They´ve all got their own little sticker or idea behind them. ´Imagine´ is my favorite song of all time - I don´t think a song with more purpose has ever been written - so that´s what I chose for this. (Total Guitar, January 2017)¨more
"I’m playing a Tele Thinline, and that’s what I used on most of the record. It has a little more character, a little more balance, and I can put chromes on it and the character doesn’t suffer." said Kristin in [this interview](https://www.premierguitar.com/articles/25227-kristin-hersh-raw-bones-dressed-in-colors?page=2)more
