    My first post!
    Fender Squire Thinline 69 Telecaster
    Fender Reliced
    Beautiful Guitar

    Up for sale here is my much beloved Telecaster.THis guitar is a 1997 Korean built Squier Telecaster thinline and is from the pro tone seies which are regarded superior to MIM Fenders.Its a thinline Telecaster hollow body with an F hole, finished in trans red gloss polyester with cream binding over Ash body wood. The pickguard is a 70's Fender style white pearloid Job carrying the VOL / TONE controls as well as the 3 way pickup selector switch.I have changed the volume and tone knobs to smaller gold ones with white pearl caps on them.

    I have owned this guitar from new and a couple of years ago made a few upgrades.The original machineheads were alright but slipped out of tune more than normal so I had them replaced with gold Grover double locking tuners which are in the photos above.
    I also changed the pickups to DiMarzio twang king pickups as these had a more "Teleish" sound.
    Although the original pickups were ok one had become faulty so I changed them both to a matching set.Whilst this work was getting done for me the Luthier offered to put the fender logo on the headstock so that is whats on it now, though I must stress that this guitar is a Squier and not an American fender even though it is a s good as alot of Fenders I have owned.

    I am based in Portrush and am open to any reasonable offer but wont be letting this go for a silly price as I do love it.I have seen them go for 400 in the last year on ebay as these are becoming harder and harder to find.

    PM me for more details.

    Neck profile is a slim C shape. On the back of the headstock there looks to be some ever so slight birdseye patterning going on. As you can see its a maple fingerboard with black dot inlays and 21 medium to thin frets which are in very good condition though do show some signs of playing as this guitar has had alot of use from me.


    The guitar only has very light scratches as you will see yourself from the photos and has been well looked after as it is my pride and joy but Im more of a strat man and fancy buying something with humbuckers for a change
