MJT & Fender Telecaster Thinline, Mahogany Body, Ice Blue w/ Lindy Fralin Pickups

$1,599.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a Telecaster Thinline Partscaster featuring a Fender Licensed Allparts/MJT neck and an Ice Blue Metallic relic'd mahogany body, outfitted with boutique Lindy Fralin pickups. A unique spin on the Telecaster Thinline platform, this guitar pairs the mahogany semi-hollow body with a maple neck capped with a thick slab ebony fretboard. This pairing offers the glassy articulation and treble-centric clarity of the ebony board with the inherent warmth and tonal breadth of mahogany. The Lindy Fralin pickups have plenty of chewy twang and percussive, sparkling cut, coupled to a harness with a USA-made three-way switch and CTS 250k pots. The guitar is featherweight at 6lbs 11oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, easy-playing action and accurate intonation.

The maple neck has a slender C-shaped profile carve with moderate shoulder and lightly rolled fretboard edges, measuring .805" deep at the 1st fret and .940" at the 12th. The ebony fretboard has a vintage-spec 7 1/4" radius, and the slender frets have their full factory height, showing moderate wear beneath the plain strings on frets 1-5, with wear extending more faintly on the crowns until fret 7. The scale length is a full 25 1/2", and the nut measures 1.650" in width. The matching Ice Blue-finished peghead features Kluson-style tuners that turn smoothly and hold pitch well.

The electronics function as intended, with the Lindy Fralin pickups wired to a traditional harness with a three-way switch and Master Volume and Tone knobs. The thin nitro lacquer Ice Blue Metallic finish was professionally relic'd by MJT (who also finished the body and peghead), exhibiting prominent lacquer checking, various nicks and marks associated with the relic process, and some additional indistinguishable marks from light, careful use. The finish is worn to bare maple as part of the MJT relic process along the majority of the neck profile, and the neck finish is silky smooth and nigh flawless.

A padded gigbag is included.
