Fender Modern Telecaster Thinline in Olympic White

In 2011, Fender is celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Telecaster by releasing 12 special “tele-bration” models, staggered for shipment throughout the year. The latest release in the “tele-bration” is the Modern Telecaster Thinline in Olympic White. In my opinion, this is the most beautiful of the series, and limited to a run of 500.  It has a chambered ash body, nitro-cellulose laquer and tortoiseshell double binding that matches the non-Tele style 4-ply scratchplate. Only 42 are heading for the UK. If you want one, it will cost you about £1,500.
