Fender USA Telacaster Thinline Sunburst 1976 (07/31)

$ 7021.76

1976 Thinline arrival! 1976 Alder body and sunburst thinline arrival! The body has a large wood grain that makes you feel ash, but it is definitely alder. It also existed until 1976. The PU date is 1974, and the Tone pot date is 1973. Although the date of the Vol pot is not visible due to soldering, it has the same atmosphere as the Tone pot and seems to be from the same period. The frets and nuts have been replaced, and the set screws and selector knobs on each saddle have also been replaced.

The body has dents, scratches, paint peeling, etc. There is no noticeable damage and it is suitable for the model year. In addition, it is polished and has a glossy atmosphere that combines dignity and luxury. There is a crack in the upper right part of the pickguard front PU, which has been repaired with aluminum tape from the back. There is a buckle scratch in the center of the body back. Both sides of the neck frets and the fingerboard surface have peeling paint and darkening, but there is little roughness or catching, which is not a problem for 70s players. Although the 1st string peg is a little loose, there is no problem with current tuning. Each hardware has a little deterioration of plating and feeling of use, but there is no problem in operation.

There is no problem with the neck condition, and the truss rod can be adjusted in the direction of tightening or loosening, and can still be adjusted in the direction of tightening. There are no noticeable string marks on the frets, and the rest is about 70 to 80%. Currently, the string height is adjusted to about 2.0mm on the 12th fret 6th string side and about 1.5mm on the 1st string side.

Overall, there are signs of use and aging, but it is in relatively good condition suitable for the model year. Although the cereal on the joint plate was made in 1975 and the date of each Pot and PU does not match, considering the manufacturing process and background at that time, I can feel the consistency in 1976. The frets and nut have been replaced, and the height is solid, so it’s still playable! It’s cool to think of the feeling of use as a realistic aging! It goes well with the PU that makes you feel refreshed, and when you get hooked, it’s sure to be your best companion! It’s a recommended one! Adjustable in the direction of loosening, still adjustable in the direction of tightening
