Squier by Fender Vintage Modified '72 Thinline Telecaster

Squier’s Vintage Modified ’72 Telecaster Thinline evokes the popular second incarnation of that era’s stylishly enlightened Tele model.

The original late-’60s version, with its two single-coil pickups, was updated in 1972 with two great-big, great-sounding Wide Range humbucking pickups for an even more distinctive sound and personality, and that’s exactly what Squier gives you here, along with a gorgeous semi-hollow ash body and white pearloid pickguard, smooth-playing maple neck and fingerboard, six-saddle strings-thru-body bridge and much more.

The reviews on this guitar may be the best of any Squier made. This is truly a beautiful, sweet sounding guitar. Not rare but hard to find. It’s an excellent version of it’s Fender Twin, including Fender brand pickups, and in many ways an equal, at 1/2 the price.

Factory Authorized Refurbished Instruments

In addition to recovering unique older Epiphone, Squier, Mexican Fender, and other mid-range instruments for resale, I also sell these newer refurbished instruments. These are a great deal for anyone that wants a quality instrument with a limited budget. We can sell for less than discounted new! Why buy a cheaper knock-off when you can have a GENUINE Squier by Fender for the same investment.

This instrument was refurbished by a factory authorized refurbisher. Unlike a new instrument, or a typical used instrument, this one was completely checked out, and tested by factory authorized skilled instrument Technicians and Luthiers.

Many of the instruments coming through the refurbisher’s shop have no physical damage, but need electronics repairs. The factory rejects them as well as those with finish flaws or other physical damage. Many instruments are rejected simply because the color is not “up to specifications”.

After each instrument has been inspected, repaired, if required, or just passed as “no repairs needed”, they are set-up, re-boxed, marked as “Used” by the refurbisher with a light stamp on the neck, and assigned a new serial number.

I look for high quality, high value instruments for my budget customers, and unique models that are limited editions, out of production, or just beautiful instruments for everyone, that I can offer at a great price. I will sometimes take a instrument with a finish flaw if it is a nice instrument and I can pass it on for a great price.

Any flaws not repaired, or repairs of any physical damage found on any instrument I sell, will be noted hereThis instrument has no damage and did not need any repairs.

I believe every instrument should have a second chance, and every aspiring instrument player, should have a chance to buy a good instrument, at a fair price…. This is one of those instruments…. Don’t let it pass you by…. I offer my instruments at a fair price, but open the option for a best offer. I always reject low-ball offers, but always consider honest ones. Try it, I may be in a good mood today!

Thanks for Looking…
