Instead of the usual single coils, this guitar comes with Fender's Fidelitron Humbucking Pickups for both the neck and the bridge. These are expected to produce tones that sit in the middle of thin Tele single coils and fat humbuckers. These pickups are controlled by a 3 way pickup selector and a simple master tone and volume control.

Other hardware include a Vintage style hard-tail Strat, a bone nut and a Top Hat Style Switch Tip. Fender will announce the pricing for this limited edition guitar very soon, for more information on the Fender Telecaster Thinline Super Deluxe, you can head over to Fender.

I've been playing almost fifty years. I was born the same year as the Tele! There is one Tele design mega-stupidity that I wish Fender would someday address: The pickup selector switch being straight in-line with the pots makes it very difficult to switch when the switch is against the knob. On my Teles, I do the Danny Gatton trick of bending the switch tang down so my finger can get to it easily. (Note: If you do this, use two pairs of needle nose pliers: One to bend and one to hold the switch toward the base, at the top of the curve. Otherwise you're likely to bend the switch inside the guitar resulting in a new switch: Learned this one the hard way~!)
I can understand the thing being lined up on the original control plate: There's a limited space to put it, but on the Thinlines, they could have angled it differently, but, nope...

cool trick

Thanks for sharing that cool Tele switch trick, I hope our eager readers heed the warning that they need two pairs of pliers to hold down the switch in place when bending.

Yeah.. I had a brand new

Yeah.. I had a brand new Tele and rendered it unplayable the first day! It worked out, though because I put in a 4-way switch to get the PU's in series.
I once bought a Gibson Blueshawk and ruined that the first day also! I didn't like the knobs, so I tried to change them... Unbeknownst to me, the dealer had a problem with people stealing knobs and super glued them all on... New volume pot. (Which was OK, as Gibson uses a linear taper volume pot which is completely stupid: You don't get much volume change until 5 or 6...
