What We Think

Condition: Used, Very Good

What a wild story and what a wildly good guitar--these limited edition Thinlines were crafted from true Honduran Mahogany recovered from the aftermath of hurricane Mitch.  That precious material, paired with a couple of Fender finest pickups out there, makes for a truly special take on a Fender classic.

SP Luthier Notes: Fret Dress and Setup

Manufacturer's Description from Fender

As a manufacturer we consider ourselves stewards of the environment—we make sure great wood gets turned into premium Fender instruments and into the hands of players. Not only are we dedicated to conscientious sourcing of tone wood to craft our instruments, we’re constantly searching for alternate woods and materials, including rescuing wood that otherwise may have languished on the forest floor.

A departure from Fender’s traditional tone wood choices, the 2017 Limited Edition American Elite Mahogany Tele Thinline tempers the traditional Tele bite with the rich sound and warm look of mahogany. Over the course of its journey from the forest floor to the player’s hands, this body wood has weathered natural disasters, acquiring more than a little mojo along the way.
