Since 1946, the name Fender has become synonymous with all things rock 'n' roll: from Buddy Holly to Jimi Hendrix to Eric Clapton to Kurt Cobain and everything in between. Fender's iconic instruments such the Telecaster, are known the world over as the instruments that started the rock revolution, and they continue to be highly prized among today's hottest guitarists and collectors alike. Notable Telecaster players include Muddy Waters; Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones; Jimmy Page (on Led Zeppelin's studio recordings); Andy Summers of the Police; Jonny Greenwood, Thom Yorke and Ed O'Brien of Radiohead; Prince; Bruce Springsteen; Roy Buchanan; and The Edge of U2 has also begun to use a Telecaster on a regular basis.

1972 was a magical year for the Telecaster guitar. With several new designs, the Telecaster guitar was available with more options than ever before. The American Vintage '72 Tele Thinline features a warmer and rounder, semi-hollow ash body, "C"-shape maple neck, Bullet truss rod, '70s vintage hardtail strings-through Strat bridge, three-bolt neckplate, and two Fender "Wide Range" humbucking pickups.
