Expertly selected woods, top-of-the-line components and master craftsmanship from the Fender Custom Shop come together to make the Artisan Koa Thinline Tele a fascinating guitar. Take a Fiji mahogany hollow body and bind a 4A flame koa top for striking looks. Add a roasted 3A birdseye maple neck with a “’63 C”-shaped profile and 9.5”-radius African blackwood fingerboard, and you have a brilliantly crafted, warm and dark Tele with wonderful low end.
A blend of hand-wound loaded Nocaster® neck and open loaded Nocaster bridge pickups generate vintage-inspired tone.
Other appointments include Fat ‘50s tone control assembly and wiring, ’58–’63 Tele bridge with RSD saddles, 21 6105 frets, 3-way switch, fully shielded 1-ply Brown Shell pickguard, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree.
