The Fender Made In Japan (MIJ) Traditional ‘70s Telecaster Thinline is here presented in Left Handed orientation and a Natural finish. Very few of this highly limited edition Special Run model have been produced, and the build quality is stunning; yet more evidence of why we’re such big fans of Fender’s Japanese-made guitars here at Merchant City Music. Being a Traditional ‘70s model, this Tele looks and feels like an instrument from the period.

Fender MIJ Traditional ‘70s Telecaster Thinline Left Handed Special Run Natural

Fender’s MIJ range of guitars has only recently been more readily available in the UK, finally filling a demand which has been there for some time. Though coming in at a significant cost reduction over American-made instruments, these Made In Japan guitars represent the best of Japanese build quality. They are, in other words, world class.

If you’re looking at a Traditional ‘70s model, such as this Left Handed Thinline Telecaster, you’re likely to be after a guitar which is highly authentic to the ‘70s period of Tele’s. This Thinline model features a body cavity, giving it a much more open, fat tone. These sonic attributes are only enhanced by the inclusion of twin Fender Wide Range Humbucking pickups, controlled via a 3-position blade.

In terms of feel, the “U”-shaped neck is fatter than your run-of-the-mill “C”-shaped neck, ideal for those with larger hands, or for someone who just likes some chunk to their neck. It’s certainly in-keeping with the workhorse nature of a Tele. The traditional 7.25”-radius fretboard is perfect for raw blues, rock ’n’ roll or country styles.

This Special Run Left Handed Fender MIJ Traditional ‘70s Telecaster Thinline is a truly delightful homage to this golden age in Fender’s history.
