Guitar String instrument String instrument Musical instrument Electric guitar
I have not bought a 'new' instrument in about 4 years and try not to but i could not find a used guitar that i was looking for until this morning at L+M. 72 Re-issue Thinline Tele with humbuckers !!! This is a big deal for me as i dont play anything with HB pickups. It will be a welcome addition for doing some CCR and Beatles tunes we are working on. It was 609.00 plus taxes and was told that they will match price anything i find in Canada for less for a period of 30 days and also if i am not satisfied will exchange it within that time period.
Band practice in about one hour so gonna put her through the pace.
Pics will be up shortly.

Oh, if you guys and gals see one that is cheaper in Canada, please let me know so i can show them. I was told it must be from a business, not Amazon etc...

Congratulations. You should like it. The design and layout are nice, two humbuckers, single volume and tone, one switch, comfortable weight. Mine's made in Mexico, got it at the Kingston Guitar Shop. The eventual plan is to upgrade the pickups but the stock ones aren't bad, just not true WRHBs.

Thanks buddy. I had a good practice and its perfect for what i need. I will upgrade the pots, switch in a few months. The pickups are okey for now.

I have always been drawn to the Thinline. Nice grab.

As for the price, I have a business and could advertise one for $50.00 for ya! :) Yep, I'm kidding.

If this is a MIM, you got a great deal!! FYI, pull those HBs and send them to Brandonwound Pickups for a rebuild to more vintage WRHB specs -- its $90 USD per and you won't believe the difference! I have a rebuild in my 72 Custom RI; IMHO its pretty darn close to an original WRHB that will set you back a few hundred $$.
