Fender discontinued this in favor of the Elite Thinline, which I also have in stock, but if you favor the traditional Tele bridge pickup assembly, this is the one.
2015 Fender American Deluxe Telecaster Thinline, (front), (back), (side), (headstock), (N3/S-1 switch), (case).
Stylishly appointed, super lightweight, but underneath it all it's all Tele twang! It features a light semi-hollow ash body, single F-hole, tortoise shell binding, and polished chrome hardware. Other features include a one-piece maple neck with a "modern C" profile, compound-radius (9.5"-14") maple fingerboard, 22 medium jumbo frets, raised chrome logo, staggered locking tuners, through-body 6-saddle bridge plate, comfortable contoured heel and neckplate, and four-ply tortoise shell pickguard.

: If you're not familiar with my site, it's simple, and you'll love it or hate it: (1) This page has gear that has recently arrived; (2) Links at the bottom of this page take you to most of our gear, logically arranged by manufacturer or type, e.g. (3) Lastly, my contains a lot of gear that hasn't made it back to the proper pages yet and is sort of in limbo until I move it.
It's not a fancy site but it remains unchanged since '98 and I firmly believe, "if it ain't broke - don't fix it." All guitars and other gear have pictures.
The fact is, however, the body size is very close to the size of a Les Paul, both in width and depth, but yet it retains the tone of a Dot.
The body is laminated like a Dot, but they use a maple/poplar/maple laminate rather than all maple; the neck retains the solid mahogany construction.
These pickups are powerful, not unlike a P90, with more beef than most singles and cleaner and more articulate.
Fralin describes them as a cross between their P-92 and Twangmaster.
These were hard to find on the open market 9 years ago, marketed only through a small network of around 7 stores and online retailers.
