The Fender


The Fender Esquire

was very similar to

a Telecaster and

essentially a single

pickup version of the

Tele.  It shared the

same body and even

included routing for

a second pickup.

Although you can’t see it,

the neck plate has a large

“F” logo on it which first

appeared in 1965 shortly

after CBS bought

Fender in 1965.

of 1972 Fender Thinline


Note the addition

of the single F Hole in

  in 1972 Humbuckers were

added to the Thinline,

it featured standard

Tele hardware.

Japanese 1968

Telecaster Reissue

There were a few


produced in Japan

as well.  Many

collectors shy

away from these


however in our

opinion the quality

is quite high and

they can be

purchased at very

reasonable prices.
