Fender has recently launched a signature model Tele Thinline in honour of Spoon frontman, Britt Daniel. Those familiar with the American indie-rock outfit will know Britt’s buttery guitar tone.
In a promotion video posted by Fender, Britt is found talking about his upbringing. His dad’s guitar collection meant he grew up in a sea of sound, learning the piano and bass before moving to guitar. The video sees him admiring the efforts of Bob Dylan and his ability to, how his dad puts it, write “sturdy great songs“.
The Britt Daniel Tele Thinline is Fender’s tribute to the Spoon songsmith. Fans and players alike can absorb the rich twang of the frontman’s tone.
Britt says in the new video that he prefers to not have to keep changing guitars during a show, opting for a single quality guitar when playing live. Ideally, that means that this new model can cover many bases.
The Thinline semi-hollow ash body is finished with a homely Amarillo Gold lacquer finish. A Deep “C” shaped neck is paired with a comfortable 9.5”-radius fingerboard and loaded 22 medium jumbo frets. Finally, you get a set of Fender’s ClassicGear tuners. The tuners provide vintage looks with a modern 18:1 gear ratio. All of this is strapped into an iconic six-saddle Telecaster style bridge.
