Fender has officially released its signature Tele Thinline electric guitar for Spoon frontman Britt Daniel, which was first unveiled at Summer NAMM this year.

Let us Spoon-feed you the key specs (sorry) - chief among them the all-new Amarillo Gold lacquer finish, which adorns the lightweight semi-hollow ash body, promising some appealing resonant qualities.

Daniel has also stealthily spec’d an S-1 switch that adjusts between series and parallel pickup wiring for the Custom Shop hand-wound vintage-style bridge single coil and Texas Special Tele neck pickup.

There’s also a deep C maple neck with 9.5” radius fingerboard with medium-jumbo frets, Fender ClassicGear tuners, electrosocket output jack and an Elite hardshell case.
