What makes the Thin Skin so special? Well, the magic starts with a lightweight, resonant piece of ash or alder that sings with a loud clear voice. Then, our friends at Fender apply a thin fifties-style nitrocellulose finish to the wood. This “Thin Skin” allows the guitar to breathe and resonate just like our favorite vintage Fenders. With this classic sonic foundation established, Fender hot-rods the Thin Skins with several appointments that enhance playability, like a modern 9.5″ radius and narrow-tall 6105 frets which ensure a luxurious playing experience. Finally, Fender puts the cherry on top by dropping in American Vintage pickups that provide classic tone with modern clarity. Vintage vibe with modern playability come together to create an instant classic.
